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 place for students (6th -12th grade) to connect with God, with other students, and with older committed leaders.
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.
There are several key topics we need to walk through with students on a regular basis. One such topic is challenging students to navigate relationships and sexuality in a God-honoring way. The reality is that the world around us is presenting (and even promoting) a message that one is defined by their relational and sexual pursuits. It’s something we HAVE TO be talking about at home and in the church. God, Guys & Girls is a series designed to get the conversations started.
