What To Expect When You Visit

An Engaging Experience with God and Others

Sundays at Valley Gate Church are awesome times of gathering together and engaging with God. Our typical service is about 1 hour and 30 minutes and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. It’s not uncommon to see people chatting or laughing with each other before and after service. Each service includes 15-20 minutes of corporate worship, followed by a welcome, a 30 minute sermon, giving of our tithes and offerings and prayer. Our worship is as diverse as our people. You’ll hear songs by Tasha Cobbs, Elevation Worship, Israel Houghton, to name a few.

Beyond the music, we strive to create an atmosphere that is both welcoming to the Holy Spirit and inviting to those in attendance. During worship, you may see people lifting their hands or clapping as they sing; this is just Our time of worship is truly a moment to connect with God through song. Our aim is to create a Sunday experience that allows you to connect with God and others.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Valley Gate Church.
