Spiritual Formation

Valley is a place where we celebrate our faith, past and present, and encourage growth for the future. We believe that there are as many ways to connect to God as there are stars in the sky, and we hope we can be a part of your journey. Below, you will find various opportunities for faith development.

Bible Studies


Bible Study @ The Sequoias* 

Join members and friends of Valley Presbyterian Church and residents of     The Sequoias Portola Valley each Wednesday at 11:00 am in Parlor 3 at the Sequoias for a fun and unique Bible Stiudy. We cover the scripture that will be used the following  Sunday at worship. All are welcome! This Bible Study is led by Rev. Jenny Warner and runs from October to June. Drop-ins welcome.


Presbyterian Women Horizon Bible Study*

All women are invited to join this monthly study group, which meets September to May on the third Thursday, from 10:00-11:30 am in the Fireside room. Join us for study, discussion and sharing. For more information and questions, contact Rev. Jenny Warner. 

The Redwood Institute for Spirituality, Education, and Nurture (RISEN)

People of various faith traditions and religious perspectives gather here to tend their spirits by reflecting on their journey through spiritual direction, participating in nurturing programs, resting in the beauty of the space or walking the labyrinth in our beautiful redwood grove. 


In the grove, with its labyrinth and memorial garden surrounded and sheltered by towering redwood trees, you sense the majesty and wonder of creation. It is a perfect setting for rest, play, creativity, prayer and inquiry.


Join us for RISEN, an hour of contemplative prayer, every other Wednesday at 7:30 am in the Redwood Room.*

For more information about RISEN, please contact Joan Roselle.
