Outreach & Missions
VFC is involved in all kinds of outreach around the world!
At Valley Family Church, we believe the old adage that "the church that shines the farthest, shines the brightest at home," and that's why we have been faithful supporters of missions works around the world since the inception of the church.
Missions Trips: Each year, we offer one or more missions trip for VFC'ers to participate in. Our missions work has included trips to: Haiti, Guatamala, Africa, Appalachian Mountains and New Mexico Indian Reservations. VFC has sent action teams to aid in disaster relief New Orleans, New Jersey, as well as locally when emergency needs arise.
Haiti Orphanage: In 2013 VFC adopted an orphange in Haiti called Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou. Through VFC's support, the children receive 3 meals a day and have updated facilities. Trips are taken a couple times each year to share the love of Jesus, and do any manual labor needed to maintain and improve their facilities.
Love Week: Every year VFC’ers dedicate one week to sowing thousands of volunteer hours into the many organizations, non-profit groups, city projects and other community needs. We paint buildings, clean up parks, wash police cars, plant gardens, mow lawns and more. This week-long initiative is a way for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus to Southwest Michigan.
Car Giveaways: Through the generosity of VFC'ers who have donated vehicles and repaired vehicles, we've had the privilege to give away 15 vehicles to date.
Valley Thrift Store: The Valley Thrift Store is an outreach of Valley Family Church offering affordable, gently used clothing, household goods and more to everyone. This outreach is run completely by donations, and all proceeds from the Valley Thrift Store help to fund Friday Groceries and other outreach ministries of Valley Family Church.
FridayGroceries Food Pantry: The Friday Groceries Food Pantry is an outreach of Valley Family Church, located at 2500 Vincent Ave in the Cathedral Campus. Each Friday from 10am-Noon, we distribute free supplemental groceries to hundreds of families in need in our community. Read more.
Missionaries, Ministries and Non-Profit Organizations: We believe in supporting world missions and those who are taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.
