Big City Kids
Welcome to the Big City Kids! At West Valley Church it is important to us that all our children (and their parents) know they are in a safe and loving environment. We have amazing adult leaders committed to loving each child and helping learn what it means to be part of God’s family. As kids come into the Big City, they will learn: God is with us wherever we go, God wants us to be light in a dark world, and God wants us to be witnesses in Yakima and anywhere else we go.
