Valley Students

Fun and Faith -- Just for Teens!

At Valley, we seek to meet middle school, high school, and college-aged students right where they are and encourage them to grow in their relationship with God. We believe these years are vital to the longevity of a young person's faith. As a result, we want students to worship together, get connected, dig into the Bible, grow in their faith,and lead the way. We are focused on helping parents equip their students to be disciples of Jesus. Scroll down to explore all the exciting opportunities at Valley Students!

Register Today for Riot and Synergy

In person and online beginning Wednesday, September 16, from 7-8:30 p.m. 

Valley Students kicks off fall with Riot (middle school) and Synergy (high school) each Wednesday night. Come to Valley Avon, where we will gather with masks and proper social distancing, or participate online! 

Either way, we're asking you to sign up in advance to help us with our planning.

Sign up for Riot or Synergy

Wednesday Nights: Riot, 7-8:30 p.m.

At Riot, students engage in fun activities and hear Bible teaching relevant to their everyday lives. Students then break into small groups called Huddles, where they become more acquainted with their peers and leaders as they encourage each other in their faith. There will be in-person as well as virtual options. Please register here.

Please wear a mask to Riot.

Wednesday Nights: Synergy, 7-8:30 p.m.

At Synergy, students will enjoy live music by our high school worship band and a relevant message shared by an adult leader. Students will then break into Life Groups, where they become more acquainted with each other and their leaders as they grow together in faith. Please register here.

Please wear a mask to Synergy.

Drive Home

Drive Home is a guide for parents to see what their kids have learned about during Riot and Synergy. Each week, we will post the topic and include questions about the lesson so that you can engage your student in deeper conversation.

Middle School Drive Home for September 16

Break It Down is our first series designed to help our middle school students read, understand, and apply the truths of the Bible to their lives.  The bottom line is this:  The point of the Bible is to get to know God better. This is personal, right?  We’re so excited about our middle school students owning their faith and being ignited in their passion for knowing and following God!

Take time to memorize Psalm 119:105 as a family. Write it down, post it somewhere you can see it, and work to memorize it together. As you do, talk about the importance of keeping God’s Word in your heart so it’s there when you need it.
