Jesus First

When I was a kid growing up I can remember coming home from school with my brother Ken, turning on our little black and white television and watching Superman.

Come to the Well

Every April, TIME magazine publishes a list of the 100 most influential people in the world, drawing on a year’s worth of headlines and articles. It’s a subjective list, but still gives a sense of who the movers and shakers are in any given year.

One of the most popular super heroes in our culture today is Spider Man. Any Spider Man fans out there? People love Spider Man. He may not be the fastest, strongest, biggest, smartest, best looking super hero, but he could be the best loved.

The Power of Grace

The world’s longest running musical is Les Miserables based on the book by the same name written by Victor Hugo. Some have called it “one of the half-dozen greatest novels of the world,” which usually means that nobody has read it. Let’s take a poll.

Today is “Symbol Sunday.” At least that’s what I’m calling it. Symbol Sunday. This morning we’re going to celebrate the Lord’s Table and we’re going to talk about believer’s baptism, two ancient symbols that Christ followers have practiced all over the world for the last two thousand years.

Remember Me

Throughout the years we’ve often talked about Acts 2:42 being the target on the wall for Valley View Community Church. It’s a great passage because it reveals the things that the early church was devoted to and it’s simple to remember.
