Special Offerings

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Peace and Global Witness Offering of $437 that was collected on World Communion Sunday, October 7.  Gifts to this Special Offering help to promote the peace of Christ by addressing systems and situations of poverty and injustice throughout the world.  50 percent of the offering is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice through education and Christian witness.  In addition, Valley’s Mission Commission has designated that 25 percent of the offering will go to Chagrin Falls Park Community Center and 25 percent to help fund the Dougbe River Presbyterian School in Liberia, a ministry of the Presbytery of Western Reserve.

The next Special Offering – the Christmas Joy Offering – will be collected on December 23 & 24.

Mitten and $5 for “Feet and Fingers” Collection

Look for a snowman and collection box in Fellowship Hall!  This frosty guy is there to remind us of cold weather to come, and offer us an opportunity to keep local kids cozy.  We are asking members to purchase hats, mittens and or scarves to place in the box; so they can be delivered to local children before the really cold, snowy weather begins.

Envelopes can, also, be found for our $5 for “Feet and Fingers” outreach to our North Church partners.  Your monetary donations can be placed in the nearby box.  Donations will be used to purchase adult gloves, hats and socks.  Thank you for your warm response to our neighbors in need.  Mission Commission

Socks for FDR Academy

Valley Church will be collecting socks for the children of FDR Academy in Cleveland to help children in need this winter.  Child sizes 5-adult size 13 are needed.   A basket will be available in Fellowship Hall for the collected socks.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity as we reach out to those in need this Christmas season.  Mission Commission
