You will find a warm welcome waiting for you as you enter our sanctuary on any given Sunday morning. Here's an idea of what to expect when you join us!
ON-SITE at 10:30 am
Or if you are comfortable and well, join us for an onsite worship service at our church building located at 1792 Townley Street. While our current policy recommends masking and maintaining social distancing wherever possible, you should know that most folks at VAC are no longer masking, while some have continued with the practice. You are welcome no matter your approach to masking, but if this affects your comfort level, our online option is available to you.

The main parts of our Sunday services are worship and preaching. Our worship is led by volunteer musicians and features both contemporary and traditional songs, as well as scripture reading and prayers of the people. The preaching is intended to bring to life the teachings of the Bible in a way that will encourage, uplift, and challenge each listener.
If you require hearing assistance, reach out to any of our staff on Sunday morning and we can get you connected with our Audio Fetch account. This connects our sound systmem directly through headphones and a smart device or bluetooth enabled hearing aids so you are better able to hear the music and speakers during the service.
Throughout the year, we have various versions of wonderfully creative programming for kids and youth designed in an age-appropriate way to assist them as they discover who God is and develop a relationship with Him.
During school months, children PreK-Gr 6 are welcome to attend the first 15 minutes of our service. After the second set of songs and during the Prayers of the People, they will be invited by our volunteers to Rainbow Room (Pre-K) or downstairs to Graceland.
During summer months, we host FAMJAM for children ages 2 to completed grade 2. FAMJAM is a relaxed family-style environment with opportunities for kids to play, explore, listen to the stories of our faith, and move their bodies outdoors. Our FAMJAM program will meet in the Graceland area at the usual kids dismissal time. It's helpful if you ensure your children have sunscreen on and, if preferred, a water bottle labelled with their name.
On the odd Sunday we have a family service where children are welcome to join for the whole service. These services usually involve family-friendly content to engage those of all ages.
