Why “Journey Kids”?

You may wonder why our ministry is called “Journey Kids.” If you think about the word “journey,” it often refers to an ongoing, ever changing thing. The life of a child is quite similar. We believe that God leads us on an exciting journey as we learn about Him, His plan for us and how to live for Him. This is true whether we are six month, six years or 16 years old. Children are always changing and growing into who they will be as an adult. At Journey Kids, we want to be an active part of that journey by showing our kids the love of Christ, teaching them about God in a way that is fun and current, as well as giving them an opportunity to create godly relationships with others.

Kids Worship

Preschool Area (ages 2-5/K):

Our preschool classrooms are staffed with caring, prescreened volunteers who have a passion for teaching kids about God and showing them His love in a practical way. Classes may include age appropriate play, games, snacks, Bible stories, videos, worship and prayer time.

Elementary Area (1st – 5th grade):

Each services includes a large group time (high energy, interactive and lots of fun!) for 1st-5th grade and small group time (where your child can grow closer to God and their peers).

Where do I go and what should I expect on a Sunday morning?

When you enter the main doors a greeter will direct you downstairs to the Children’s Wing/Nursery. When you arrive you will be greeted by our friendly volunteers and asked some basic information for check in. Your child will receive a name tag and if you are the parent of a nursery or preschool child you will receive a claim card that is required for the pick-up of your child.
