COUNSELING SERVICES EXPANDED AT VALLEY MILLS!
We are excited to share that Valley Mills Christian Church has expanded our professional counseling services. Pastoral staff are always willing to provide support and spiritual guidance at no cost, but sometimes life stressors result in the need for deeper psychotherapy with certified or licensed counselors who have specific training in understanding clinical etiology and bio-physical chemical imbalances. Board Certified Pastoral Counselor (Dr. John Nolan) is now offering counseling appointments to anyone from Valley Mills Christian Church OR the community for a substantially reduced rate of $25 per one-hour session during his office hours at church on Mondays from 5-9pm or Wednesdays from 2-7pm. To schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Nolan at 765-676-5310. We hope that this initiative will bless our community members and families, as access to supportive emotional health services can be challenging.
FOOD DRIVE DATES: FEB. 18 & 25 - Please shop the sales in the next few weeks and be prepared to help with our Valley Mills Food Drive coming up soon! ALL TYPES OF NON-PERISHABLE ITEMS ARE NEEDED.
Items can be dropped off in the basket outside of the Reception Office anytime. Thank you in advance for supporting this ministry of Valley Mills so we can continue to bless those in need right here in our community.
