With stronger family ministry being one of VPC’s strategic goals, Student Ministries is dedicated to partnering with parents. We believe that you are the strongest influence on your child’s faith, and therefore we want to support you! Parents, please know that we care about you as well as your child, and we very much welcome any ministry feedback you have for us. We’d also love to meet you! Feel free stop to in and say hi when you drop off/pick up your child, or visit us at our office during the week. Parents are always welcome. Also, parent volunteers are a beloved gift to our ministry. If you have a heart to help behind the scenes or in ministry with students, please talk to us more.
Parents of Middle School and High School students:

Join Us! for Sticky Faith Classes
The GOOD NEWS is that research shows that parents are the #1 influencers when it comes to their child's faith.
At VPC, we'd love to partner with you - the parents! - to help create a faith that lasts. The class was met with such enthusiasm by parents of confirmation students, that we are excited to make it available to ALL parents!
What is the format of the class? Each lesson includes a 20 minute video followed by a time of discussion. The class is taught by various parents who are committed to raising children in the faith and who want to share their experiences!
