We are people who have faced valleys of struggle, failure, consequences, pain, and loss.
We have been radically changed by the reality that God’s Grace flows down to meet us where we are and changes us from the inside out.
With humility and gratitude, we have become “valley people” who seek to help others discover the grace we have found.
At Grace Valley church we sincerely want to build a church culture that is not based on an individual personality or name. That being said we are very proud of the staff team that faithfully serves this church. Our team works very hard to build personal relationships with the Grace Valley family. If you are not personally connected to someone on our staff, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to answer any questions you might have and facilitate an opportunity to get to know you better.
We would love to meet you personally whether that be a friendly email exchange or phone call, a good conversation over a meal or coffee, or in person at a worship service sometime soon.
We will pursue the vision Jesus gave His Church represented through The Great Commandment and The Great Commission as the two pillars of what it means to be a Christ-centered Church.
37Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
18Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Aspirational values are exactly that, aspirational. These values take a lifetime to develop so the real value is in the growth we experience as we go. We may stumble and take a few steps forward to slide a few steps back, but we aspire to be people who increasingly display these character traits. We also know that values must be adopted individually, so each one is worded in the first person.
