Regathering

AT VALLEY CHURCH

We are now offering several IN-PERSON options in addition to our online options. Choose whatever is best for you and your household!

WORSHIP IN-PERSON ON THE VALLEY CHURCH CAMPUS

We are now offering several contact-free worship gatherings on our church campus for any who wish to join us. There will be many live preaching options as well as options with live worship and video teaching. You can select an outdoor tent venue or a more laid back family service.

Our on-site venues are offered at staggered times and are each limited in the numbers of attenders. This helps to maintain safe social distancing standards. In-person worship gatherings does require signing up in advance. Please keep reading below to learn more!

REMINDERS:
  • Each service will still maintain social distancing.
  • Service times and locations are staggered, and each service is identical.
  • Attention Parents: We also have a venue specifically for families at 10 am. This option allows families to sit at tables and enjoy worship and teaching together. Worship bags, breakfast, and special table activities for kids are only available at this venue.

Phase 1 Regathering FAQ

Will online church still be an option?

Yes! We recognize that all of us have different perspectives, different needs, and different levels of comfort. And that’s ok! We will continue to offer the same high-quality online worship experience each weekend. Furthermore, if you fall into a high-risk category, we encourage you to stay home and continue worshipping with us online. We look forward to serving you in this way.

Should we wear masks?

Masks are available for any attender, volunteer, and staff person who’d like to wear one. Please continue to to maintain social distance. We’re all in this together…just six feet apart!

Will there be options for my children and students?

All our worship gatherings are family friendly. However, nursery, children’s ministry, and student ministries will not be offered at this time. We do have a family service offered at 10 am!

Our children’s ministry and student ministries will continue online.

Are we still social distancing?

Absolutely! Your safety is our priority! All our venues maintain social distancing standards while still allowing families to sit together.

How are the venues being cleaned?

We have greatly enhanced our cleaning to prevent the spread of disease-causing pathogens.  An infection-control company has applied their Science-Proven Microbial Control® treatment on common touchpoints throughout the church. Their EPA-registered antimicrobial surface protectant attracts microbes and destroys them by piercing the cell walls. In addition to this treatment, all venues will be thoroughly disinfected in between each worship gathering.
