A message from the leadership


We are still meeting on-site during normal service times and continuing to operate as we have been.

At VRL, we are a community of both vaccinated and unvaccinated followers of Jesus. We know that many in our church family will still need to wear masks, and we recommend that anyone who is unvaccinated or at-risk continue to practice caution and care by masking and social distancing. The 8am service, or our C1 room, are the best environments for a socially distanced space over the next several months and as always, our outstanding usher team can assist to meet your seating needs. In addition, if you are feeling ill or have been in contact with anyone who is sick, please plan to join us Online for everyone's safety.

For our kids, we are implementing special measures to be extra safe in light of Covid concerns. Each room will have a lower capacity to ensure proper spacing and toys and surfaces will be cleaned frequently and in between services. Additionally, our check-in and out process will be modified to help provide a minimal-touch experience, so please be patient with us as it might add time. Only one parent will be allowed to check in and out their kids. Don't forget we also have an online experience for kids.

If you are not ready and able to join us in person yet, no problem! We will continue to have our services online as well and look forward to seeing you there!
