Students (6th-12th)

6th-12th Grade

Valley Student Ministry


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 place for students (6th -12th grade) to connect with God, with other students, and with older committed leaders.


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:

630-7pm - Hang out time (pool, ping pong, video games, Uno, etc.)

7-715pm - Group Game

715-745pm - Announcements and message time

745-805pm - Small Groups Time (Students break out into age-appropriate small groups. Leaders ask discussion questions to go deeper about the message)

805-830pm - 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.
