Dear Family and Friends of Sudden Valley Community Church,

On November 10th, after our worship service, we held a congregational meeting to vote on the proposal previously described. After a few helpful comments by members, the vote was taken with 17 voting in favor of the proposal and 2 voting against. This means that Sunday, November 17th, will be our last service as a church, and our remaining resources will be distributed to missions and other local churches.

Though the decision to close a church is never easy, there has been an overall sense of unity in coming to this decision. We praise the Lord for all He has done in the last four years, and we look forward to what He has in store for each of us in this next chapter of our lives.

Our desire is to make next Sunday a special and celebratory service. We want to worship together in song, the reading and preaching of the Word, special music, the Lord’s table, and in sharing testimonies of what the Lord has done in and through this local body. We will also have a potluck after the service.

If you have been part of Sudden Valley Community Church at any time in the past, we heartily invite you to join us in celebrating the Lord’s work. Jesus said, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it.” He has kept that promise, and we want to praise Him for the work He has done in building up each of us through the ministry of this local body.

Looking to Jesus,
Gabriel Powell
