In our Local Community:
We provide members with gallon size bags that contain a new pair of socks, personal hygiene items, a bottle of water, a granola or cereal bar, a postcard about the Valley Church of Christ, and information about local resources. Many of our members keep one-three Blessing Bags in their cars that can be passed out to anyone they come across asking for help.

The Barnabas Journey
“The Barnabas Journey” is a ministry by which a loving and faithful couple travels to remote congregations, throughout the United States, staying at each congregation for a designated period of time, to provide assistance and encouragement to ministers, their families, and to congregations without a full or part-time minister. Right here in our own country, there are churches whose ministers, families and leaders experience similar challenges as those in mission fields around the world. “The Barnabas Journey” seeks to provide these churches, and the families who serve them, the kind of encouragement exemplified by the Apostles in the New Testament. For more information about this ministry, go to TheBarnabasJourney.com.
