We offer three different Sunday worship experiences. The first two are live-streamed online and archived to assist you in worshipping whenever is most convenient for you.
- Our Traditional Worship takes place in the Sanctuary at 9:00 A.M. on Sundays. If you enjoy choral music, hymns, orchestral arrangements, and liturgical reflections, in a sacred environment, this is the service for you! Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month.
- Our Contemporary Worship takes place in Fellowship Hall at 10:00 A.M. on Sundays. If you enjoy worship songs, a live band, and artistic expression in a more relaxed environment, this is the service for you! Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month.
- Our Sunday Suppers gatherings take place on the first Sunday of month (October-May with a break in the summer), from 5:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M. in Fellowship Hall. We begin each month by sharing a family-style meal together, before participating in worship, conversation, and prayer. If you’re looking for an opportunity to connect more deeply in community, with opportunities for all ages, this is the gathering for you.
We offer Children’s Spiritual Formation opportunities for children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade during each of our Sunday morning services. Children will check in before worship in the courtyard, receive their "paper sheep," and go sit with their families in either worship service. They will be dismissed from worship, met by a youth shepherd or staff member, take a moment to wash their hands in the restrooms, and be guided to the upstairs Tree House classroom.
To avoid enclosed space gatherings in the upstairs hallways, children are to be picked up in the outdoor courtyard following worship. (On the first Sunday of each month, children rejoin worship to partake in Communion with their families.) Parents, we ask you to register your child for each new season by filling out a 2022-2023 Participation Form.
On Sunday nights, children and youth have the option of staying with their grown ups or sitting at designated tables for children and youth.
Childcare is offered at both the 9:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. services! From 8:45 A.M. on parents can check in their infants, and pre-schoolers at the Children’s Welcome Table in the courtyard and then bring them to their age-appropriate classroom in the Lower Courtyard. Children should be picked up from their classrooms immediately after the service, 11:15 A.M. latest.
Parents, we ask you to register your child by filling out a 2022-2023 Participation Form. Questions? Please contact our Director of Children's Ministries, Natalie MacMillan.
As you drive down Virginia Road from Huntington, you can park in the Valentine Elementary lot immediately on your left, or drive past the church to park in the church parking lot on your left. You can also park on Virginia Road or Roanoke.
It is our deep desire that it will be! We hold reserved parking on Virginia Road in front of the church, which leads to a low sloping pathway as you walk toward the sanctuary. If you feel like you need additional assistance, we have people stationed at our Welcome and Information Booth, as well as ushers near the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall who will be happy to help you.
Absolutely not. Our Traditional service tends to be more formal, with many people wearing sport coats or dresses, but not everyone. Our Contemporary and Second Sunday services tend to be more casual, with people wearing anything from button down shirts and slacks to jeans and sweaters. There is no dress code—we hope you will wear whatever makes you feel like you.
Congratulations on your plans! As a community church, we are committed to officiating weddings for members and non-members alike.
