Join us on Sundays!
Student Ministries encourages students and families to worship together! The schedule below shows worship & Sunday School options. Communion Sunday is the first Sunday of every month and it is a special time when families can worship and take communion together as part of the whole church body. Thus, we will not offer Underground AM (Sunday School) on Communion Sundays.
‘Underground AM’ is Sunday School for 7th-12th grade students (9:30-10:30am, except for 1st Sunday of each month)
Middle school students and high school students receive a message geared toward their age and stage. Following the message, students are given discussion time to encourage questions and develop their faith with their peers and adult leaders.
‘Inter-generational Class’ is Sunday School for 4th grade students & up (11:00-noon, except for Communion Sundays)
Join us for an inter-generational class with a Gospel centered curriculum that is accessible to everyone! Mixed-aged classes are a great way for teens to get to know other adults in the congregation and have conversations about faith. Parents can participate in the class and continue the Sunday morning conversations at home.
If you have any questions or need more information, feel free to contact Thea at email@example.com.

Join us Sunday evenings!
Underground PM, 5:30-7:30pm
Students grow together in community and are transformed through worship, fellowship, and small groups. Our small groups are co-led by strong adults who are committed to helping teens pursue authentic faith. We have Middle School and High School PM from 5:30-7:30. Middle and high school students meet separately for fellowship and small groups, but all students worship together.

Student Leadership Team
The Student Leadership Team is a group of selected students, grades 10-12, who have been identified as leaders at VPC. The team seeks to encourage and equip students on their journey as lifelong disciples of Christ with a focus on leadership abilities and strong character.
We do this through:
- Honoring a yearlong commitment to the team with monthly gatherings
- Offering opportunities to serve in leadership roles
- Receiving encouragement and feedback on leadership
- Exploring our gifts and opportunities to try new things
- Encouraging each student to develop & share their testimony during the year
- Leading discussions based on Habitudes, a Biblical leadership training resource.
Youth Music Ministry
VPC offers students opportunities for choir, orchestra, a worship band, and hand bell choir. Click here for more information.
