SERVICE

Valleyview wants to provide Youth with opportunities for Service! We believe Service is a key part of how we walk in Jesus’ Footsteps.   Our Youth have been active in service projects in Canada, USA, and Guatemala.

MILESTONES MINISTRIES

At Valleyview we celebrate milestones for our Youth!

A milestone is an intentional celebration of key milestones or “markers” along life’s journey which have opportunity to shape faith as we grow and change. Their purpose is to strengthen and nurture the faith of those experiencing a particular milestone, as well as the entire faith community.

MENNONITE SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE

Valleyview realizes the significant importance of a Mennonite summer camp experience for Youth.  Valleyview will subsidize the camper fees of Youth actively participating in our Sunday school program and church life.  Currently we subsidize each Youth for one week of summer camp, based on the cost of one week at Silver Lake Mennonite Camp.
