Pray More Ministry

Several years back, Lake Valley called a night of worship through prayer for women. It was a cry out before the Lord. A few weeks later, several Lake Valley women gathered at the Russell home and started seeking the Lord to see what He was leading us to do. Very soon we felt led by the Holy Spirit to start meeting together as women to pray. That is how we became the Pray…

J.A.M. (Jesus and Me)

JAM is back in session! JAM is a high energy bible study designed just for our kids who are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Each session consists of dinner, worship, biblical truths, games, a memory verse, and lots of fun and laughter.

Student Ministry

We are excited to announce our new name for Wednesday Youth Service: AWE FACTOR! We want the students of Lake Valley to show the AWE of Jesus in their daily lives. The definition of awe is “a strong feeling of respect or amazement brought on by something that is beautiful or sacred.” Shouldn’t we all feel that way about Jesus with everything he has done in our lives and…

The First Principles series is a set of 13, six-session dialogue-based Bible study guides for use by church leaders and mature Christians to establish believers and churches in the faith. The First Principles series was…

Grandparent’s Day

Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life. PROVERBS 16:31 We live in a disposable society where anything “new” is considered better. We, far too often, chase after the novel and discard the proven. Our entertainment and media often treats the wisdom of experience and a life well lived as outdated, old fashioned, and undesirable. As a church, we…

WOO4

My WOO journey started before I was born. My story, with all its mess, failures, and beauty was fashioned by a loving Creator to be used to bring glory to Himself… wait… all of it? Seriously? That truth alone has brought me more freedom, healing, and joy, as I continue to learn how deeply I am seen, loved, and accepted. God allowed all of it, and He brings…

MOO & CR

Is it possible for you to see something through my eyes for a minute? Let me be real here and you just might see what I’m looking at… I’ve been at Lake Valley Community Church for well over a decade – something like 16 years. When I came here, I had been working on something that I had squirreled away in my brain. I was playing a mental chess game with myself…

Summer is winding down, students are heading back to school, families are getting back into work and school routines, and maybe the weather will even begin to cool eventually. But there is also an air of excitement around Lake Valley as  we begin to come back together after the summer break and look towards our fall…
