Questions & Answers

Here are some answers to common questions.

At this point, our guests are not required to pre-register for a service. There is a check in desk in the front foyer where we will welcome and greet you. We do keep track of how many people attend our services so your attendance will be recorded.

 

Our services are fairly relaxed and very welcoming. Currently, we meet in the main sanctuary at Knox Presbyterian Church and we also have an overflow room which is in the gymnasium of Knox Presbyterian. We begin each service with some general announcements, followed by worship songs, bible reading, and prayers before the sermon starts. We do participate in communion each week but if you are a seeker or are currently wrestling with unbelief, there is certainly no pressure to partake. As our service starts at 10:00, we are typically finished shortly after 11:00 pm. Afterwards, you are invited to stick around for fellowship or to connect with one of our pastors. 

We welcome everyone and anyone who would like to attend our church service. You don't have to be a believer or a member to worship with us. You don't have to know the lyrics to the songs or understand the bible to come. Just come and be welcomed! 

. We love kids at Grace Valley Church! We currently provide Nursery service for babies 0-36 months and a Grace Kids program (Sunday School) for children aged 3 to grade 5. Grace Kids starts just before the sermon begins (about 30 minutes after the service starts), so your child can participate in musical worship with the rest of the congregation. Do not worry if you have fussy kids, or kids who may want to stay with you during the service, children are welcome to stay at any time. 

A. We have a mix of contemporary worship songs and classic hymns as well. You can check out our Spotify playlist to hear examples of some songs that we typically sing on Sundays. We'll project the lyrics to the songs, as well as text for the bible passages on a screen in front of the church, so don't worry if you don't know the words.
