Valley Student Ministry
WHO WE ARE
Our Student Ministry at Valley is called VSM- Valley Student Ministry.
Our desire is to see students encounter God, be equipped to have healthy relationships with others, and be an example to the world around them. We are dedicated to providing a fun and safe place for students to be who God created them to be! VSM is a place where YOU CAN BE YOU!
WHAT TO EXPECT
At VSM Friday night gatherings students will experience biblical teaching, games, and community with others as they connect in small groups with adult leaders for discussion and prayer.
Our typical Friday night goes as follows:
6:30-7pm - Hang out time (pool, ping pong, video games, Uno, etc.)
7-7:15pm - Group Game
7:15-7:45pm - Announcements and message time
7:45-8:05pm - Small Groups Time (Students break out into age-appropriate small groups. Leaders ask discussion questions to go deeper about the message)
8:05-8:30pm - Group Activity
Students will learn what it means to follow after Christ, in a safe place to ask questions, and find truth. We exist to help students discover the plans and purpose God has for their lives in an environment that is designed just for them.
For 2024, we are sharing our testimonies.
“Sharing (or giving) a testimony” in Christianity is telling someone else about your relationship with God. Testimonies can bring others to Christ when we share them. It can become a resource that gives others hope, change, courage and deliverance. And most of all it glorifies God. Sharing our testimony is sharing the Gospel because we are sharing a story of God’s hope in our personal lives. Staff & volunteers will be sharing their testimonies. Students will be encouraged to share as well.
High School Hang (9th to 12th grade)
Every other Thursday from 6:30pm to 8pm at Valley Church students gather together to dive deeper with their relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Students are encouraged to cultivate their own relationship with Jesus through worship, dissecting the Word of God and journaling. They are learning to stand firm in their faith while navigating High School.
OUR TYPICAL SUNDAY NIGHT GOES AS FOLLOWS:
6:30-6:45pm - Hang out time (pool, ping pong, video games, Uno, etc.)
6:45-7:10pm - Group Game
