The Valley Bible Children’s Ministry is for children from birth through 6th grade. We offer classes where children can learn about the Bible at an age appropriate level alongside their peers.
We have a large and dedicated staff serving our Children's Ministry. This not only provides for a strong teacher-student ratio, it also gives those who are serving Christ the opportunity to grow in their faith. We do a thorough background check on each adult before allowing them to work with children.
We have a nursery available for kids up to 4 years old. Our clean and safe nursery rooms are staffed by loving and competent adults so that parents can attend the worship service and Sunday School classes. Mothers are also welcome to nurse their infants in our infant nursery. For mothers who are not able to leave their children in the nursery, we have a cry room available near the restrooms in the auditorium where you can view and hear the worship service.
Our Children's Sunday School meets during our 9:00 am service. Our Children's Sunday School is a more in-depth time of learning about the Bible in a smaller setting. Children’s church meets during our 10:30 am service and is built around biblical character traits which supplement the teaching from the 9:00 am Sunday School lesson. We also have a group worship time during this service.
Classrooms & Locations:
- Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten (Children age 4 by September 1) – Room 103

5th and 6th grade
CIA, which stands for Christian's In Action, is our in-depth Bible Study for children who are in 5th and 6th grade. CIA meets in rooms 5 and 6 during the 10:30 worship service. This class does not follow the format of our other Children's Church classes, but rather focuses on teaching the children how to read the Bible with understanding. For more information contact Brian Tanner (661-350-7951).
