Women's Bible Studies

Spring 2023

Isaiah – Melissa Spoelstra

In this 7-session study, Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worth of our utter dependance. In Him you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.

Format: Homework, Group Discussion and Video teaching

Details: Thursdays, March 30 – May 11 (7 sessions)

Women's Ministry Mentoring

September 2022 – April 2023

Registration Closed

Are you a woman who desires to grow in faith? Are you teachable and eager to learn from a more experienced follower of Christ? Then take a look at Valley Mentoring!

A mentor is someone with a little more experience who comes alongside another and points her to Jesus. We would love to line YOU up with a Valley Church mentor. Mentors and mentees meet every two to three weeks from October through April. Your mentor is here to love, listen, encourage, and pray with you.

Here is what one of the mentees shared about her experience.
“I feel I have a new friend in my mentor. I know I could come to her with any question, concern or prayer request, and she would be there for me. She has also been very open as she has walked through preparing to send a son to college this fall, and transitioning family members from living at home to assisted living. It has been beneficial to watch her navigate the processes as I believe both will be in my future.”

PLEASE NOTE: We do ask that mentors and mentees be attenders of Valley Church. If you would like information about starting mentoring at your church, please email Amy at amyn@valley.church.

DVD STUDIES:
  • No charge for members of Valley Church

MOPS has given me a great opportunity to build relationships with other moms in the same season of life. Together we’re able to navigate young motherhood, marriage, and following Jesus in a fun setting.

Lindsay Morris

Valley Women’s Ministry has provided me great opportunities to connect, grow and lead. My second week at Valley, I was invited to a Bible Study and out of that study came many of my best friends!

Val Bantz

When we do Bible study together, the layering of shared life experiences and practical application that my sisters in Christ bring to the table enriches my perspective and understanding. It strengthens and encourages my faith.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

9:30-11:30 am · Two Fridays per month

September 16, 2022 – May 12, 2023

We believe that it’s just as important for moms to grow as it is to take care of our little ones. Therefore, MOPS exists to serve you and your kids. While your children play and learn in the care and safety of our on-site MOPS KIDS program, MOPS moms meet to socialize, hear from speakers, engage in creative activities and small group discussion, and share in a kid-uninterrupted breakfast and coffee break. Our hope is that you walk away refreshed, inspired, connected, and ready to brave the day.

You can expect a fun variety of snacks, curriculum, fellowship, prayer and devotions, crafts, playdates, and outside events.

2022-2023 Valley MOPS dues are $60 for moms without childcare and $90 with childcare. You may pay one semester at a time or for both semesters now:
Valley MOPS dues with no childcare (1 semester) – $30
Valley MOPS dues with no childcare (2 semesters) – $60
Valley MOPS dues with childcare (1 semester) – $45
Valley MOPS dues with childcare (2 semesters) – $90

After you register for Valley MOPS, there is also a $32 MOPS International yearly registration fee paid directly to MOPS International on the MOPS website. You will receive instruction on this after you have registered here.

We are excited to welcome new moms into our group for next year. For more information about MOPS or information regarding scholarships email MOPS today!
