    Valley Covenant is a caring church that is fulfilling the New Testament. They teach the Word, care for people's needs and offer a great ministry to the community. I was so blessed to be able to sing with the choir at Christmastime. We moved to Mississippi but I still miss singing with them. We heard a great sermon this morning and it brought memories of the song we sang by the Ball Brothers, It's about the Cross." Thank you for fulfilling a great need in our family.
