Come join our exciting teen ministry!
Valley Bible Church understands the need for a strong youth group ministry in today’s world. During the teenage years, it is crucial to develop a firm foundation on the Word of God. After all, these are the years when many of our most important decisions are made. It is our vision to equip the teens with the necessary tools from God’s Word to live a life that honors Christ. Our Advance program offers a variety of exciting ministries:
1) During the school year, our youth group (7th grade – 12th grade) meets at 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm on Mondays to have fun, memorize Scripture, and study the Bible together.
2) Every Sunday throughout the year, we meet at 10:00 am to do an in-depth Bible Study geared specifically for teens.
3) We also have special events every month throughout the year, giving our teens opportunities to have fun, fellowship, and encourage one another in different settings.
Don’t worry about feeling out of place. Our Monday youth group is made up of teens that attend several other churches in the area.
The Bible is central in all of our teen ministries. We believe that it is profitable for teaching, admonishing, correcting, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). We like to have fun together, but our primary purpose for gathering together is to glorify our God and learn more about Him.
Our ministries are not a replacement for the parents. God has given parents the primary authority to raise their children in truth, discipline, and instruction. Valley Bible Church desires to support this God-given responsibility by being a resource to the entire family. We seek to be transparent and to encourage the parents to be involved in the teen ministry.
Above all, we want to exalt Jesus Christ above everything, especially ourselves. We want to stay focused on developing ourselves as His disciples. Our theme verse for Advance is Colossians 2:6-7: “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”
This is a passage that beautifully illustrates what our new life in Christ should look like. Serving our Savior is an amazing journey. We would love to see you at any of our teen ministries!
