We have made it through The Exchange Zone and the baton has officially been passed from Founding Pastors Jeff + Beth Jones to Lead Pastors Eric + Alexa Jones! Yesterday was a beautifully significant day for our church as VFC has transitioned leadership from one generation to the next. God is good, the future is bright, and the best is yet to come!

Legacy Service: The Church I Grew Up In

Jan 23, 2023

The Next 30 Years: The Exchange Zone

Dec 21, 2021

We are in the Exchange Zone? 

On September 5, 2021, Valley Family Church celebrated its 30th Anniversary and on that day, Pastors Jeff and Beth recognized that VFC crossed the first line in The Exchange Zone! 

What is the exchange zone? In track and field, an exchange zone is designated for exchanging the baton during relay races. This is a 20-meter span in which incoming relay runner hands the baton to the next runner on the team. 

In a relay race, as the incoming runner heads to the exchange zone, the second relay runner is building their acceleration, watching the incoming runner approach. Once both runners hit the mark in the exchange zone, the incoming runner slows down as the outgoing runner accelerates. When executed as planned, the rate the baton is traveling never slows. 

What does that have to do with Valley Family Church? Fear not, dear friends! We’re sharing the details and getting you up to speed on what the next leg of...
