• The Valley Church

    Everyone is formed by something – culture, career, relationships, but above all other things, we choose to be formed by the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.

    Our vision in the Valley Church is to BE WITH JESUS, SO THAT WE CAN BECOME LIKE JESUS, AND THEN DO WHAT JESUS DID.

The idea of rest sounds wonderful, but in reality, rest is a radical, countercultural act of resistance to the powers and principalities of a world at war with God and his kingdom of peace. To practice Sabbath is to draw a line in the sand against all external (and internal) forces that would encroach upon your apprenticeship to Jesus and formation into his image. It’s to say, “This far you shall go, but no further.” It is to defy some of the most powerful forces known to humanity as an act of non-cooperation done in love for community, for the poor, for the earth, and ultimately for God himself.

The Sabbath Series | Stop

When we live in alignment with this ancient, primal rhythm, as Jesus did, we find what Jesus called “rest for our souls.” But when we fight or chafe against or attempt to outsmart this innate, bodily cadence, we fracture our soul’s wholeness into a million pieces. Exhaustion, confusion, alienation from God and others, harm to the earth and the poor, and even spiritual death are all the toxic waste of life without the Sabbath.
