Are You Interested In TBC's Ministry ...
Come Worship With Us
Wednesdays And Sundays
And Feel The Difference!
We Getting Ready To
Raise The Roof!
We are moving closer to raising the roof on our new facility across the street from the existing church and school. Plans have been submitted and approved by the Roseville City Council for the construction of a new and improved Church of the Valley, Tabernacle Baptist Church. Pastor Gunter jokingly said in service last Wednesday, "that we are about six to seven years away from our new building!" What is not a joke is that there is going to be a huge new building built across the street and that the tractor work will begin in the 1st or 2nd quarter of 2008. It's never to late, to look toward '08!
Let's all pray that the construction goes well and that the building will be raised real soon. We want to extend our hand of welcome to you all that are looking for a new church or are looking to change from your existing church. We want to grow our congregation in God! Please feel free to visit us on Sundays at either 9:00am, or 10:45am and at 7pm or on Wednesdays for Bible study at 7pm. For further information, please contact the church office at 916.728.5500. May God Bless.
Letter From Pastor
It is my hope and prayer that you take a few minutes and look over the ministry of the Church of the Valley-Tabernacle Baptist Church and Valley Christian Academy. Both of these ministries have the feeling of family; people growing and ministering together as a part of the family of GOD.
If you feel the Lord's leading you to us, I pray that that you come and visit us at either the church and/or the school. We'd love to meet you, show you around, and answer any questions you might have.
When I started Tabernacle Baptist Church many, many years ago, the first sermon I preached was from John 3:16. Today that verse is even more precious than it was then.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
With as much stress, challenges, and pain that life offers today, Christ with His mission of love, compassion, empathy, forgiveness, and deep inner peace, is the only way to lead a balanced life. He bids so fondly to each of us:
"Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I WILL GIVE YOU REST.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Isn't HE AWESOME!
Thanks for your time. His will be done.
Valley Christian Academy's Mission Statement:
Valley Christian Academy provides excellence in education in a nurturing, Christ-centered and grace-oriented environment. Our mission is to challenge, motivate, and inspire students to grow in Christian character and to become equipped to be loving, responsible adults who will have a positive impact upon themselves, their families, their community and our beloved Lord.
Verse: But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen.
II Peter 3:18
Verse: That He would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breath and length and depth and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3: 16-19
VCA Family Service Plan
Time, Talent & Treasure lead to Rewards & Achievement
Valley Christian Academy relies on your help to provide our children with the best education possible. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school do better academically. Fund raising projects provide us an opportunity for teamwork in helping the school reach our goals and objectives as well as an atmosphere for the development of family bonding and camaraderie.
In order to achieve the above purposes and in an effort to keep tuition as low as possible, VCA is announcing a new Family Service Plan wherein every family must assume the responsibility of contributing to Valley Christian Academy Family Service Plan according to both the Financial and Service Hour Commitments.
1. Financial Commitment
Agreement to contribute a minimum of $100 through selling Candy Bars which is our only mandatory fund raiser. ($50 buy-out alternative option.)
2. Service Hour Commitment
Annual agreement to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours (20 hours for single parent families) / 40 hours for families on assisted tuition plans. Each family should account for all service hours performed and submit the total number of hours served to the school office in order to be credited to the family service plan. Service hours may be recorded on the form provided. The final date to submit service hours for the current school year will be April 30, 2009.
The accumulation of service hours will be on a school year basis, from September of the current school year through April of the following school year. Any hours accumulated after April 30 will be applied to the service contract for the following year. Any hours earned after April 30, but before the close of school may be submitted prior to school closing in June.
If a family does not meet the minimum fundraising requirement ($100), the difference will be added to the May tuition bill.
If a family does not meet the minimum service hour requirements (30/40 hours), the difference will be added to the May tuition bill at a rate of $10.00 per hour.
Additional hours does not equate to a reduction in tuition.
