Scripture Reading and Message from the July 1, 2012 service at Valley Ministries MCC featuring Rev Terri Miller.

Valley Ministries is a Christ centered church. We believe that God loves us and desires to have a sustained relationship with us. 1 John 4 tells us that 'God is love.' Love is not just one of God's characteristics, but it is the very nature of God.

This week's Gospel message is from 2 Corinthians 8:7-15:

Now as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our love for you--so we want you to excel also in this generous undertaking. I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others. For you know the generous act of Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. And in this matter I am giving my advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year not only to do something but even to desire to do something now finish doing it, so that your eagerness may be matched by completing it according to your means. For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has--not according to what one does not have. I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. As it is written, "The one who had much did not have too much, and the one who had little did not have too little."
