Valley Kids

Welcome to Valley Kids!

 We are passionate about helping children come to know and follow Jesus! We view our role as twofold:

  • Partnering with parents in growing their child’s faith
  • Reaching out to children who don’t have this training at home

Our Kids ministry has welcoming and fun environments for all ages from Infants through Grade 4. At a weekend class, a weekday kids' clubs, or a special kids event — come and see what we're all about!

YOUR GUIDE TO EVENTS/ACTIVITIES

Valley Kids Church Times

Valley Kids Church is a great way for your child to come to know and follow Jesus! All of our environments, including our new Nursery and Family Room, are sanitized and staffed by trained, background-checked volunteers dedicated to providing an amazing interactive experience for your child.

You don't need to register in advance; just head to the Children's Check-In Desk, located in our nursery area, when you arrive at church, and we'll get you signed in.

Saturday at 5 p.m.: Our Family Room is open for your use. 

Sunday at 9 a.m.: Valley Kids Church for infants-Grade 4.

Sunday at 10:45 a.m.: Valley Kids Church for infants-Grade 4.

Valley Kids Clubs

Our Valley Kids Club is for kids in Grades 1-4.  

Clubs are held every Tuesday from 6:15-7:45 p.m. from September 13, 2022 through May 9, 2023 Valley Kids Club is designed to be a fun outreach where your kids are encouraged to bring their friends. At Valley Kids Club meetings, boys and girls may sing, participate in fun lessons, memorize Scripture, create crafts, hear from interesting speakers, and participate in serving opportunities. All the while, kids will be forming relationships with other kids their age and with godly men and women who serve as role models. It is our hope to see this club facilitate growth in each child's heart to love God and others more each day.

A $35 fee is required at time of registration.

Parent Child Dedications

Parent-Child Dedication is a public declaration that you are willing to raise your child in the ways of the Lord. Dedication is also a time to pray with the congregation ad include them in the spiritual formation of your child. We are happy to offer Parent-Child Dedication this fall. Before parents dedicate a child for the first time, they are required to take a Parent-Child Dedication Class at the church.

Parent-Child Dedication Class will take place on October 16 at 10:45 a.m. in Room 209. To RSVP, email Michele Fitzsimons.        Our Parent-Child Dedications will take place November 12 and 13 at all services

Valley Kids Baptisms

At Valley, we allow kids starting in third grade to get baptized. It is our pleasure to assist parents in determining if your children are ready for this significant step of faith. To do this, we have a two-session class that is required for both the children and a parent to attend. In this class, we review God’s plan for salvation, explain the meaning of baptism and the logistics of the actual baptism day; all to help your children prepare to make this declaration of faith.  We offer these classes, three times a year. If you have a third or fourth grader interested in baptism the next set of classes are:                                                                            October 24 at 4:30 p.m. and November 7 at 4:30 p.m. To register your child email Lois Hales
