WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
When we moved here from South Carolina about 5 years ago, I was lost and didn’t have any friends. When I visited VRSM and was welcomed with a warm smile, I felt like I had found a second home. Christ has really changed my life through the meaningful discussions and wonderful community I have experienced at VRSM. It truly is a life-changing group!
I love VRSM because everyone there loves one another like family. The whole ministry is very inclusive and all the leaders are easy to talk to in times of struggle and are there to support you when you succeed. I have made some of my best friends through the ministry and also been able to watch each other grow in Christ and grow together, which has been one of my favorite things since joining the ministry!
VRSM has helped me grow spiritually by showing me what it’s like to love Jesus and love others, but also how to put that into practice by serving the community and laughing together. My relationship with Jesus would not be as strong as it is today without VRSM and the many people and leaders who have invested in me.
VRSM has shown me the purpose and joy found in having Godly community. Being able to walk alongside such a great group of people has made it easier to be bold and grow in my faith. The people here are so special and their love for the Lord is evident by how they love others and invite them into our student ministry. VRSM has taught me how to pursue a deeper faith and seek Christ above all other things.

ESL classes are a wonderful way to build bridges with those who are diverse and disconnected in our community. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends, neighbors, and others you have met who could benefit from English classes. Printed cards are available for pickup in the church office so that you can use them to invite people to attend.
If you have questions or would like to register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This ministry is in place thanks to our many faithful volunteers and we couldn't do it without them. If you would like to volunteer and help to make an impact in our community as a teacher, substitute teacher, childcare, please send a message to Arthur Mendes at email@example.com.
