Here at The Valleys Church (formerly theBridge Salem Church), we believe that church isn’t just a place where you go on Sunday, but rather a community of friends meant to love, strengthen, support and inspire one another—just like a family. We believe this so intensely that we literally meet in homes across the Roanoke and New River Valleys. As we meet in "house churches," we build quality relationships through living life together as we eat, pray, worship and hear God’s word. But we do it on couches or around the dinner table...like they did in the book of Acts. Everything we do is purposeful—we’ve learned that these are the kinds of principles that encourage, foster and build relationships that turn into friendships that will last, eternally.
What is a house church? It so just like regular church. Except in a house. And a bit smaller.
