Vale Groups


vale groups

Vale Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. Groups are the best place for sustained life change to happen. A group gives everyone a chance to know and to be known by others and have an opportunity to be discipled and become all God has planned for our lives. That's why Vale Groups exist - to make these life-changing relationships accessible to you.

frequently asked questions

Each Group is unique, but most involve food, real talk, and learning to follow Jesus together. Some do topical studies or Bible studies. Others engage with the weekly sermon/messages or do video Bible studies on RightNow media. Groups are encouraged to engage the community together, serving others. You will be building authentic community and friendship as you pursue God together.

Most Groups meet in homes, out in the community, to create the warm, relaxed environment that leads to great conversation.

Vale doesn't offer childcare for Groups. However, some Groups share the responsibility of arranging their own childcare by finding sitters or making other arrangements. Some Groups include children while they meet.

Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. The frequency might vary by season, but we encourage meeting weekly to give real opportunity to grow together.

We follow a "trimester" pattern, with new groups launching in September, January, and April. Summer schedules vary by group, and some groups "pause" to engage in on-campus summer courses or meet less frequently due to vacation/activity schedules, launching new studies with the fall session.

Great question! We want to help you find a great "fit", so if the first experience doesn't meet your needs, please let us know. With a wide variety of groups to choose from, it's okay to consider your first step a "test drive", with the option to change if you wish. We are here to help!
