Light of the Valley Lutheran Church started back in 1991 as an exploratory mission. Our first public worship service was held on March 29, 1992. As of today, the church has grown from a handful of families to over 170 members. 
Our Mission Statement
Light of the Valley exists to glorify God by growing in His Word and boldly shining the Light of Jesus to others. We do this as we... 
...confess that Scripture alone — The Bible — is God’s Word alone.
...confess that salvation comes by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus alone.
...grow through joining together for lifelong worship of God and study of His Word.
...share the good news of Jesus throughout this valley and around the world by our Christian lives and words.
