The Clayton Center at Pellissippi State

Our new community center is currently under construction on our property located on Hardin Valley Road. Until it is completed we are meeting right down the street at Pellissippi State's theater at The Clayton Center. The easiest way to find The Clayton Center is to turn on Performing Arts Way just off Hardin Valley Road. We have signs at this turn and along the way to help guide you. Parking areas are marked as well.

Entering The Clayton Center

When you enter The Clayton Center....


If you have children from newborn- 5th grade, please go straight down the stairs to register your children for our nursery or children's ministry rooms.


We offer 3 children's ministry areas:

  • Infants/Toddlers (birth to 2 years of age)
  • Preschool (3 years old to 5 years old)
  • Elementary (Kindergarten to 5th grade)


Our middle and high school kids worship with us in the theater. Click here for more middle school information.


If you do not children in the categories above, you will take a right turn when you enter The Clayton Center and travel down the ramp to check-in and register. From either registration check-in, our volunteers will guide you to our worship space.

Our Worship Space - The Clayton Center

The theater at The Clayton Center is a beautiful space that holds up to 400 people. The layout of the space motivates most to sit "stage right." If that is the case, our worship host will introduce "The Electric Slide" to balance the room and creates space for late arrivals.

The Actual Worship Experience

Valley Church's service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the Valley Church Band leading the church in music. The song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, Pastor John Gargis will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
