Gathering as a community to worship and refocus our lives around the good news about Jesus is a core value, and essential identity of New Valley Church. The Bible refers to believers as sons and daughters of God. That truth makes us a family ... and families gather. We gather weekly on Sundays to worship through music, teaching, prayer, and sacraments.
When and Where?
We meet at 4pm in the Pioneer Chapel at Central United Methodist Church in central Phoenix. The chapel is located to the south of the main sanctuary and the entrance is off of the main courtyard.

What Should I Wear?
We want you to feel free to come as you are. You'll find that most people dress casually (jeans, t-shirts, shorts) but some prefer to dress up a little more (slacks and collared shirts, dresses or skirts).
What Should I Do With My Kids?
Children ranging from birth through 5th grade are welcome to participate in the New Valley Kids Ministry where they will learn about the gospel in a fun way and in a safe environment (all of our children's workers have undergone background checks and training prior to volunteering). New Valley is proud to use The Gospel Project for our children's curriculum.
What Is A Service Like?
Our services typically run about 75 minutes. People arrive early and stay late to grab refreshments and catch up with friends. We start our services with music and what we like to refer to as a 'Call to Worship' that reminds our community why we're gathered and reinforces our purpose in seeking to follow and worship Christ. We read both ancient and modern confessions of faith and teach sermons out of the Bible in both 'book-based' and 'topical' formats. The sermon is designed to take God's Word, His loving will for our lives, and make it applicable for everyone in ways and terms we can all understand. We respond to the teaching with more singing, regularly celebrating the sacrament of communion, and a benediction or 'good word of blessing' to remind us of who we are and what we're called to in Jesus Christ.
We are led in singing by a worship band, and you can expect a combination of hymns and new worship songs. Recent sermons are found on this site as a podcast.
We hope to see you soon!
