supporting our families

We offer a variety of events and activities to help our families connect with each other and the surrounding community. Please check our calendar for upcoming events and activities.

Parent Support

Our monthly Mom's fellowship gives mothers the chance to connect and find support through shared experiences.  A yearly Special Needs conference and other family oriented seminars are offered by Valley Church through the Special Needs Ministry Network of Des Moines. Sign up today!

Family Events

     Special Events

  • Opportunities for fun, fellowship and connecting are offered through periodic family get-togethers, Hand in Hand family evening at the Great Pumpkin Party, and our family Operation Christmas Child Shoebox packing party.


  • We encourage siblings ages 6-13 to attend this fun and lively event. We provide a fun and safe environment where we are intentional in our discussion to get them to open up about having a sibling with special needs. 
    Cost: $10 for the first child. $5 for each additional sibling (max. of $20).
    You can register for any of the following dates below.
