Amazingly, in this past year we have seen unstoppable relational momentum coming out of our next generation ministries!
Where there had been no place during Covid for kids to be real and find relationships, they found a home here at Valley Real Life. Our desire is to build on that momentum by creating a space for this generation and beyond to explore Jesus as they grow deeper in their relationship and connection to Christ and with others.
Every year we take 2 special offerings. The first is our Christmas Eve offering which focuses on local and international out reach with 100% of the gifts going to ministries outside the walls of VRL. Our second special offering goes towards expanding the kingdom of God through VRL in a specific, strategic and God lead way. So, this year, our Mother’s Day Offering, called Pave the Way, will ensure that VRL can build a strong foundation to support this investment going forward.
Pave the Way will reach more kids and students than ever before creating new relational environments and adventures while preparing for the next phase in our expansion. We will do this through constructing a massive indoor playground, a parent hang out, and a freshly themed children’s area. Pave the Way will also help to expand the lobby over 4,000 square feet providing a space for more relational connections. This is because, YOU have stepped up to our vision of Reaching the World for Jesus, ONE person at a time. While we are Paving the Way for the next phase in what God is doing here at VRL, we are literally also going to be paving a new access road. With more and more people moving to our surrounding area, we want to be prepared for this exciting growth. Without an additional road, we cannot grow, and we don’t want to stop what God is doing here at VRL. Our target is to break ground on the next phase of our expansion this fall into next year.
VRL has been disciplined in putting aside funds each month to go towards this project and the eventual expansion. We want to be good stewards of God’s money and feel confident that this is our next step. We have reached a balance over $1 million that will be put towards this project. Through Pave the Way, we are aiming to raise $500,000.
Will you help Pave the Way for the next phase in our expansion?
