Valley Kids

Welcome to Valley Kids!

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 5. At a weekend class, a weekday kids' clubs, or a special kids event — come and see what we're all about!

EVENTS & INFORMATION: KIDS

We're excited to be returning to limited in-person Valley Kids Church this fall! But we will continue to offer plenty of resources to assist you in discipling your kids at home, too. Here's the rundown.

Valley Kids Church In Person: 9 a.m. Sundays

During the 9 a.m. Sunday outdoor service, Valley Kids Church for infants-Grade 5 will take place in the building. The classes will run the entirety of the service.

Make sure you sign up for Outdoor Worship at 9 a.m.; then sign up your children at the link below.

Check-in will take place inside the building. Masks are required for kids ages 6 and up; optional for 5 and under. Children 5 and under not wearing masks will have their temperature checked prior to entering the building. We have all the proper COVID-19 precautions in place to ensure the experience is safe as possible for children, teachers, and helpers. We hope to see you!
