About Us

Valley Simsbury is a faith community that gathers in different locations at different times using a “missional community” model. Practically speaking, we gather to worship as a whole on the first Sunday of each month, 10:30 a.m., at Eno Hall in Simsbury. On other weekends, we meet in smaller groups, called Missional Communities, to learn more about God and grow into families that care for one another and live with a focus on blessing our neighbors and towns. Missional Communities thrive in an environment of 40-60 people who hear relevant teaching and then engage in table group discussions. The meeting often includes worship singing and sharing a meal. These gatherings are ideal for people who are curious about faith or who have been engaged in with Jesus for years.  If you are interested in joining a Missional Community, or dialoguing more about Valley Simsbury, please email us!

Our Priorities

I- Life Together

The Christian life was never meant to live alone. As God's children, we are brothers and sisters who gather together for real-life care and connection, discipleship, biblical teaching, and to worship and celebrate the goodness and Glory of God. 

We believe that we can do more together than apart. We believe that church is people more than place. We believe that our worship together prepares us for a life of worship when apart.

In shifting times, we remain rooted in the eternal truths of God, the Gospel, and the church found in the Scriptures. These truths never change, but the places we gather together and disciple one another do. We need to position ourselves to reach those far from God with the grace and mercy of God. 

 

II- On Mission

We're called to live with a missionary mindset in the natural rhythms of everyday life. Since many people have no intention of going to church, we represent the church where they are. 

At Valley Simsbury, we build meaningful friendships with people far from God, and we walk with people in the everyday issues and questions of life. This provides our best opportunity to share the Gospel as we live the great commission in the spaces people work, live, and play.

We celebrate community involvement, neighborhood friendships, serving in town organizations, and building workplace relationships. We design evangelistic and discipleship environments in homes or in spaces well-known to the unchurched, and we plan our worship gatherings with the unchurched in mind. 

 

III- For God's Glory

God is unmatched in all of history, and Jesus incarnate perfectly revealed the goodness and glory of God. For this reason, there is no one greater who we can know, and no one more important for us to point people to. Our power for mission and life comes from the Holy Spirit, for no one else has the power to transform lives or raise people from the dead.

We elevate Him to the highest place in our lives and we live to put Him on display by worshipping Him and Him alone.
