intergenerational relationships

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
(9-12 grades)
TUESDAYS, 6:30–9pm
MIDDLE SCHOOL (6-8 grades)
THURSDAYS, 6:30–9pm

During the school year, we meet together for encouragement, discipleship, friendship, food, music, and entertainment. We also get together for Small Group outings, guys and girls only events, and other hangout nights.

First Fridays - Game Nights for high school and middle school! High School meets on even months and Middle School meets on odd months. Dates are posted on social.Check the Event Calendar for upcoming events

VBC Youth Sunday
(6th-8th gr.) 
EVERY SUNDAY at 9am, WC Rm 312 
HIGH SCHOOL (9th-12th gr.), WC Rm 315 

Meet in the Worship Center Auditorium to participate in worship with the main congregation. Before the sermon begins, students are dismissed to go to their classroom 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 every Sunday during both services, we encourage students 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 (such as VBC Kids or First Impressions), we want to empower students to love their 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! 

2024 Dates: April 12 & May 17, 6–9pm in the FLC
