Thank you to everyone who attended and volunteered for IF:Dodgeville last weekend! We had over 35 women join us for two days of amazing speakers and every one of us felt God move! The stories shared during and after the conference were amazing, and we will continue to see God work as so many connections were made and so many women grew leaps and bounds in their understanding of God’s love and wisdom at this event. It truly is a special weekend!

A special thank you to the men of IF:Dodgeville! Yes, it was a women’s event, but there were many men behind the scenes of this event. We had volunteers help set up, serve lunch, clean up and tear down after the event finished. Every one of them made a difference for the women in attendance and we are grateful!

Volunteers are truly what make Hidden Valley work for God, and definitely volunteers are what make every event HVCC hosts work! Thank you to each of you who served this weekend at IF as well as all of those who serve on Sundays and at other HVCC events. We cannot do what we do without YOU!

Have you ever bought someone a goat?! No? Well, this month you can! For February’s monthly serving focus, we are partnering with World Vision to provide clean water, goats, chickens and medicine to families in third world countries. This is a new opportunity to serve those in need globally. To get involved, simply drop a dollar or your loose change in the money jar at the Information Center on Sunday morning.

Plan to join us for Compass! We will discuss where HVCC is heading and how we’ll get there as we follow Jesus and build His church. The meeting will be held on Sunday, March 3 at 4:00 p.m. All HVCC attenders are welcome to participate.

HVCC’s FREE Family Movie Night is Friday, March 15 at 6:00 p.m. Grab your family and your friends and enjoy free popcorn, cotton candy and beverages. It’s a great family fun night, and we look forward to seeing you! Don’t forget your bean bag chair or favorite blanket!

Save the date for Life in the Valley! On March 24 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. we will be holding Life in the Valley. Whether you are new to HVCC or a long-time attender, this event is designed to tell you who we are and why we do what we do as a church. You will have the option to become a member at the end of the class. Lunch will be served.To sign up to attend, please email Lori at admin@hiddenv.com.

Feel up for a little workout alongside some awesome people? We are looking to add a few people to our Saturday Chair Set-up Team! This team meets at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings to get the gym set up for Sunday services by putting up the stage, chairs and placing a pen on each chair. This is a great volunteer position for families to try out. If you’d like to learn more or sign up to shadow on a Saturday morning, please contact Lori at admin@hiddenv.com.

Leadership Team:  At our Congregational Meeting on February 3rd, the church voted for these four men:  Brian Blanchette, Kevin Campbell, Phil DeKok and Gary Halverson to serve as our Leadership Team for the upcoming year.  Would you please commit to praying for them as they serve?

“Less is more.” “Jumbo shrimp.” Life is full of paradoxes. One of Jesus’ paradoxes is that generosity means gaining, and grasping means losing. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. Children’s programming is available during both services.
