  • HOW DO I JOIN A GROUP?
    When groups are in session, you can click the button above & it will take you to Planning Center or Church Center where you can view available groups. Find a group you like and join!
  • WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK?
    That’s okay! Just communicate with your leader so they know you won’t be there. We do miss you when you cannot attend, but we do understand that things come up. Please note that if you miss 3 weeks in a row and do not communicate or respond to your leader, you will be removed from the group.
  • HOW DO GROUPS WORK?
    Valley Groups run in three 10 week Sessions Fall, Spring, and Summer.

  • WHAT IF I JOIN A GROUP AND I DON'T LIKE IT?
    Just tell the leader and they can help you find a new group that is a better fit! We won’t take it personally, we want you to find a group that you love.
  • HOW DO I FIND A GROUP THAT IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR ME?
    On Church/Planning Center, you can filter for groups based on many things, such as: day of the week, frequency, type of group, age and stage of life!
  • WHAT IF THE GROUP I'M INTERESTED IN IS FULL OR CLOSED?
    Reach out to the leader! When you view the group in Church/Planning Center, there is always a link available on that groups page that allows you to directly email the leader.
