Church in the Valley


Pastor Anderline Bredy had the privilege to baptizing Nicole May Emard and Dave Jamieson dedicated her children, Nathan and Elizabeth, to the Lord. Nicole is a Teacher’s Assistant, active Acts of Kindness volunteer, and incredible supporter of our Community Single Moms group. To know Nicole is to smile and to join her passion for mental health and children. We are blessed to welcome her into our Church in the Valley family. 


 
A HUGE THANK YOU FROM THE STUDENTS AT SHUSWAP ADVENTIST SCHOOL
Last November when COVID-19 cancelled their annual Christmas program, the 35 students at Shuswap Adventist School in Salmon Arm, British Columbia decided to turn their program into a project. It had to be meaningful, and it had to be challenging. So, after vigorous discussion, they decided that they would help feed the world. To achieve their goal of raising $10,000, they invited ADRA Canada (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to partner with them.

To know a little bit more about what it’s like to be hungry, they organized a “Ration Meal Challenge.” For a day, they ate an ADRA refugee diet of plain rice for breakfast, and cornmeal patties and beans for lunch. But Finn (Gr. 7) points out that “it wasn’t the same. We didn’t have to wait in line for hours to get food and water.” And Jonathan (Gr. 9) adds that, unlike millions of refugees, we know we’ll have more food at home. We also have clean water and shelter. Everyone agrees, though, that the Ration Meal Challenge was a great learning experience.

Their “starvation day” spurred them on in their letter writing campaign. All helped with writing the 200 letters and addressing the 200 envelopes. They sent them out to everyone they could think of: parents and their coworkers, grandparents, friends at church and in the community, and many others. They explained that the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the Canadian government would match every dollar raised at a ratio of 4:1.

Then they prayed and waited. It was an exciting time when donations started to arrive. Regular updates were met with loud cheers.

Their hard work and long hours over many days paid off: They far exceeded their goal and raised $32,000. Matching funds turned the $32,000 into $128,000! They attribute their amazing success to their many donors and thank God for each one.

What can 35 students in a small school do to help millions of starving people? The students at Shuswap Adventist School now know: Quite a bit—with God’s help, ADRA Canada, Canadian Foodgrains Bank, generous people, and a personal commitment to making a difference for good!

We want our church to come back stronger and more unified from this experience. Normally we talk about how digital technologies are a powerful means to scale up traditional ministry and evangelism, but COVID-19 has pushed the need for digital to be the priority. The NAD BIG DATA + Social Media Services has created resources we think you will find useful to help migrate your worship service and help you build an online community for your church.

Route 66
Reading Through the Bible

Have you ever thought of reading the Bible through in one year? The idea is simple, yet profound. It’s also life-changing!
We want to invite you and your family as we begin this new year for a journey through Route 66 in 2021. We will be preaching and teaching through the entire Bible this year and we want to invite you to experience the insights, joy, and satisfaction gained from reading the entire Bible.
You can do it in as little as 15 minutes a day with our One Year Bible Plan. And you’ll love the fact that you can join us online every Saturday morning as we will be preaching on what you’ve read, and online each Wednesday evening we’ll be answering all your questions about all the difficult Bible verses you’ve been encountering during your reading.
So, if reading through the Bible is something you’ve always wanted to do then join us for our Route 66: Reading Through the Bible in One Year.
Join us Saturdays @ 11:30 online at www.churchinthevalley.ca/stream/
 as we start this incredible journey!
Have questions or want more info just email us at hello@churchinthevalley.ca.

“Faith Over Fear”

How to Gain Victory Over Brokenness
Lorne was on top of the world the day she married the man of her dreams. But within weeks of their marriage, it became painfully obvious that something was wrong. When the truth came out about her new husband, it really hurt, and it left deep scars, but despite the heartbreak, disappointment, brokenness, and betrayal, she navigated her way to joy and peace.
