Valley Student Ministries

Our mission at VSM is to help students grow in their desire to be known by God and develop a passion to make God known. We hope is to partner with parents in guiding students with their personal relationship with God by affirming their personal journey and mobilizing their potential so they would become and multiply authentic disciples of Christ.


Weekly Gatherings

Sunday mornings from 10:45am-12:00pm in the Youth Room

During the second hour on Sunday mornings, we host a combined middle school and high school gathering where we provide a space for worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. We review the teaching in the main service in a small group environment that is led by one of our adult volunteers.

Friday nights from 6:30-8:30pm in the WCCC (Church gym)

One Night is a time for students to connect with new friends, play fun games, and explore our faith in Jesus. We believe that it can only take one night to connect with a small group, grow in your relationship with God, and change your life. Our kick-off is on September 14th. We would love to see you there!
