Our main focus is creating intergenerational relationships that will help students know Christ and follow Him as they move from being teens into adulthood.
What We Do
VBC Youth Midweek - During the school year, we meet together for encouragement, discipleship, friendship, food, music, and entertainment. High School (9-12 grades) meets on Tuesdays 6:30–9pm; Middle School (6-8 grades) meets on Thursdays 6:30–9pm. We also get together for Small Group outings, game nights, guys and girls only events, and other hangout nights. Check the Event Calendar for upcoming events
VBC Youth Sunday (MIDDLE SCHOOL ONLY, 6th-8th grades) - At 9:00am service, meet in the Worship Center Auditorium to participate in worship with the main congregation. Before the sermon begins, Middle School is dismissed to go to the 3rd floor classrooms for games and teaching! Bring your Bible if you have one! Meets every Sunday except major holidays. Follow us on social media for updates!
Rather than meeting on Sunday mornings, we encourage students in 9th through 12th grade to integrate into the life of the church body. Whether by worshipping alongside their parents or friends, sitting under the teaching of elders, or serving in other areas of ministry (like K–8), we want to empower students to love the church.
Freak Out Friday (4th-5th grades) - VBC Youth hosts special game nights about 2-3 times per year for 4th & 5th graders to introduce them to our youth ministry and get to know the incoming 6th graders a little better. Cost is $5/student and includes pizza, snacks, tons of games. Students are encouraged to invite their friends!
VOLLEYBALL MADNESS - High School outdoor recreational volleyball at Hanna Ranch Field in Hercules! No experience necessary; coaching provided. League play: Tuesdays, June-August. Championships held on a Saturday, 2pm–6pm. $40 per student, includes team jersey.
