Welcome to the Journey Kids Ministry! Journey Kids offers ministry from birth to fifth grade. We use curriculum that teaches children: who God is, God’s character, His attributes, His great love for us and our glad hearted response to God. We desire to see your children treasure Jesus Christ with their whole being and enjoy our time together each week as they begin their journey with Him!
We believe that the primary responsibility for spiritual nurturing falls with the parents, before any other institution. According to the Bible, we as parents are to teach our children about the Lord and his commandments at all times. As parents shepherd their children through Scripture, our ministry serves as reinforcement to their teaching. (Psalm 78:1-8; Ephesians 6:1-4)
JourneyKids desires to partner with parents in building a strong spiritual foundation for life from infancy by:
- Showing Christ’s love to each child and his/her family
- Teaching Biblical truths through activities that are Christ centered and child oriented
- Encouraging the development of relationships with peers and members of the Journey Family
Below are some commonly asked questions for the checking in process that help give you an understanding of what to expect when you visit:
Where do we first go to check in our children?
There is a JourneyKids table located in the entrance of the church for first time visitors. Here, you will receive a security identification tag (explained below) and a greeter who will escort you to the appropriate classrooms for your children.
How do I check in my children on Sunday morning?
All children must be checked into their appropriate classrooms by a parent or guardian. Each child is checked in and given two name tags for identification; one for the child and one for the parent/guardian. Parents/Guardians must keep this identification tag with them until they are ready to check their children out of their classrooms.
How do I check out my children on Sunday morning?
When parents/guardians arrive to check out their children, they must present the appropriate name identification tag. JourneyKids volunteers will not allow a child to leave the children’s area without the appropriate tag, no exceptions.
What do the children do while they are in Journey Kids?
Children will worship with music, listen to the lesson’s Bible story, and they will also participate in fun activities and games that help reinforce what was learned in the story.
