Valley Lives its Mission

Open Hearts • Open Minds • Opening Lives To God

Reflecting God’s love in thoughtful, joyful worship • Growing with vision and vitality, remembering the spirit of our heritage • Serving the community with concern for the world • Supporting just and peaceful living • Encouraging faith exploration • Enjoying laughter, music and one another • A Christian place of belonging for all!


What are the services like?
We have two services at 9:00 and 10:30 on Sunday mornings. Both services have a variety of different music. We like to mix things up. Communion is typically served on the first Sunday of the month at both services. Both services are family friendly and include a Children's Sermon. After the children's sermon, children may attend Faith Formation classes led by trusted staff and adult teachers.

What should I do when I arrive?
When you enter the main doors, to the right are the coat room and the stairs going up to the sanctuary, where the services are held. To the left are the restrooms and fellowship hall, where coffee will be brewing. To the left is also the elevator that provides handicapped access to the upper level and the sanctuary.

We are friendly and will probably introduce ourselves to you, but visitors are not specifically called out during the service. After each service, enjoy coffee and donuts, chat with members and our pastors, and take a look around. Take time to view our various sign ups for mission and fellowship opportunities. If you have young children or teens, check out the spaces for them, meet the directors on staff and see what our Christian Education and Youth programs have to offer. Should there be a special brunch or meal that day, please join us for that too.

Are there special accomodations?
In addition to elevators we also provide:
+ a family bathroom on the lower level behind the youth space
+ wheelchair accessible bathrooms on both floors
+ open spaces in some pews that fit wheelchairs and walkers
+ an audio system for the hard of hearing
+ large print bulletins
+ noise blocking headphones for kids (in a box in the lower level coat room)
+ comfortable couches and soft chairs in the Narthex for people who can't sit in pews for long periods
+ snack modifications for children with allergies

What should I wear?
Wear what makes you comfortable. If you like to dress up, then dress up. If you prefer jeans, then that's what you should wear. No matter how you dress, there will likely be plenty of people dressed just as you are.

Are children welcome at Valley?

Absolutely! Children 4th grade and up are encouraged to join you for the entire worship service. Their Faith Formation takes place during youth time on Sunday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. There are Faith Formation classes for children 3 years old through 3rd grade during both worship services following the Children's Sermon. Children are returned to the Sanctuary during the last hymn. Our youngest children can stay in worship and enjoy our Crawlers Zone in the Sanctuary or, if your family chooses, they may go to the nursery, which is professionally staffed. You will find the nursery on the upper level down the hall from the restrooms. 

We have Fellowship Time between worship services in the Fellowship Hall where there are mats and toys for our littlest members. There is also a playground in full view of the Fellowship Hall for use in nice weather.

We look forward to seeing your family!

Can I speak to a pastor?
If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with either of our pastors, just give the office a call at (763) 588-0831. We are always happy to hear from you.

We are part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denomination.

We were officially organized on May 20, 1951 when Golden Valley and the surrounding suburbs were first growing in the post-war building boom.

The original chapel, now the Cornerstone Room, was built in 1952.

The Fellowship Hall was added in 1957.

The current sanctuary was added in 1965.

The Education wing was added in 1988.

The current sanctuary was built with space for an organ which took over 40 years to arrive. Read more about the history of our organ.

Valley Church currently has almost 500 members.

Our neighborhood in Golden Valley is experiencing a resurgence of young families.
