SUNDAY SCHOOL: 9:45-10:45

Our Sunday School program consists of Middle School and High School students that meet on the Student Ministries Floor in grade level rooms for lessons and announcements. Each morning we have doughnuts in the Assembly Hall and Café for students to enjoy.


This choir group consists of both Middle and High School students. Each student takes part in contemporary pieces of music in preparation for worship services and choir tour.

SUNDAY NIGHT: 5:00-7:00

During the school year we have a rotating Sunday Night schedule of Thrive EPIC, Thrive Serve, and Thrive Worship Nights! Each week focuses on an aspect of our mission statement as we are always striving to help our students have their own connection with their Creator and to begin to make their faith their own.

Thrive EPICs are our fellowship nights! These nights are a great night to invite visitors as it is always fun filled and jam packed! Some nights we might stay at the church and other nights we might go out to a location in and around Birmingham! Trust us, you don’t want to miss these nights as we “connect with others!”

Thrive Serve is designed for students to interact with various mission opportunities and provide them ways to not only give back, but also share God’s love to those around us. We want our students to have the ability to serve in various ways on campus but also at other sites in our area. Many of these nights we will highlight one of the many Service Partners of VHUMC so the students can see the organizations that our church is already supporting. During Serve Nights we want to be the hands and feet of Christ and to “serve God by loving others.”

Thrive Worship nights are our time to praise our Lord and Savior as one collective student ministry. On these nights we begin with a first come first serve snack supper. Following dinner, we have a time of worship with our students. Each night we will sing several songs, participate in a game, as well as a message. Our goal is for students to “experience real worship” in a variety of ways, so each service may look a little different. If you are wanting a time to be with people your age and worship God in a relaxed atmosphere this is the night for you!
