Summer Bible Study

James - Room for Growth

We all have room for growth, both personally and as a faith community. In this epistle, we don’t just learn what to do, but how to do it. How do we gain wisdom? How should we view the people around us? How should we treat them? How do we deal with trials? How will our faith be seen? In the book of James, we find answers to these questions that echo both Jesus’ teaching and the book of Proverbs.

Cost: $5 for Study Guide

Women's Ministry Mentoring

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.

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.

The MOMCo (previously known as MOPS)

9:30–11:30 am · Two Fridays per month

September 2024–May 2025

We believe that it’s just as important for moms to grow as it is to take care of our little ones. Therefore, MOMCo exists to serve you and your kids. While your children play and learn in the care and safety of our on-site MOMCo KIDS program, MOMCo 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.

Yearly dues are $60 for Valley MOMCo, $30 for childcare, and $37 The MOMCo International membership. For your convenience, you may pay for the entire year or one semester at a time.

Valley MOMCo and MOMCo International dues with no childcare – 1 semester $67
Valley MOMCo and MOMCo International dues with no childcare – 2 semesters $97
Valley MOMCo and MOMCo International dues with childcare – 1 semester $82
