We would be honored to have you join us

There are also special events like summer camps, student retreats and the family summit that will help children and parents grow in their relationships with each other and God.

21 DAYS UNITING IN PRAYER

Will you join all of Valley in spending 21 days uniting in prayer? This all-church initiative is also happening in Converge churches around the world in January. For full details, including a PDF of our 60-page Prayer Book, go to our 21 Days page.

 

TUESDAY NIGHT LIFE

Valley is devoted to helping people come alive in Jesus, so "Tuesday Night Life" seemed an appropriate name for our new Tuesday night lineup of events. We’ve improved a few programs, added a group specifically for parents, and provided a time for all of us to spend just a few minutes with Pastor Jay as we do life together. More than 350 people gather each week for Tuesday Night Life -- come check it out at 6:15 p.m.
