Teaching

Christian Education for all ages
We welcome and invite all ages to gather for Christian Education following Worship. Children meet from 11:00 am to 12:00 p.m.  Youth, Young Adults and Adults begin at 11:15 am to 12:00 pm following coffee and conversation.  Our classes run from September – June with a break during the summer months.

ADULT DISCUSSION GROUPS

We invite young adults and adults to attend Christian Education in the sanctuary after worship.

YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL

We welcome youth and their friends for Sunday school after worship on Sunday morning for biblically based topical discussions.

JUNIOR SUNDAY SCHOOL

Our vision for Junior Sunday School is to deepen each child’s relationship with God and with their church community, forming them in faith through their experiences of significant Bible stories.  We long for each child to know how deeply they are loved by God, and to grow up into mature persons of faith who lovingly live out God’s call for peace, justice and the Kingdom of God.  Our children’s offering project invites our children to share God’s generosity with others and be good stewards of God’s gifts.

Valleyview launched a new model for Sunday School in the fall of 2010 for JK-Grade 8.   Children experience selected Bible stories in different ways through a variety of hands-on learning workshop models over a series of weeks.   Examples of workshops include cooking, cinema, brick-making, woodworking, puppetry, drama, paper mâché, science labs, games and more.  Children participate in age-based classes (JK/SK/Grade 1; Grades 2-4; Grades 5-6; Grades 7-8).  Nursery care is offered for ages 1-3 during the Sunday School hour. Junior Sunday School runs immediately after worship from 11 am to 12 noon.
