Its that time of year again! Time for the state of Alaska to gather together and encourage each other. Go check out the Lectureship information and Reigster.
The anticipation, relief and excitement rise daily as the Valley church of Christ gets ready for its first Sunday Assembly in our new building. We could not say enough words of thanks to those to whom we are in debt. There have been 100’s of excellent construction workers, many caring volunteers giving many 1000’s of hours of labor and service, much sacrificed to raise funds and donate property, and more determination and patience than could ever be described.
Give honor to whom Honor is due.Rom 13:7
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.Prov 3:27
But really, all praise and thanks goes to the only one who made all this possible. Our magnificent heavenly Father and glorious God must be the focus of all our praise and thanks. He is the source, the power, the purpose, the goal, and the reason for everything we do. Thank you, Father.
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.Rom 11:36

We hope to work out the “bugs” involved in using the building over the next few weeks and will plan an “Open House” in October. We want the Open House to be a special day of thanks to our contractors and other benefactors and a warm hello to our new neighbors.
All of this is lifted up in submission to God’s Will for His purpose and glory.
We dearly hope you can join us.
