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!

VALLEY KIDS (INFANTS - GRADE 4)

Valley Kids Church

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 when you arrive at church, and we'll get you signed in.
