Be a part of our expansion initiative to MAKE ROOM for the future of our Valley family!

Mobilizing high school students’ God-given potential
to deeply love Christ and their neighbors.




9:30-10:45 AM • Student Ministries Room

  • PURPOSE: Our vision is to empower and equip students with the tools they need to study Scripture well.

We understand that navigating Scripture can feel daunting sometimes, but we’re here to help! Our Sunday Morning program is designed to equip students with the tools and confidence needed to explore God’s word faithfully. Through engaging discussions, interactive activities, and supportive guidance from our leaders, teens discover the relevance and beauty of Scripture in their lives. Join us as we journey together in discovering the richness of God’s word!

*Our Sunday Morning Program meets every Sunday morning except for Christmas & Easter!


6:00-8:00 PM • Host Homes

  • PURPOSE: To cultivate genuine relationships and grow together.

Begins June 23 with Summer Kickoff at the VCC. Welcome to Summer Nights, where the Des Moines metro comes alive with warmth, laughter, and community! Join us as we gather in host homes throughout the summer for laid-back evenings filled with engaging activities, meaningful conversations, and shared moments. Whether it’s bonfires under the stars, outdoor movie nights, or simply enjoying good company, Summer Nights is the perfect opportunity to forge connections, deepen friendships, and create lasting memories. Come join us as we embrace the spirit of summer and build vibrant community together!


Host Home Locations coming soon!

Bible & Breakfast
