Worship at The Vale is an opportunity to come together using our unique talents and gifts to Praise, Go, and Grow in our relationship with Him. Throughout the week, the worship ministry is in constant motion as our worship is every minute of every day. From any time of worship service during the week, to taking lessons in learning how to play your favorite instrument, there are many ways to get involved. We invite you to join us, and experience God's greatness in worship.

Find out more about the worship ministry by visiting the staff tab, or the more tab above.

Worship Times

10:30AM Sundays

This blended style of worship is led by our worship choir, orchestra, band, and praise team. Each service also includes verse-by-verse teaching through the Bible.

5:15PM Sundays

Sunday Evenings are much more informal and intentionally different than our Sunday morning experience. To gain a better understanding of God's Word, our Pastor leads a Question & Answer Bible Study that is appropriate for all ages. See our facebook and twitter page for any changes in time and location. 

If you have any questions about this ministry, we would love to hear from you. You may contact any of our staff members from the staff tab, or you may call the church front office at 972-226-7105.

Worship Creatively

In the Worship Ministry, we believe worship is much more than one hour on Sunday mornings. It is a constant motion of praise throughout our daily lives. Because we believe this, we provide opportunities for artists who like to lead out in worship with their talents. Click here to find out more about our Arts Festivals.
