BUILDING MISSIONS TEAM

Construction Mission Team

Each year our construction team helps a church complete a new building, an addition to an existing building, or a renovation of an older building.  Our team started in 1994 when Builders For Christ (BFC) provided the labor to add the classroom wing on Valley’s building.  After the last BFC team left, we found that Valley had people with the skills to finish the project, and we worked Friday nights and Saturdays from August to January on the completion.  Since then, we have done a project each year in a spirit of giving back what we had been given.  

 

The team has expanded to include workers from other churches; our largest efforts have engaged about 50 volunteers. Tasks we engage include installing suspended ceilings, doors, trim, cabinets, vinyl siding, and ceramic tile, as well as interior painting.  We have a kitchen team who have collected favorite menus and provide great lunch and dinner meals.  We arrange for lodging with discounted rates in local motels who provide breakfasts.  We usually arrive at the work site for a walk-through Sunday evening, and then work Monday through Friday.  Some volunteers are not able to work the whole week, and they come for a few days.  Sometimes we take on “spring practice” projects in which we work Friday and Saturday on smaller projects that allow new people to find out how the team operates.

 

Some of our “regulars” started with no construction experience and have learned many new skills over the years.  We always make sure we have skilled people for each task to be done.  They lead small task groups and teach the skills for new people.

YOUTH MISSIONS TEAM


Upcoming Youth Mission Trip for WEEK OF HOPE is JULY 15th - 20th to Grand Rapids, MI

This summer our Junior High & Senior High youth will be heading to Grand Rapids Michigan to serve in a "Week of Hope" through Group Mission Trips. https://groupmissiontrips.com/trip-types/community-service/grand-rapids-mi-2018/


We went through Group last year in MN and had a great experience.  This year we will use Group again but will head over to Grand Rapids Michigan and help serve in many different ways in the community there by helping in homeless shelters, food pantries, simple home projects, boys and girls clubs, and senior centers. Last year the youth LOVED the various ways they served! Check out the photos below!  We will be joining youth from other churches and together we will be serving at a variety of sites in the community including at a local food pantry, a homeless shelter, and a Boys and Girls Club. We will also have some worship time together to challenge ourselves to apply God's word to our daily service. It's a week full of growing and serving the Lord and meeting lots of new people!  


Please contact Nate or Chrissy Milhans if you would like to sign up or have any questions. ncmilhans@gmail.com



BRAZIL MISSIONS TEAM

The Brazil mission trip this year will return to the Ticuna indigenous community of Porto Espiritual located on the Amazon River near where Peru, Colombia and Brazil converge.  This will be the third year working in the community.  We also plan to spend some time in another Ticuna community upriver during the trip.


The attachments contain details for involvement in the trip as well as an application.


As always it takes the whole body of Christ to engage in mission work successfully.  God will place on the heart of some to physically go and be a part of the trip.  If this is not the case there are still several ways you can participate in the trip.  First, you can begin now to pray that God will call out people to go.  Pray for these Ticuna communities that the hearts of the people will be open to the gospel and that the believers there will be strengthened.  You may also give to help others go.  It is not inexpensive to do mission work in remote places.  You may give to help a specific person who will make a commitment to go or you may designate money toward helping others go by contributing to the designated Brazil Fund here at Valley. We always take clothing and over-the-counter medications to give away in the course of our ministries to the people there.  You may make these contributions as well.  Please contact Pastor Larry at pastorlarry@valleyconnex.org for details.


Thank you for your prayerful consideration in being a part of the 2018 Brazil team.

We want to vastly expand our missions efforts for the spread of the gospel to every people group on the planet, forging a dynamic network of pathways connecting churches and individuals directly to IMB missionary teams around the world.
