My name is Karyn Malchus and I’m the Director of Family Ministries at Valencia United Methodist Church. I’m glad that you’ve taken the time to explore what we offer as we are in ministry with kids and families. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like more information.
We offer Sunday school during both worship hours for ages 3 years through 6th grade, as well as a Nursery & Toddler Care Center and choirs for kids 4 years old through sixth grade.
Pioneer Clubs is a Wednesday night faith and fellowship opportunity for kids between the ages of 3 years and 6th grade. Through a variety of activities, kids learn how to make Jesus a part of everything they do. Pioneer Clubs runs September through May.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School meets for one week during the summer for fun, fun, and more fun! Each year provides ways for kids to connect with God and with other kids through Bible stories, music, snacks, crafts, and more! VBS is open to kids between the ages of three years (must be fully potty-trained) and 6th grade. We offer a special tween program for 5th and 6th graders. VBS is scheduled for June 25-29—for more information, click below.
Christ-Centered Kids (CCK) is a Friday night fun and fellowship youth group for 5th and 6th graders. At this stage of your child’s life, kids can often feel they don’t fit in anywhere. They feel too big to be with the little kids and too young hang out with teenagers. This is why we created CCK! We meet every other Friday night, September through May for social gatherings/outings. This is not a class! You come to the events that fit with your child’s schedule.

Mom2Mom provides Christian-based support and encouragement to women in the challenging season of life called motherhood. Our mission is to educate, encourage, and equip women for the most important job in the entire world: parenting. We do this through practical, Biblically-based teaching and supportive interaction in small groups led by our experienced and supportive Mentor Moms. Whether you feel the need for direction, refueling, fellowship or simply to make new friends, we invite you to navigate this journey with us.
