I'm New Here...
We’re glad you decided to visit our church’s website. Whether you’re curious about a relationship with God or are a Christian who desires to experience God more deeply in your life, you’re important to us because you’re important to God. We’d love to get to know you better.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey and whatever your past or present circumstances, there’s a place for you here at Twin Valley Alliance. We’re certainly not perfect, but you’ll find Twin Valley Alliance Church to be a safe place to explore answers to your spiritual questions as well as a comfortable place where you can discover hope and a loving relationship with God and others. Along the way, you will be able to enjoy meaningful, personal friendships as we grow together in our knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.
Thank you for visiting; take your time, look around, and be sure to contact us with any questions you might have. We’d love to have you join us on a Sunday morning and see for yourself what God is doing here at Twin Valley Alliance Church!
Here are some questions you may have about Twin Valley Alliance.
What are your services like?
During a typical service you’ll experience a mix of worship and teaching that generally lasts about an hour and 15 minutes. Our worship style is a blend of contemporary and traditional, moving between fast-paced, energetic songs, and slower more meditative ones with plenty of room left for the hymns that you grew up with. In the sermon, you will hear practical teaching from the Bible applying the unchanging truth of God’s Word to the circumstances of our daily lives.
What time does your service start?
Our morning worship service begins at 10:15 a.m., but you are also welcome to come for Sunday School, which begins at 9:00 a.m., or our Sunday evening service, which is at 7:00 p.m.
What happens when I visit your church?
First of all, we want you to feel welcome. When you visit Twin Valley Alliance Church, you will not be put on the spot in any way. Whether you are seeking a new church home, or simply desiring to know more about Who Jesus is, you should feel like you are among family.
What should I wear?
When you walk in on a Sunday morning you’ll see everything from shorts and T-shirts to suits and ties. What does that mean for you? It means that you can come as you are. If you’re more comfortable in jeans, wear them! If church doesn’t seem like church if you’re not wearing a tie, then by all means, wear a tie!
What kind of church is this?
Twin Valley Alliance Church is part of a larger family of churches known as the Christian and Missionary Alliance, an evangelical denomination of over 2,000 churches in the U.S. and 20,000 around the world. Our focus is on Jesus, and our great passion is to know Him more fully and to complete His mission to take the good news to our neighborhoods and all over the world. To learn more about the Christian and Missionary Alliance, visit the Alliance website (www.cmalliance.org).
Is there something for everyone in my family?
Yes! Along with our Sunday morning and evening services, we have Sunday School classes for all ages from children through adults, children’s church during morning worship service, and other ministries throughout the week for children, teens, and adults. Check out our Ministries tab for more information.
How do I get involved?
We believe that everyone has gifts and talents that have been given for the purpose of serving others. You will find that there are many opportunities to volunteer at Twin Valley Alliance Church. Getting involved is a great way to meet people and contribute to the mission of this church.
What do you believe about baptism?
We encourage all followers of Jesus to be baptized, and periodically have baptisms as a part of one of our regular services.
We do not practice infant baptism, believing that baptism is for those who have made a conscious decision to put their faith in Christ for salvation. We believe in baptism by immersion because that was Jesus’ model of baptism.
Baptism is not salvation. It is a symbol of the new life that Jesus brings about in the lives of His believers.
How do you practice Communion?
We believe Communion symbolizes the message of the Gospel. The bread and the cup represent the body and blood of Jesus Who was sacrificed on the cross for our sins.
We typically participate in Communion (known as the Lord's Supper or the Eucharist in other faith traditions) on the first Sunday of each month. We invite anyone who has entered the family of God through a relationship with Jesus to participate in Communion with us, no matter their denominational background. We usually distribute the Communion elements of the bread and cup by passing them down the rows where people are seated, though we occasionally utilize other approaches for making the elements available to participants. (And we use gluten-free elements so that no one is kept from participating for that reason.)
Check out We Believe for further information on beliefs and doctrine.
Are you going to ask me for money?
We do take an offering as a part of our worship service. We consider financial giving to the work of the church to be an act of worship, as one of the ways we are invited to partner with God in the amazing work He is doing all around us. We believe that as Christians we are called to generosity. Giving is a sign of spiritual growth and maturity, but it is an act that is ultimately between the giver and God. But we often say (and genuinely mean it) that we have absolutely no expectation that guests would contribute financially when they worship with us.
It is our hope that the worship service would be our gift to you, that you would have an opportunity to encounter God.
You are welcome here.
