Invitation to Love

Come when my heart is full of grief
Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
Or with the redd’ning cherry.
Come when the year’s first blossom blows,
Come when the summer gleams and glows,
Come with the winter’s drifting snows,
And you are welcome, welcome.
- Paul Laurence Dunbar

To the Couple:

Congratulations! The decision to marry is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Valley Community Presbyterian Church offers a beautiful space for weddings for members. We hope that the information in this brochure will help you to get your marriage off on a sound footing.

It is very important to contact the church office and get the date on the church calendar as quickly as possible. The church Office Administrator will confirm that your wedding date is available with a pastor and then schedule an appointment for the pastor to meet with you.

You will also be given the name and phone number of the Wedding Coordinator of the church who will work with you in developing the plans for your wedding and ensuring that your plans work within church guidelines. 

Some costs are associated with your wedding.

The pastors of Valley Community Presbyterian Church are free to perform same-sex marriages. The use of buildings and grounds for same-sex marriages is permitted.

 

Smith Family

After attending a wedding at Valley and getting to know Pastor Richard and his wife - Jean Ann, we decided to visit on Sunday a few weeks later as we were searching for a new church home. Feeling like kids on the first day of school, we apprehensively shuffled out of the sanctuary following the service and were immediately approached by warm smiling faces. We agreed to partake in the beloved coffee and donut hour where we met more people than we could count. In that moment, we were home!

Everyone at Valley is part of a family. We take care of each others kids, host birthday parties for one another and generally “do life” together. Our community, however, doesn’t just include those of us who sit next to one another on Sundays. There is no shortage of opportunities to make an impact outside the Valley walls.

One more thing worth highlighting is that Valley loves our little worshipers. They are beloved members within the community; they have their own special play space IN the sanctuary, partake in a children’s sermon during Sunday service and have an abundance of programming to learn, grow and just be kids. This place is truly special; I do not know what we would do without Valley.
