Christ’s Church of the Valley opens new campus in Scottsdale, Arizona

By Jason Simpson of AZ

Christ’s Church of the Valley draws more than 19,000 people each week to services in Peoria and Surprise, and church leaders say that many of them come from Scottsdale. A new church campus, led by former NFL player Travis Brown, will make their drive much shorter.

The Scottsdale campus has two buildings, including an auditorium that will seat about 750 people. Brown has said that more than 800 people have already expressed an interest in joining the church.

Brown says that the church wants to attract people who may not go to church or who have misconceptions about it. The church’s neighborhood groups, small weekly gatherings based on geographic location, offer opportunities for people to meet their neighbors, talk about the Bible, and get involved in their communities.

Christ’s Church of the Valley is non-denominational. It regularly hosts events where people are encouraged to get to know each other and have fun and provides service projects where people can help improve their neighborhoods.

What to Avoid When Buying a Used Vehicle By Jason Simpson – Arizona

Buying a used vehicle over a new vehicle is an economic choice for many consumers and requires attention to detail to ensure that the choice results in a reliable automobile. Many vehicle history report services are available online, but they may not be all-inclusive. Thus, it is important to inspect potential vehicles carefully on one’s own and with the assistance of a mechanic.

Some vehicles may have evidence of flood damage, particularly in the wake of natural flood disasters. Buyers should ensure that the upholstery is free of dampness and mold, any exposed metal free of rust, and the engine and lights free of water lines. Any sign of the car’s rubber drain plugs or seat-mounting screws having been removed is also indicative of possible flood damage.

According to Forbes, the reliability of certain vehicles may degrade over time. Potential buyers may benefit from researching the usual physical depreciation of specific models, as well as the history of model recalls.
