Scottsdale is widely recognized as a well-planned community with a unique environmental consciousness touting an abundance of waterways, Sonoran desert views, attractive landscaped roads, beautiful parks and bike paths throughout the neighborhoods. This is due to the City’s progressive planning approach to creating a unique life-style for residents and businesses. Scottsdale is annually rated among the nation’s most desirable communities to live in, do business in, as well as being a major tourism center.
Valley Fellowship Church currently plans to be a portable church and meet at a location in the central/south Scottsdale area. This area in zip code 85257/85251 is conveniently located near Interstate 10, Loops 101 and 202, and the downtown Scottsdale shopping district. Arizona State University is just 5 minutes away in Tempe. Scottsdale is also less than 15 minutes from other suburban cities including Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, and the central/downtown Phoenix area.
“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.” (Colossians 1:28 NIV)
Our strategy can be found in our vision statement and is based on Colossians 1:28. These four experiences describe what we will do at Valley Fellowship:
Compelling Worship (Weekend Services)
“WE PROCLAIM HIM…”
We want to create a worship experience that will encourage you to admire, respect, and appreciate the presence of God while worshiping Him. It shouldn’t be seen as a duty, a task, or an unpleasant experience: compelling worship should be inspiring, motivational, life giving, and fun! It should be a wonderful and thrilling experience. Our aim is to do our part to make that happen while God does the rest.
Authentic Fellowship (Small Groups)
All of us have some type of small group in our life. It could be our family, a group of peers at the office, or even friends on social media. At Valley Fellowship, our small groups will be designed to help build genuine “authentic” relationships with people just like you, while fostering an environment of growth in our relationships with God and other people. This is a place where you can be yourself.
Vibrant Discipleship (Growth Track)
Through a series of classes that occur each month called Growth Track, you will learn what it takes to grow in your relationship and walk with Christ. This process will teach you to enjoy the best of what life has to offer while fulfilling your God-given destiny. You’ll learn about your strengths, your talents, and your purpose in life, and how God combines them for the best fit in serving others.
You’ll also learn the nuts and bolts of Valley Fellowship Church and how to become a member when you’re ready.
Passionate Ministry (Dream Team)
“PRESENT EVERYONE FULLY MATURE IN CHRIST…”
The Dream Team is our volunteer army of servants empowered to do what they love! God has given each of us a unique set of gifts and passions. The Dream Team is made up of people who have learned or are pursuing what their purpose for living is, and they’ve decided to live it out to the fullest. Whether it’s sharing their musical talent with the worship team, passionately teaching children about God’s word, serving our guests and members as they enter the Valley Fellowship campus, or getting involved in our passion projects: these servants are passionately serving others with energy, emotion, and a love for Christ.
Our goal is bring people closer to God with each experience they encounter through Valley Fellowship Church. You can be a part of this opportunity, and we encourage you to come along with us on this journey.
