At Valley, we encourage people to use gifts and talents within the family as we reach out to our community of Redding, and the world. We choose to be a family that lives by FAITH, lives with HOPE, and lives to LOVE.
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Valley Christian Family great!
What should I wear to church?
Come as you are. Dress casually and comfortably. You'll see people wearing everything from jeans and t-shirts or shorts and flip-flops, to dresses and nice slacks.
What should I be expecting?
Valley has two identical worship services on Sundays at 8:30am and 10:30am. Our worship music style is modern and contemporary, while the message is taught directly from God's Word. In total, a service lasts about an hour and a half. When you first walk into our main foyer, expect to be greeted warmly at the door.
Will I be asked to do anything if I visit?
No. Come as you are. Our atmosphere is causal, relaxed, and friendly. You will be met with a smile and sincere greeting. Our sincere hope is that you'll feel welcome, at home, and among friends.
What's available for my kids?
We offer Sunday School during second service. During our second service, the kids start the morning off with a time of worship in the Fellowship Hall, after which they head off to their individual classes. CLICK HERE for more about info about VALLEY KIDS.
What about junior high and high school?
Both junior high and high school meet as groups duringsecond service on Sundays at 10:30am. The high school worship team leads a time of praise and worship for both groups in the high school classroom. Both groups also meet on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm. For more information CLICK HERE.
How do I get connected at the church?
The best way to get to know people is to spend time with them, and while the time before and after church on Sunday certainly offers opportunities to meet and make new friends, it really takes more than that to get to know someone.
Another great way to get involved is to join a ministry opportunity CLICK HERE for more information.
At Valley, we're all about Jesus. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. We don't care how you're dressed or what candidate you voted for. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable.
The vision of our church is defined by three simple words: REACH, TEACH, and EQUIP. We desire to fulfill the Great Commission by devoting our time and energy to reaching out to our community of Redding and beyond with the love of Jesus Christ.
MOM'S GROUP - Mom's Group connects and encourages moms from all walks through bible study, fun, and fellowship. The group meets on Thursday mornings from 10am-12pm and childcare is provided. For more information contact us here.
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY - Ladies, join us on a journey through the book of Acts in a 9-week Bible study called "Believing Jesus" by Lisa Harper on Thursday mornings at 10am-12pm or Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm. Lisa retraces the revolutionary steps of the early Christians who didn't have much of a road map to follow after Jesus ascended to Heaven, but the Holy Spirit catapulted them forward with so much power that they dramatically changed the world.
