Valley Baptist Church is passionate about connecting with students in order to usher them into a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
While we schedule devoted times of Bible Study, discussion and application, we also believe that some of the richest spiritual conversations happen during those unscheduled times; goofing off in the youth room, around a kitchen table, after a football game or during workouts in the locker room.
3:30 – 6:30 – After school hang out in the youth room. Eat pizza, do homework, play ping pong and make up ridiculous games using various ping pong paddles, pool sticks, and whatever else found laying around.
6:30 – 7:30 – Bible study with Rusty.
10:00 am- 10:50 – Age divided Bible study before Worship. 7-9th grades and 10-12 grades go to separate rooms for an in-depth look at Scripture. Our teachers are devoted and downright fabulous.
5:00 pm – 6:15 – Student Connect Group. Much like adult Connect groups, but we meet in the Youth room. This time focuses on discussing the sermon from the morning Worship service with the intent of helping students internalize and apply the truths to everyday life.

Birth through 6th Grade
We think children should be seen and not heard. Just kidding. We love kids and take seriously the responsibility to show them God’s big, big love and train them in how to love Him back. We offer multiple teaching times for our children, and have caring and devoted (background checked!) leaders.
10:00 am – 10:50 – Age divided Sunday School. From infants to sixth grade, we have a class for your child dedicated to teaching God’s word on an age-appropriate level.
11:20ish – Children’s Church. Just before the sermon, children ages K4-1st grade are invited to Children’s Church. During this time, kids participate Bible teaching, enjoy a snack, and engage in other fun activities while mom and dad listen (distraction free) to the sermon. It’s win-win!
5:00 – 6:15 – Connect Kids. While adults and students are in Connect Groups, our children are engaged in a wonderful time designed just for them called Connect Kids. During Connect Kids, K4-6th graders learn truths from God’s Word in a large group teaching time complete with kids praise and worship. It’s basically a worship service designed with them in mind! Afterward, they divide into small groups to participate in activities, games and discussions intended to reinforce the lesson. Babies, toddlers, and younger preschoolers are cared for by loving workers in the nursery area.
6:30 – 7:30 pm – Game Changers for children 1st-6th grades.
We also plan fun events throughout the year for families to enjoy together such as bowling, zoo trips, pumpkin patch, and putt-putt.
