Visiting COV and/or LBC for the first time?

When you visit COV, expect a warm welcome from a host of new friends. It doesn’t matter which of our three Sunday worship services you attend, you will be greeted with kind words and bright smiles.

10:30 A.M. Worship Service at Church of the Valley is an amazing worship experience for all ages. The service features both contemporary and traditional music, relevant messages, and great fellowship every week. We also offer an adult bible study at 9:15 A.M. Children and youth join in the worship service every Sunday, and after 15 minutes in the larger service, children go to Sunday School in the children’s center. We also offer a beautiful nursery with a full-time staff available to care for your little one!

The Little Brown Church

We also offer worship services at the historic Little Brown Church on Sunday at 8:00am AND 5:00pm. The services are informal and last about an hour. Members and friends linger afterwards to visit and catch up while enjoying refreshments. The Little Brown Church is located at Coldwater Canyon and Moorpark in Studio City.

The one thing all our services have in common, however, is the joy that comes with celebrating our faith with one another. In both services, we share the Communion meal as part of worship. Again, we are ONE congregation with TWO convenient locations and THREE times of worship. We hope you’ll join us for worship this Sunday!

What can I expect as part of the worship experience?

Even though COV has a variety of worship opportunities on Sunday morning, the services share several things in common:

Prayer

We collect prayer request cards (called, “Care and Concerns Cards”) from the congregation and read them before we offer our prayers to God. At the 10:30 AM service in Van Nuys, we invite those who are able to come forward to kneel as we commune with God. We do this as a sign of the high value we place on prayer during our worship service.   Also during each of our three services, we pray the Lord’s Prayer (“debts” version).

COMMUNION MEAL (Lord's Supper)

All people of faith are invited to participate in the Communion Meal at COV. At each service, we eat the bread individually as it is passed to us. We hold the cup, however, and drink it together as a group. To accommodate the widest possible number of people, we use grape juice instead of wine.

Offerings

Like all churches, we believe that supporting the ongoing ministries of the church is a part of authentic worship. Unlike many churches, however, we do not pass a collection plate during our worship services at COV. Instead, “Offering Boxes” are located at each of the Sanctuary doors. We encourage our members and friends to place their gifts in one of these boxes prior to the service, during the greeting time, or at the conclusion of worship. Of course, all gifts are tax-deductible.

Family

Our family welcomes you and your family to Church of the Valley and the Little Brown Church! We have something for each member of your family. As you explore our website, you can learn more about educational and spiritual events, our multifaceted music program, the children & youth groups, and a variety of other opportunities for ministry. Also, the COV Developmental Preschool is a ministry of Church of the Valley and is a non-sectarian, interfaith community preschool open to all children and families.

We have something for kids, teens, and adults in every stage of life. From Adult Sunday School classes to camping retreats for kids and teen, our church is a diverse and intergenerational community of faith. We are committed to serving God and our neighbors, which is why we value building relationships within our congregation and community. Check out our many fellowship groups along with our monthly luncheons, gatherings, and events! There is something for everyone at Church of the Valley and the Little Brown Church!

Come Visit!

We hope this gives you a personal and friendly “first look” at COV, but we realize that this is just a web site. The best way for you to find out all there is for your family is to visit us this Sunday.

We look forward to meeting you!
