You Belong

Life Groups at Valley are a place where you can experience genuine community. It’s the primary way you can make new friends, grow deeper in your spiritual journey, and use your spiritual gifts. Don’t worry about fitting in. We come from various backgrounds, have different experiences, and are from multiple generations; yet we embrace our differences and live out God’s Word together. Our life groups are centered around four themes creating a more holistic experience: share, study, support, and serve.


Connecting through conversations about everyday life.


Learning to apply God’s Word from the weekly message.


Meeting each other’s needs through prayer, care, and encouragement.


Impacting the church and community through good works.

God brought people into our lives we never would have met if it weren’t for our life group. We had a tough situation happening when we first joined and they were there for us in big ways, especially in prayer, without really even knowing us yet.

Brian & Julie Moreau

My life group has been amazing. It has not only deepened my understanding of scripture, but it has helped me apply it to my life. It has also given my wife and I a true sense of community and belonging.

Mark Jensen

I love being in a life group because it’s a consistent gathering with intentional conversation, whether we’re talking about spiritual topics or just about the things that are happening in our lives. It’s so cool to have people from different walks of life converge and do life together.

Kyra Cooper

I truly appreciate how welcoming and loving my life group is! We don’t only just meet once a week, but rather living life together serving Christ’s mission.

Derick Chick

I may be biased, but our life group is the best! We have a great group and amazing leaders!
