Joy to the World

A VRL Special Christmas Offering

Each year, 100% of what is given during the Christmas services goes outside the walls of Valley Real Life to make a difference in the community and the world.  Throughout Scripture, God reminds us to care for our neighbors. We want to help everyone in our congregation do that by finding a way to personally care for the physical and spiritual needs all around us. With our four aims of loving kids, redeeming stories, planting churches, and discipling nations, we have chosen to focus our local attention on pregnancy, poverty, trafficking, recovery, schools, orphans, and those in the foster systems. We hope everyone at VRL can find one place to be involved in serving locally.
