Preparing people to meet Jesus is our purpose. Improving our facilities through this building project will give us greater opportunities to do just that.
However, we are not just adding space, we are enhancing and strengthing Valley's five pillars of ministry to serve those currently in our fellowship and those yet to come.
The lower level of this addition will provide more adult Bible study classrooms and new middle and high school activity areas. The renovation of existing facilities will expand the nursery, preschool and children's educational rooms. More room for more people to learn about Jesus.
Growing closer to each other.
Our welcome and fellowship space will be expanded and additional overflow space added as the current worship center is transformed into a multi-purpose room. These enhancements will encourage long and lasting friendships that go beyond the walls of a building.
Expressing our love to God.
Our next phase of building will provide opportunities for the Valley family to flourish for years to come. The 500-seat worship center used for multiple services will allow us to grow to up to 800+ people. Imagine the ripple effect of those people encountering Jesus Christ each week and impacting the world for the glory of God.
Sharing the gospel.
We all know people who need salvation which only comes through our Lord Jesus Christ. A well designed worship and welcome center will provide the facilities and space to host events where family and friends may encounter the gospel.
Expressing God's love to people in tangible ways.
As we worship together, growing closer to God and each other better equips us to join Him in sharing His love with people around us in tangible ways. This is currently happening in several areas. One is through our strong Biblical counseling ministry. Having the facilities suitable to train counselors and engage in counseling is a very important addition. Another vital area is in our Men's and Women's ministry activities. Bible studies and special events are important tools to encourage men and women to embrace their unique God-given talents and roles.
Where are we in the Building Process?
SEPTEMBER 18 - present
Excavation began on September 18, 2019. The plan is to do the excavation, foundation, lower level concrete walls and steel support structure this Fall (2019). This will position us to receive the Builder’s for Christ volunteers beginning in mid-May 2020 to begin the remainder of the construction. These teams will come each week during the summer through mid-August. The completion of the project is anticipated to be late Fall or early Winter of 2020.

We are at the point of needing som organizers and some doers. Please plan to attend! Now is a good time to get involved. This will be time well spent.
