What to Expect


It can be very intimidating to visit a church for the very first time.  You might feel unsure about where to go, what to wear, when to be there, and what to expect, among other things.  We want to assure you that when you visit Valley View Baptist Church for the first time, you will find yourself in a friendly, warm and loving environment where you will be welcomed with open arms.  We want you to experience inspired preaching, great worship music, very friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home!" Below are a few answers to some questions you may have about what to expect on your first visit.

What should I wear?

There is not a dress code at Valley View Baptist Church for members or our guests.  You will find many different styles of dress in our church.  Our only request is that whatever you do decide to wear is clean and modest.

Do you have a nursery?

Yes. Nursery is provided during the Sunday worship service for children 5 years of age and under.

What are your services like?

We believe that the preaching and teaching of the word of God is paramount in worship. In addition, we believe that our music reflects our attitude and heart of worship. Valley View Baptist holds traditional worship services.  Our music is a mixture of great hymns of the faith along with newer worship music.  The focus of all of our worship time is honoring our great and awesome God!  We start our service with prayer and announcements, then worship music consisting of several songs, and an offering.  Our pastor or guest speaker will then give an in-depth message from the Bible, and the service typically ends with an invitation.

Am I expected to participate in the offering?

We are always delighted when someone new chooses to worship with us.  It is our hope and prayer that our service will be a gift to you. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.

Other questions?

If you have other questions, please feel free to give us a call and leave a message, or ask someone when you arrive.  Whether you are new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit to Valley View Baptist Church will be exactly what you are looking for!  We will work hard to make sure you feel right at home from the moment you enter our church and are looking forward to meeting you personally.
