Due to the current COVID situation, we will not be offering the nursery or children's church during Sunday services until further notice. We invite you and your children to join us in the sanctuary. We have age-appropriate toys and coloring pages available for parents to pick up in the lobby on your way in.
Children's Ministry Director:
At Valley Bible Fellowship we believe you are never too young to begin developing a relationship with our creator God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, and grow in the power of the Holy Spirit. Background checked church volunteers lead a Sunday School program during the sermon portion of our weekly service for children from birth through 6th grade. Children are cared for and encouraged to use their creativity, imagination, playfulness, and critical thinking in class. We engage Bible stories that stress the incredible truth that we can all be saved by the sacrifice of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve God at any age, wherever we may be. It is an honor and a joy to encourage the youth of our congregation in their spiritual development; we hope you'll join us on the journey.
The curriculum we use is the Gospel Project. which takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything.
