HELLo

No matter where you have been or what you are going through.

No matter if you are looking for a place to stay or just passing through.

No matter if you come poor or rich, broken or well, hurting

or healed, you are welcome here.

We believe this is the welcome of Jesus.

history

Valley Church was established September 7, 1997 by five families that had a vision to start a church in the Burton, Mich. area. 

We began meeting at Atherton High School 

in Burton, then we moved next door to Valley Christian Academy where we met in the gym for 10 years. 

In 2009, we were blessed to move into the building that is occupied now. God has been gracious in blessing this ministry and continues to work day in and day out.

SUNDAY SERVICE

Sunday services at Valley are aimed at learning something about what it means to be followers of Jesus, making space to encounter the Spirit, and offer glory to God through our lives and actions. A typical service includes instrumental and vocal worship lead by our talented and dedicated worship team, preaching or teaching rooted in the Word, Scripture readings, prayer, and a time of welcome around Jesus' table. We may also take a Sunday to serve together, engaging additional spiritual disciplines, sharing testimony, or trying out new and valuable ways to worship. Our services are streamed live via our You Tube channel at 11 a.m. every Sunday. If you are unable to join us live, the streamed videos are made available to watch at any time. Subscribing to our channel allows you to be notified when we go live or when a video is added.

 

Our nursery is available for ages 0-3 during services and Kids Club, ages 4-11, meets for worship, a lesson, and craft during the sermon.
