STUDENT MINISTRY

 

 

 

 

 

Students in grades 6-12: We welcome you! When Jesus did ministry, He understood and accepted people for who they were, and we accept you for the person you are. At VPC Student Ministry, we design our programs to meet you where you are. Contact us anytime, our doors are always open.

Oasis is our new Wednesday community gathering (formerly Midweek) for all ages (i.e. no more Monday evening meetings for Middle School students). Food trucks will be on campus to service meals and homework rooms available for families (before and after a given program event) on these nights as well!

Sunday Morning Gatherings

Sundays, August 26-December 9

Our Sunday morning gathering is a time for students and leaders to reflect and dive deeper into the previous Wednesday teachings. This is an intentional time to have more theological conversations and to have a safe space to invest in community.
