Groups & Classes

Connect with others and grow in your faith through our groups and classes.

With it being one of our Core Values, we believe that “Community” in LifeGroups at VNC is a great way to get connected with other believers, grow in your faith, and experience true community (celebrating together, grieving together, and growing in Christ together). Our groups strive to help people Know Jesus more, Love Jesus more, and Obey Jesus more, as we become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. If you’d like to be a part of a LifeGroup, or lead one, please click the button below and let us know.

The Bible Recap

Have you ever closed your Bible and thought, What did I just read? Or maybe you have tried to read through the Bible in a year, but quit when it felt confusing or impersonal. The Bible Recap is here to help. Tara-Leigh Cobble, host of the popular Bible Recap podcast, walks readers through a one-year chronological Bible reading plan and explains each day's passage in an easy-to-understand way.


Emphasizing how God's character can be seen throughout Scripture, the recaps are simple and short yet deep enough to help you understand the hard parts and press into knowing God better. The Bible Recap will not only help you understand the entire narrative of the Bible, it will fortify your faith. Join our Bible Recap group as we read the Bible in a year through this chronological reading plan!

Leaders: Carla Hawkins & Cindy Godby

Meeting Dates: Every other Sunday at 9 a.m. in the Youth Center, began January 7, but join anytime!
