Some questions you may have:
When are your services and what can I expect?
Valley has two identical worship services on Sundays at 8:30am and 10:30am (during the summer, we go to one service at 9:30am). We gather together to sing songs, listen to a message and pray. Our worship music style is modern and contemporary, while the message is taught directly from God's Word. In total, a service lasts about an hour and a half. When you first walk into our main foyer, expect to be greeted warmly at the door. Our sincere hope is that you'll feel welcome, at home and among friends.
What should I wear?
Dress casually and comfortably. You'll see people wearing everything from jeans and t-shirts or shorts and flip-flops, to dresses and nice slacks. Come as you are.
What's available for my kids?
We offer Sunday School during 2nd service only. During 2nd service, the kids start the morning off with a time of worship in the Fellowship Hall, after which they head off to their individual classes.
What about junior high and high school?
Both junior high and high school (Koinonia) meet as groups during second service on Sunday (10:30am). The high school worship team leads a time of praise and worship for both groups in the high school classroom. Both groups also meet on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm.
How do I get to know people and get connected at the church?
The best way to get to know people is to spend time with them, and while the time before and after church on Sunday certainly offers opportunities to meet and make new friends, it really takes more than that to get to know someone. This is why Valley places a special emphasis on home groups. These are smaller groups of people who meet throughout the week in private homes (some meet at the church campus) to build friendships, spend time in the Word, and to encourage and pray for one another.
In addition, there are many different ministries at Valley that offer opportunities to get connected and involved. Everything from Sunday School, Awana and Vacation Bible School, to greeters, deacons, prayer teams, and worship team - - all of these and many more provide opportunites to serve, get connected, and develop lasting relationships.
