THESE ARE THE RHYTHMS AND PRACTICES THAT HELP us serve in mission SO THAT WE CAN BE GOOD NEIGHBORS FOR a change.

serving in ministry

God is changing lives every week at Valley and behind every changed life are the faces of our volunteers. Whether it's helping guests find a parking spot, teaching a child, operating tech, greeting someone at the door, leading a group, taking pictures, or praying for others, we're all called to make a difference...for a Change.

the diaper ministry

Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, we give away free diapers and wipes to families who need a little extra love and support for their infants. We typically give away about 20,000 - 30,000 diapers each year. The Diaper Ministry runs 100% on donated diapers and wipes. (Diaper/wipes donations can be dropped off to the church on Monday's and Wednesday's from 9am - Noon or put in the Diaper Ministry pack-n-play at church on Sunday mornings.)


The Diaper Ministry is open to the public on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month from 10-11 am. No registration is required. A short form will be filled out on arrival - please bring your EBT and/or Medicaid card along if you have one (although it is not a requirement).  You'll receive a pack of diapers and a pack of wipes. We also have volunteers available to chat if you need a listening ear, or advice on other help available in the area. We are always ready & willing to pray for you too!

kids hope

We partner with Kids Hope at Oakwood Elementary in Allendale. Each week, during the school year, each of our awesome mentors spend one hour a week with one student who needs a little extra love and support. They eat lunch together, read, help with homework, and have some fun together. Research shows that by helping a child feel loved and valued, the child can learn better, grow, and succeed.

meals on mission

Do you know someone in the community who needs a little extra love and hope right now in the form of a great meal? We are partnering with Dinner Girl (a meal prep service and professional caterer in Hudsonville, MI) to put love and good food into people’s lives.


If you know a friend, co-worker, neighbor, family member, or someone else who’s going through a challenging time let us know by nominating them to receive a professionally prepared, and crazy delicious FREE meal delivered right to their home. No strings attached.


Follow this link, nominate someone, and most weeks we’ll select one household to share some Meals on Mission.

mission trips

Each year, our Unleased (youth group) Students and our College Students plan mission trips. Our college students will typically go during Spring Break, and our middle and high school students will travel in the summer.  Occasionally we plan an Adult or Family mission trip opportunity too.  We also host yearly fall or spring weekend retreats.  

If you are interested in attending or volunteering to help with a Mission opportunity email us at ValleyOffice@valleychurchallendale.org
