VBC Youth's Purpose

Our youth ministry’s focus is to help middle school and high school students develop as dedicated followers of Jesus Christ and provide them with opportunities to engage with each other and their community in a God-honoring way. 


Sunday School
Every Sunday during the 1st Service from 9 – 10:15 am. Focused on learning more about a given subject and diving deep into God's truth. Groups are divided into separate Middle School and High School classes. 

Wednesday Nights
Every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 at the church. Focused on coming together in community, engaging in fun activities and games, studying the Bible, and singing songs led by our student worship band. The night kicks off with Middle and High School students together, and then we split up for the teaching time.

In addition to Sunday School and Youth Group, special events and retreats are also scheduled for students throughout the year.
