Big Valley Grace is a church that values connecting in authentic community, loving and supporting one another as we journey through life. We believe that life is not meant to be lived alone. We also understand that getting connected at a larger church can be difficult. Connect exists to make this process as simple as possible.
One of our goals is connecting people in the community to our church family. When a new person or family comes to Big Valley Grace for the first time, we want them to know we are glad they are here. The volunteers at our Guest Services tables and the Welcome Center help visitors navigate our campus and answer any questions they may have.
There are many opportunities to connect at Big Valley Grace:
The Welcome Center is located in the Lobby of the Worship Center. After each of our Gatherings, someone from our Connect Team is there to welcome you to Big Valley Grace and provide a Welcome Packet to first-time guests.
We’re a big church. “Big” is in our name. At Discovery, you can find out how to connect with others, take a tour of the campus, learn about our core values, and begin the process of membership. Discovery is taught by our Senior Pastor, Rick Countryman.
Many people have attended church all their lives, but have never understood or experienced the blessing and responsibility of church membership. At Big Valley Grace, Discovery is the first step to becoming involved in the life of the local church through church membership.
The Scriptures call each of us to participate as joyous members of His body, not to remain anonymous and disengaged attenders. A commitment to membership in the local body is a way to obey the command given in Hebrews 13:17:
“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.”
Discovery meets the 1st Saturday of most months at 9 a.m. in The Venue. To attend Discovery, please register for 1st Saturday.
