As you are aware, there are a lot of changes happening in our world because of the Coronavirus. Some of these changes will affect the way we function as a church, and we want to use this page to keep you updated on those changes.
Services at VNC
Our weekend services are now meeting in-person on Sunday mornings! Our online services will continue as they have on Sundays at 9 & 10:45 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. as well as Wednedays at 6:30 p.m., all at VNC Online. See below for a full schedule of VNC Online events.
We know that there are many of you who are eager to attend a service in person, while there are many who are hesitant about reopening, and still others who it will take a while before you’re comfortable being in a large group setting. We are doing all that we can to create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN WORSHIPING AT VNC:
- If you are showing any symptoms of sickness or are in a high-risk group, please stay home and continue to watch online.
- We ask that everyone continue to practice physical distancing, so please refrain from handshakes, hugs, etc.
- In accordance with local and state authorities, we expect people to wear masks while moving throughout the building, but feel free to remove them once seated in the Worship Center.
- Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building.
- Surfaces in high traffic areas are being sanitized throughout Sunday mornings.
- Every other row of chairs has been removed in the Worship Center, and we ask that you please keep three seats apart between families.
- No bulletins or other materials are being handed out.
- Offering baskets are being placed at the exits, rather than passed.
- You will still experience passionate worship.
- You will still experience creative community.
- You will still experience a message of Hope.
For those of you who are hesitant about returning, we hope that the steps we are taking will give you some peace of mind. For those who are not comfortable joining us in person yet, we look forward to having you continue to join us online!

Children's and Student Ministries
Out of an abundance of caution, we have transitioned from Sunday morning ministries for kids to Family Worship Services, until at least the end of the year. This move will be reevaluated at that time. For now, the nursery (birth through two-year-olds) will continue to be available. We also have Clubhouse Online Experiences on Sundays at valponaz.online.church, with preschool running at 8:30 a.m. and noon, and gradeschool at 10:15 a.m. You can also watch the Clubhouse Online Experiences throughout the week by going to valponaz.org/clubhouseonline.
Our Summit Student Ministries are meeting in person, with High School on Sunday nights from 6 to 7:30, and Middle School on Wednesday nights from 6 to 7:30.

Throughout the quarantine, we have been blessed by the generosity of the VNC Tribe. Your gifts of tithes and offerings have helped us to continue ministry during a very difficult time. You can now give during our in-person services (giving baskets will not be passed, but will be placed by the Worship Center doors at the end of the service), and we also encourage you to continue to give online. You can also drop off gifts at the church during our weekly office hours (M-Th, 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.) or non-cash gifts in the dropbox at entrance 1. Thank you again for your generosity!
