Small Group Bible StudIes meet in homes or in the Worship Center on various nights of the week. They run from September to December, then break for the holidays. They start up again in January and continue into June, then break for the Summer.
All of our Small Group Bible Studies are intended to increase the knowledge and application of God's Word in the lives of His people through an IN-DEPTH STUDY OF A BOOK OF THE BIBLE or A SPECIFIC TOPIC/BOOK. Groups not only spend time in prayer and fellowship, but they also provide accountability and care for one another as needs arise. All groups are led by qualified leaders/teachers from the congregation who receive continuing oversight and support from the elders.
Need Childcare? FREE childcare is available for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening classes held at Valley Bible Church. You must register for childcare ONLINE.

Life Groups typically meet in homes and run 10 weeks long. Each group has 15 minutes of refreshments at the beginning, followed by 30-45 minutes of reviewing homework BASED ON THE PREVIOUS WEEK'S SERMON, and ends with 15-30 minutes of prayer. Groups will be asked to schedule a social meeting and service project during the 10 weeks. We hope that this will help facilitate connections within the group.
Need Childcare? There are a couple of options available for childcare depending upon the group's meeting dates and location.
Church-provided: Childcare will be provided at Valley Bible Church for the cost of $5 per child, per evening ($10 family max.). Scholarships will be available upon need. Register online at the bottom of this page!
Group-arranged: Childcare will be arranged among the group. A location, babysitter, and cost will be facilitated by the group leader.
