Big Valley Grace is a Christ-centered church that worships in Spirit and Truth every weekend in multi-generational gatherings. We offer a variety of worship styles to draw all generations and cultures into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

While worship is the primary focus of our Weekend Gatherings, it is just one of the five core values encouraged every weekend.

Before and after each Gathering, people are encouraged to connect with each other in fellowship.  Ministries like Cafe Istoria and On The Patio were created to enhance these moments and encourage people to build authentic relationships with each other.

A major component of Weekend Gatherings are teaching messages.  We devote 45 minutes of our time together to teaching, equipping believers to love and grow in obedience to His Word

Without the hundreds of people who serve each weekend, our Gatherings wouldn’t even be possible.  Regular attenders of Big Valley Grace are encouraged to Attend One + Serve One.

Big Valley Grace Community Church is a big place….it’s even in our name.  Our Worship Center can accommodate up to 1500 people.  We understand that not everyone prefers to be in a crowd this large.

For those who prefer a contemporary yet more intimate setting, we created The Venue.  The Venue features the latest worship music led by various worship leaders accompanied by a band with guitars, bass, drums and keyboards in a room that seats 250 people.  These gatherings also feature an HD live video stream of the message from the Worship Center.

Hearing Impaired

For hearing impaired, we offer a live sign language interpreter at our 11:00am Contemporary Gathering in the Worship Center.

We offer various classes and programs at each of our weekend gatherings for ages birth through 6th grade.

Infants & Toddlers (birth – 35 Months)

Our Infant classrooms are among the most unique places in the church. Between changing diapers, rocking, snacking and playing, there are small windows of opportunity to teach these little ones about the love of God. Our goal is simple. We want each child to feel loved and cared for while their parents enjoy the worship gathering.

Gathering FAQs

No! You can wear whatever you feel most comfortable wearing. Some people wear coats and ties; others wear jeans and t- shirts, and some wear shorts and flip flops.

Maybe! We leave that up to you as the parent to decide whether or not your child may be disruptive to those around you. Our gatherings are designed for adults (which mean they tend to be a bit boring for children). We do offer various Children’s Ministry options at each of our gatherings (for ages birth through 8th grade), which we recommend for your children to learn about God at their level.

No! We do receive an offering at some point in our gatherings because God’s Word tells us to, but you don’t have to give anything unless you want to give.

To learn more about why we take an offering, visit Give.
