An opportunity for men to study the Bible and enjoy a time of fellowship and conversation with one another.

The men's study meets throughout the year on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at 7:30am.
Young Adult Coffeehouse
Young Adult Coffeehouses are a ministry partnership between Valley Chapel, Pleasant Street Christian Reformed Church, and Fairlawn Christian Reformed Church. Hosted on a rotating basis between all partnering churches on the first Friday evening of every month, all area High School Graduates to 30’s are invited for a free night of Christian Fellowship – including live music, board games, and tasty treats. More information is available on their facebook page.
A number of small groups (6 – 10 adults) are organized within our congregation to bring people together on a regular basis for a time of study, prayer, and fellowship. Currently, there are groups meeting on Sunday and Thursday evenings; some meet in homes, some meet at the church. If you would like to join such a group, or have questions, please contact the church office.

Story Hour, for 3- to 5-year olds, offers Bible stories, singing, praying, crafts and snacks. A nursery for infants is also provided. See our Coffee Break page for more information.
