Annual Belle Valley Rummage Sale will be held 5/17 (8am – 4pm) and 5/18 (8am – 2pm). START SAVING YOUR TREASURES!
We need your help with this annual sale and fundraiser for our church’s ministry! All donations can be brought to the church Monday, 5/13 through Wednesday, 5/15 from 12 – 4pm and 6-8pm for set-up. Volunteers are needed these days to help put things out on the tables. We ask that no donations be brought on Thursday so that we can make sure everything is priced and ready to go for Friday. We will need all donated baked good items to the church by Thursday evening so that they can be priced and ready to go! We will finally need volunteers during the sale to keep the tables neatly organized, to periodically refold and stack clothes, to help answer customers questions or to help carry items to their vehicles. All large items (furniture, appliances, lawn & garden etc.) can be placed under the pavilion. Those who come to help with the sale, especially on Friday morning, please enter through the rear side entrance into the fellowship hall, since customers start lining up at the front doors very early before we open. Any questions call Kim Ragen (392-5831) or Rita Postlewaite (899-7305). Sign-up sheets for bake goods and volunteers will be in the foyer.
Tuesday’s Adult Bible Study Group: We join in fellowship and study opportunities each week. Our first week (1st Tuesday of month, 10:30am) we meet at Harborcreek Perkins Restaurant, and then we gather each week afterwards on Tuesdays at 10am at the church office. We always have coffee and donuts, a time of prayer and then a discussion of a recent Christian fiction book or book of the Bible. We are studying the Old Testament book of Daniel. Come explore this fascinating story and its implications for our faith!
Pub Theology! Join us monthly at Coach’s Sports Bar (downstairs area) where no faith/religion questions are out of place, and all doubts are heard and respected! Bring a friend…I double dog dare you! If we’ll commit to ask just one person to come with us, we’ll fill that room! Come with open minds, open ears, honest hearts, and doubting guests who seek genuine faith.

Belle Valley Group’s AA Meetings are held weekly on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM
Please see our NEWS & EVENTS Page for Weekly Meeting Events
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other; that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A.membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
A call to all recycling volunteers: we will meet to do newspaper recycling this Sat. 4/13/2019 @ 8am by the open trailer at the western edge of the church property. We will be moving the newspaper into large box containers on pallets in a large truck. It is simple work requiring a little elbow grease. We usually only require about 90 minutes of time if we have enough volunteers. There will be coffee and donuts, so please come for some good fellowship, and a chance to serve side by side.
Good Friday Men’s Communion Breakfast – 6:30am; April 19, 2019 @ Belle Valley Presbyterian Church—join in the fellowship and sacredness of beginning this Holy Weekend with a special focus. We’ll enjoy a catered breakfast buffet ($12/each), and a brief devotion with communion. This event is open to the entire Erie area! RSVP to Dave Edmunds (814-397-1861, firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, 4/15/2019
12:15 pm Easter Day at Belle Valley Church, weather permitting
All children are welcome!! Use this as an opportunity to invite friends, co-workers, neighbors to our 11am Service of the Resurrection and share that all kids can stay a few minutes after worship to hunt for treat-filled eggs (we will also be handing out kids meal vouchers from Texas Roadhouse for the holiday). If you’d like to donate a bag of smallest sized chocolate candy and hard candies (like Jolly Ranchers), please bring it with you to church this Sunday, 4/14/2019, morning for worship so we can prepare the eggs for the hunt. You can just leave those candy donations on the foyer table to the left when you enter our facility.
Passover Seder Experience (thru the Eyes of Jesus), Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 6pm at Belle Valley Church.
The Seder is what is observed by the Jewish community at Passover (the commemoration of the celebration of God’s presence and direction of the Jews from Egyptian slavery to the Promised Land). It is a very specific meal (symbolizing the details of the Exodus from Egypt into the Promised Land). It includes elements of worship as well. But our Seder also celebrates how Jesus meets the requirements for the Promised Messiah of the Old Testament as we look at how the symbols of the Seder are fulfilled in Christ as well. We had a wonderful time last year when we celebrated it for the first time in our fellowship hall. The meal is without cost, but we would like to have your RSVP into Clay & Kristin Woodring by this Thursday 4/11/2019 so they can plan enough food for the meal. Their contact #s are: 572-0743 (Clay) and 572-5463 (Kristin). Please plan to join us and prepare your hearts for Holy Week. If you’d like to donate a food item for the meal, simply ask the Woodrings what they are still in need of.
