FridayGroceries is an outreach of Valley Family Church located at 2500 Vincent Road, at the Cathedral Campus. Each Friday morning from 10-11am at The Cathedral located on our main campus, we distribute supplemental groceries to families in need in our community. At 9am we offer an optional devo that all are invited to attend. Then, each month, we take FridayGroceries Mobile to various communities throughout Southwest Michigan. To help subsidize FridayGroceries, we opened the Valley Thrift store where people can purchase and/or donate used goods. The proceeds from Valley Thrift help us fund FridayGroceries and other outreach ministries at VFC. (Follow FridayGroceries on Facebook to find out where and when FridayGroceries goes Mobile each month.)

The BOOM Network
Friends don't let friends do ministry alone! That's the heartbeat of The BOOM Network and the reason Pastors Jeff and Beth felt led to start BOOM! God never intended for life and ministry to be a solo sport, so The BOOM Network hosts two events a year to encourage other pastors, spouses, PKs and church staff members to get refreshed and to stay strong in their calling! (For Pastors or Ministry Leaders who want to get more information and/or join, just go to: www.theboomnetwork.org.)
Valley Kids Learning Center
Valley Kids Learning Center is a distinctly-Christian environment caring for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Valley Kids Learning Center is a fun place for kids. Our caring staff seeks to build meaningful relationships with children, as well as help them develop the social, emotional, and cognitive skills they will need as they grow and develop. We strive to instill Biblical values as well as an awareness of God’s presence in your child’s daily life.
The childcare philosophy of Valley Kids Learning Center is to raise up a child in a safe and secure Christian atmosphere where they will feel loved, nurtured and cared for during their most formative years. We want children to grow and develop into well-rounded, independent individuals who are given the opportunity to learn while they play.
Valley Leadership School for Young Adults

VLS is a two-year program designed to help young people chase after God, in both a mentoring and peer learning environment. (For more details on what's happening with VLS, follow Valley Leadership School on Facebook.)
When someone gave Valley Family Church Tamarack Valley -- a 100-acre camp, farm and nature park -- we got busy seeking the best ways to utilize this gift for advancing the gospel and helping kids, students and adults-alike live a great life with God! We are in the early stages of developing Tamarack Valley and currently we use it for day camps, wedding rentals and other events. Stay tuned, there is a lot more to come for Tamarack Valley!
