I'm New

Welcome

Valley Chapel is a place where you can see God at work in and through the community. We love to serve the people around us, grow in maturity as believers, and share the hope we have been given with others. Visiting a new group like this can feel intimidating though, so this page is here to help you "sort-of visit" before you visit.

What To Expect (In Person)

Coming In

The Service

CONNECTING 

We have a nice big parking lot, you you should have no problem finding a spot.  Our friendly greeters will meet you at the door and hold it open for you. Once you come in, if you have any questions then feel free to find an usher (they will have nametags) and they will be happy to help you out.

We ask everyone who attends to "check-in" at the Connect Center (don't worry, you can't miss it). This started as a means of contract tracing during the COVID-19 pandemic and it's proven to be a helpful way to stay in touch with one another as a community, so we kept it going. Our team is friendly and excited to meet you!
A typical service will last about 60 minutes. There will be intentionally chosen songs, scripture readings, prayers, media, and a sermon that all help us enter into a great conversation with God.

The worship service isn't something we just sit back and watch, it's something we all have a role to play in. Don't worry thought, you won't need to know any secret moves. When we all do something at the same time the folks up front will give clear instructions or there will be instructions projected on the screen. 

Our App

The #1 Best way to get connected here is through our App. Not only does it include our past sermons, self-guided classes, small group signups, upcoming events, and online giving, but it also has in-app messaging so you can start chatting with the folks you meet at church and push notifications to stay up to speed on all our weekly highlights and special announcements. Bonus, it's totally free on Google Play and the App Store
As a guest, we would love to give you a small gift that you can simply pick up at the connect center. It's our way of saying thanks for joining us. While you're there you can find a whole host of printed materials about the different happenings at church. Our Hospitality Team volunteers would also be thrilled to show you around and answer any question you may have. 

Giving

Please feel no obligation to give. Simply enjoy participating in worship with us. Sharing the resources God has blessed us with is one of our favorite ways to worship, so we talk about it each week. If decide you would like to give something, you can do so in locked giving boxes at the rear of the sanctuary or right here on the website 

Special Sundays

On the 1st and 5th Sunday of the month our Children join us for the main worship service  instead of going to the "Valley Chapel Kidz" program. On the 1st Sunday, they join so they can participate in communion with the whole church and on 5th Sunday they help to lead the service. These Sundays will often also include a special sermon just for the children.

Children

On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month, Kids ages 2-5th grade are invited to join the rest of our children in the toddler nursery (2-4yo) or the Valley Chapel Kidz program (5yo-5th grade). Both provide meaningful ways for Children to experience the Love of Jesus in their own age-appropriate way. The Children's wing is a secured zone of the church and all of our volunteers receive background checks and thorough training. You will be asked to register your kiddos and check them in. They will not be released to anyone but the adult who checked them in.

While NY remains a "High Community Transmission" rate for COVID-19, everyone who enters the children's wing (children, parents, and volunteers) will be required to keep a mask on while indoors and unable to maintain 6ft of distance.

If you have a baby, our infant nursery is available with a changing table, rocking chair, fully stocked with diapers and wipes and a live video feed of the service will be playing. We love the life-giving sound of babies in the sanctuary, but we also know how stressful it can be for parents. Simply head toward the children's wing and an usher will help you find the nursery.
