Children at VP

At VP we believe that God designed the family to be the primary discipling environment for children. God gives parents the privilege and the responsibility to raise their children to know God and to live as followers of Jesus on mission with God in his Kingdom. It’s a high calling for sure, but you don’t do it alone!

Our Kid Zone Children’s Ministry gathers with kids ages birth through 5th grade during the Sunday morning gathering. Kids K-5 are dismissed during the gathering, and in the summer stay with us for the whole gathering.

Through a blend of teaching, worship, activities and relationships, we help kids learn and experience what it means to love God and love others and be a disciple of Jesus. 

Contact Jill Fischer at for more information.

Youth at VP

VP's Youth Ministry focuses on helping teens encounter God and respond to what he is saying. Across the variety of touchpoints available, youth will experience community, worship, teaching and group conversations. Ultimately we want youth to experience and spread the Good News of the Kingdom of God in their families, schools and the world. 

MIDDLE SCHOOL MINISTRY (6th-8th) meets on the 1st Sunday of each month during the morning Gathering (leave when the kids are dismissed to hang out with the middle school ministry team, and eat donuts!). On the 3rd Sunday of the month middle schoolers meet in the SHED youth building from 6-7:30pm (come at 5:30pm for a light meal together). Email Kim Brown (middle school team leader) for more info about middle school ministry. Click here for a fall middle school ministry calendar.
