Your First Visit

Visiting a new church can make you nervous, can’t it? You’re not sure where to go, and don’t know anyone yet. But good news: We all used to be first-time guests, too! And once the coronavirus restrictions are lifted, please come visit us in person. Find out What to Expect When You Visit.

A Note From Pastor Shane:

Thanks for visiting our website. We’d love to have you visit our church, as well, both online and at our outdoor/in-person worship service! You’ll find that our church is purposely different for several reasons. I’ll share two of them now.

First, we are purposely different in that we are thrilled to be Seventh-day Adventist Christians. Seventh-day Adventists have much in common with other Protestant churches, and we joyfully cherish those similarities. But we also have some key differences that we think you’ll find profoundly attractive. Click on the “Media” and “Study” tabs above to find out more!

Second, we are passionate about being a truly cross-generational Christian community. All generations are welcome on our campus, and young and old and all those in between work together here to know Jesus better and to make Him known. With all generations represented – including more than 300 young people under the age of 19 during the school year – our congregation truly is unlike any other in the Shenandoah Valley.

Come and join us! You, too, can be a part of our unique, cross-generational family!

Dr. Shane Anderson,
Senior Pastor
