on an as-needed basis.

center with food, support, and help with projects.

professional services to victims of violent crimes. It also

Ministries - McCurdy is a project of the General Board
of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church and
receives support in many ways from Valley View UMC. McCurdy

- was started by the United Methodist Women as part of a
national quilt project called "Prayers and Squares." They
make hand made quilts and present them to newborns, as well
as ill children and adults.
Packs of Food-- are backpacks with imperishable food
provided each week during the school year for elementary
children who would have no food to eat on the weekends.
These backpacks go to students in schools in Northern
New Mexico communities. This year Valley View is providing
85 snack packs a week. This program has been a great success
because of all the help from the members.
Scholarships - there are two scholarship funds supported
by the members of our church--the Don Winchell scholarship
and the Educational Scholarship.
for Ministries - there is a five gallon jar in which
members put all the pennies they have received. This money/gift
certificates are personally taken to street people in the
Street Ministry serves the homeless and marginalized
of the Espanola area. Espanola
is a city with a variety of issues that lead to dysfunctional
families. These factors contribute to the problem
the Espanola Street Ministry seeks to address by working
one-on-one with the homeless and the marginalized.
Volunteers seek to establish rapport, to identify the individualís
most pressing need, and then to jointly determine how that
need might be fully or partially met.
