CVSIX - 6th Graders

The tween years are such an adjustment and challenge for the student as well as the parent.  CVSIX was created to ease the transition from children's ministry to student ministry.  On Sunday mornings there is a small group Bible study just for them at the 9:30 a.m. hour.  During the week the CVSIX students can still participate in the Awana ministry - Wednesday nights.  Beginnning in Sepember we offer between 4 and 5 events specifically for the sixth graders; from a lock-in to a study on purity culminating in a ceremony with the parents involvement.  The sixth graders are officially invited into the CVMID ministry the first weekend in August, during the Sonfest event in Layton,UT.

CVMID - Middle Schoolers

(12 yrs old as of September 1st - 13 yrs old)

Middle School Students are exciting and challenging to minister to and with. We love their energy and enthusiasm and care about all that they go through.  At Central Valley we offer Bible studies on Sunday mornings specifically for CVMID students with classes for boys and girls distinctively.  Refuge, Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., REFUGE is  a time of worship, connection, study, and prayer for both CVMID and CVHIGH students.  Come check us out and learn to connect, grow, serve, and multiply as a follower of Jesus Christ.  

CVHIGH - 9th - 12th Graders

(14 yrs old as of September 1st - H.S. graduation)

High School students have the world ahead of them and wrestle with the bigger questions in life.  CVHIGH is a ministry where students are challenged to step up in their discipling responsibilities if they are a Jesus follower.  This means that these students have options such as international mission trips, leadership in the church as a whole, and specific opportunities to grow deep in Christ. Check out the Sunday morning Bible studies just for the high schoolers and the large worship gathering on Wednesdays called REFUGE at 7:00 p.m.
