What to Expect...

 

On Sunday mornings, our first gathering at 8:30AM is traditional, with a few hymns accompanied by keys & organ, some Scripture readings, and a 30-minute message that we hope will refresh, challenge, and inspire you in your faith.
Our second gathering at 10:30AM is contemporary, meaning we sing newer songs with a full band. The same 30-minute message follows the music. At the end of each gathering, we reflect for a minute on the message and receive an offering that funds ministry here and around the world. (The 8:30 gathering is 60 minutes, and the 10:30 is ~75 minutes long.)

We're pretty sure you'll laugh more than you usually do in church, because although we're serious about Jesus, we don't take ourselves too seriously. Actually, we think people who know Jesus should be the most fun to be around!

In between these gatherings we have Adult classes that meet for 45 minutes (9:45-10:30AM). Anyone is welcome; no need to sign up or attend every session.

Kids are welcome in both gatherings! We do offer childcare for the little ones in our Nursery (ages 4 & under) in both gatherings.
In the 10:30 gathering just after the music, kids ages 4 to 2nd grade can attend Power House- our fun kids ministry that meets downstairs in KidZone. All of our workers are child safety certified and background checked.
If you're visiting for the first time, we try to meet you and give you a gift bag, but we won't make you stand up, wave, or do anything weird. We're just glad to see you and welcome you. (Oh, and we NEVER ask or expect visitors to put money in the offering at the end of the gathering! Your presence is your gift to us.)

About Us

Valley View Chapel (VVC) began in 1977 as a church plant from Long Hill Chapel in Chatham, NJ. VVC began at the Old Farmers Road School here in Long Valley, and then purchased our current site in 1980...this was a major step of faith for a small congregation.  The church quickly grew and needed to add a second service, and a classroom wing which was built and since then we have added on a Family Life Center.  
 
God's blessings have been abundant and exciting.  But these all pale in comparison to the lives God has changed through His work in VVC!  Many people have begun an eternal life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ; many have grown in Him through challenges and trials; and many have grown to be a family, which you are invited to join.
 
We are here to produce fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  Through loving relationships we care for each other, we challenge one another, and we grow together.  We welcome you to check us out.
 
We are not a church that stands on its own.  We are a part of, and accountable to, the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA).

 
OUR MISSION
Leading individuals, through relationships, to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
 
OUR CORE VALUES
 1.     We acknowledge our dependence on God by making prayer our first priority.
2.     God's Word is our source for truth and guidance.
3.     All that we do is permeated by a spirit of worship.
4.     We commit ourselves to nurturing relationships in our families, small groups and our church as a whole.
5.     We realize all we have belongs to God.
6.     We intentionally join God in His pursuit of those that do not Know Him.
7.     We use our particular giftedness to be salt and light in our culture and community.
 
OUR VISION
Valley View Chapel exists to advance Christ’s Kingdom through loving, Spirit-led relationships that glorify God by evangelizing the lost, edifying and equipping the believer, and empowering disciples for service.
