VGYTH Upcoming Events….

 

 
Welcome to Benji and Amy Kimbrough. Benji is our new youth director. Amy is the financial secretary. They have 2 teenage boys that are a part of the youth group and also a baby girl. They will work alongside each other to serve our youth at Valley Grove. You can see a video on our Facebook page with more information. Here is a link to the video on Facebook.
 

We would like to welcome you to Valley Grove Baptist Church. Our youth ministry is based around equipping our students with what is needed to face those day-to-day challenges that make the Christian life so hard sometimes. This is done through the teaching of God’s Word, fellowship with each other and encouraging each other throughout the week, and most importantly, loving each other.

         

Not only do we want to strengthen our students, but we also want to strengthen our families. If your entire family comes to church, we want to help you grow as a family. If you are alone, we want to be your family and reach out to those family members that may not come.

 

I hope you will consider visiting us and find a reflection of Jesus Christ in all of us. If you have any questions feel free to contact the church. You can also look at our Facebook Page to see what our Youth is up to,

God bless and may He lead you in all things.

The Youth will be celebrating Thanksgiving together. Parents of the Youth are also encouraged to join them.

What a wonderful time of the year, that has come upon us.  As we get to the seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas coming soon after that.  I absolutely love this time of the year. All the extras that come along with it.  We get extra time with family, there are parties and events to attend, bowl season of college football, college basketball gets going, there are so many awesome things that happen during the holiday season as we close out the year 2022 over the next couple of months and we start preparing to turn the page on to 2023 and a new year. 

We get to celebrate Thanksgiving this month.  I know that I am thankful for so many things.  A Godly wife, 3 fantastic children, a wonderful family, an awesome church family, the kids in our youth group, a job to go to, and I could just continue to go on and on and on.  But you know its easy to think about the things I am thankful for right now as I write a newsletter.  How often do we overlook some of the simple blessing that God has given us?  I said something a couple of Sundays ago to the effect of “if anything good has happened to you this week it was from God, and if anything happened this week in your life that wasn’t good it wasn’t from God.” 

In the Book of James, we are reminded of that. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17. The goodness and the blessings of God are all around us, and He is unchanging He loves us, He cares for us, He provides for us, He died for us. This season of Thanksgiving lets count all the blessing, and all the good in our lives and let’s not take for granted the one who is responsible for it all, and let’s work to remember this not just during thanksgiving season but allow the season to follow us the whole year. 

In His Love

We had an amazing time on our Youth Summer Camp trip! We grew in the Lord together and got to enjoy time on the beach with our church family. We played games that taught lessons, sang, and were led in time with our God from His Word. Check out the pictures below from our trip.
 
 
 
Our Youth went to the Xtreme Conference in Gatlinburg, TN December 27th! They had such a great time getting to explore what the town had to offer, getting to hear some amazing speakers, and getting to experience some great worship music. Not only did the Youth learn but so did our chaperones, and really enjoyed themselves while guiding our Youth on this trip.
