We offer four services at TVLC. Each service is about an hour long and includes singing, Bible readings, a sermon, prayers, and communion that is open to all. Each service varies in style, so you can find the one that is a good fit for you.
Guests With Children
Children are welcome at all services! At our 9:15am service, SUNDAY SCHOOL classes are available during the school year for 3-year-olds through fifth-graders. Before they leave for Sunday School, kids are invited to join the pastor for a children’s message. Children’s bulletins and crayons are available on request from the ushers. If your little ones grow restless, there is a cry room located at the back of the sanctuary.
In The Gathering service at 10:30am, there are opportunities for kids to be involved and move during worship, a children’s message, and a special activity time called “Kid Central” during the sermon.
Childcare is available year-round for infants through six-year-olds. The nursery is open from 8:45am – 12:00pm and is located just outside the sanctuary.
Our campus offers accessible parking, walkways, and buildings. Large print bulletins are available on request from the ushers at all services. Songs and texts are shown on video screens. For persons with hearing loss, the sanctuary provides an audio induction loop system.An audio induction loop system transmits an audio signal directly into a hearing aid via a magnetic field, greatly reducing background noise, competing sounds, reverberation and other acoustic distortions that reduce clarity of sound. Headset listening devices are also available on request from the ushers.
This service meets in the sanctuary and offers an informal setting of worship with piano and guitars. The service provides a smaller and more casual setting.
