Adult Ministries

The Adult Ministry at The Vale is all about worshiping, growing, fellowship, and serving one another to further the Kingdom of Christ.

Bible Fellowship Groups

The Vale Bible Fellowship classes exist to create community and service opportunities.  By studying the scriptures together and accepting various ministry opportunities, these groups allow believers to grow in their faith toward a more disciplined life and walk with Christ.

For a list of our Bible Fellowship Classes, you can download a brochure in PDF form below.

Ladies’ Christian Book Club (LCBC)

Readers & Non-Readers Unite – The LCBC meets each month (excluding December).  No Reading is Required.  Those who want to read the assigned book do so during the month, and readers and non-readers meet on the LAST Thursday of each month to discuss it.  We read 3-4 non-fictions and 7-8 fiction throughout the year….one each month.  This is a very casual group who enjoys reading and/or discussing books.  Ladies of all age groups are welcome. For more information and list of books, contact Cindy Cowley.

Renew Young Adults

Each new chapter of life is filled with tough challenges and exciting possibilities, and one of the most important of these transitions begins after high school. The Renew Young Adult Ministry here at The Vale exists to help students who are on that journey, find their purpose in Christ.

The Renew Young Adult small group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM in the Student Center Room CH104.

Care Groups

We all encounter difficulties and go through hard situations.
Circumstances in which we find ourselves are most often overwhelming.

Benevolence

The primary purpose of the benevolence ministry is to assist people in times of need as the hands and feet of Christ. Though meeting physical needs does not directly accomplish the Great Commission, we recognize that it is often a doorway to do so. As a result, our commitment is to minister to the whole person, whether it be a physical, emotional, or spiritual need that arises.

Hope Ministry

The Vale wants to help the hurting by offering to heal through Bible-based support and encouragement groups that meet on campus on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM.  Each group is designed to meet a specific need but all groups offer Biblical instructions and loving support because each participant is significant because each is loved by God; each created in His likeness and image. Just know that we care!
