Valley Groups

Valley Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationships with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. Sign up for a Valley Group TODAY (Summer sign-up session currently closed)!!

Mentoring at Valley

Here at Valley, we believe that people move best on their spiritual journey when they travel together in groups that regularly meet, seek God, and love one another. That’s why we offer Small groups and Mentor Relationships for men & women.

A mentor relationship is simply when someone walks alongside you and helps you move closer to Christ. 

We'll pair you with a mentor for a three-month period of time where you'll meet one-on-one every other week; mentoring is a relationship is which one person empowers another for greater personal growth and ministry effectiveness and it's an awesome relational experience!

Leading a Group

Leading a Small Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Small Group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Small Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
