Simply put, we are a community of people who love Jesus and our neighbors. Our mission is to know Him better and make Him known throughout our community.
Moreover, we aim to bring the Gospel message to life through rich teaching, deep study, personal relationships and intimate discipleship. The Gospel is alive through God’s people and it’s alive through The Valley Church.
What to Expect on Sundays
We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. Service times usually last a little over an hour or so. Children are checked-in when you arrive but older children attend the first part of our worship every Sunday. We love to encourage family worship! Before the sermon starts, children are then dismissed to attend Gospel-rich Bible lessons taught by our fully trained and vetted staff. We serve donuts, bagels and coffee each week, head downstairs to the Fellowship Hall and help yourself 🙂 Oh, and feel free to bring food and drink into the service. Our leaders usually wear jeans and t-shirts, we want everyone to feel comfortable. And finally, as for worship, you’ll enjoy a rich, theological blend of contemporary worship and hymns.
