Who We Are

Everyone is welcome. Every story matters.

At Bear Valley, we feel that it's our responsibility to clear the way for you to come to church. We want you to be able to experience the great music, encouraging messages, friendly people, and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of Bear Valley. And we know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. Here is a quick look at what you can expect, based on what people see when they visit Bear Valley.

First Contact:
Here at Bear Valley, we'll make sure the first face you see when you approach the church has a smile on it. Whether you need childcare or are looking for a place for your teens, a greeter will be nearby to help you get where you need to go.

The Service:
You'll enjoy upbeat music and practical talks that help you deal with real life issues. We'll even give you a helpful outline with the Bible passages. What you learn on the weekend, you'll be able to use during the week. We want to help you connect with the personal hope and practical help that God can give us.

The Dress:
We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So, dress casually and you'll fit right in.

The Kids:
And, we know that as a parent you need be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn. We've invested a lot to make sure that both of these goals are reached. You'll see that in the areas the children and students meet in, and even more in the volunteers who work with your kids.

The Offering:
The offering is for those who are part of the Bear Valley family. Instead of wanting you to give something, we want you to get something. All we would like you to give us is a green card telling us a little bit about you. We do not make unannounced visits, in fact, we won't visit you at all unless you ask us to!

If it's been a long time since you've been to church, Bear Valley has you in mind! There's already enough you have to think about when you're visiting a church for the first time. We hope that getting some of this stuff out of the way not only encourages you to join us for church, but also helps you to connect with the hope and encouragement that God has for you.
