Butter Valley Community Church is a vibrant and active fellowship established as Hereford Mennonite Church over 250 years ago as one of the first churches in the area. God is active and real in the lives of our members and God’s Spirit has brought them together into a unique, warm and authentic family. Our passion is to serve Christ in our community and to reach out to the world by connecting people to God and to each other.
A Message From The Pastor
|Dear Church Family, 2/25/21|
Isaiah 25:9 “In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’”
The Adult Sunday School Class is going to move downstairs this week in order to have more room. They will meet in the Old Fellowship Hall. The Young Adult class will move upstairs to the Old Preschool Room. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Volleyball for anyone in the church will be held on Sunday, February 28, after church until around 1:45 pm.
A Membership/Get to Know Butter Valley Church Class will be held on Sunday, February 28, from 2:00-4:00 pm in the New Fellowship Hall. Anyone is invited.
Next Sunday, March 7, will be a communion service. Please be prepared to participate from home if you are joining us virtually.
The church is switching our online giving platforms to Stripe. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there are a number of reasons why we have made this choice. This platform is part of our new church-wide online system, and it will save money. If you are currently using online giving, we are asking you to switch over to Stripe by April 4 at the latest.
Online giving is available at www.buttervalleycc.org under the drop-down menu “Resources.” You can also mail checks to the church office at BVCC, PO Box 97, Bally, PA, 19503. We currently have the opportunity to give online or in-person toward Medical Debt Relief for area people in need. Benevolence funds are available for those in financial need. Thank you for your faithful giving. Reminder that our project to relieve medical debt as a blessing to those in financial need runs until the last Sunday in March.
Opportunities to Gather
We have our Sunday School classes at 9 am. The Adult Class on the book of Zechariah will be available through Zoom at https://zoom.us/j/952322995. We apologize to anyone who was not allowed entry to the class last week. It was an oversight, and we have someone to watch the waiting room so that does not happen again. It can also be watched later on the church website or YouTube page. We also apologize that through a technical error last week’s lesson was not recorded and will not be available for viewing.
We will have one church service at 10:15 am. The Sanctuary will be open for those electing to have a service where masks are optional when seated, and the New Fellowship Hall will be open for those wearing masks for the entire service. Our Livestreamed Worship Service will begin at 10:15 am. The message this week from Isaiah 25 is entitled “Finding a Refuge.” The service will be livestreamed through Zoom. Simply use this link: https://zoom.us/j/96066917436 Later in the day, it will be posted on the church YouTube page, Facebook page, and on the church website.
