Kids

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Venture Kids Ministry partners with families to invest in the spiritual development of kids.
Being a Venture Kid means you will learn to: 
HEAR: Listen to God’s Words     |     TALK: Articulate their Faith     |     PRAY: Dialogue with God     |     LIVE: Worship with their Life
At our weekend services and regular kids events we provide fun and safe environments for kids to learn and grow.
We are passionate about introducing kids to a relationship with Jesus and teaching them how to be a disciple for the rest of their lives.

“You are the light of the world.
A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

Kids Town Environments:

Nursery (Infant to 18 months)

The focus of our Kids Town Nursery is to provide a safe, calm environment for our youngest children so parents can enjoy a worry-free worship experience.

Toddler (18 months to 3 years)

The focus of our Kids Town Toddler environment is to begin teaching kids how to engage with Bible stories. Our time consists of story time, craft time, and play time. Our toddler environment is a potty-training friendly environment.

Pre-K (Ages 3 to 5)

Our preschool environment is intentionally designed to lay a strong foundation for kids about Jesus, the Bible and church. Every week we present three questions:
What? What are we talking about today?
So What? Why does it matter to God and to us?
Now What? What does God want us to do about it?
We explore the answers through worship, a bible story, fun activities and small group.

Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)

Special Needs

Venture also offers a “special needs” space for children ages Pre-K through Elementary. This class is offered at our 9AM service at our Central campus and provides a safe sensory environment for kids of all abilities. Our special needs class will be staffed with experienced teachers who are passionate about helping children with special needs learn more about God, with opportunities to integrate into age appropriate kids worship depending on the needs of the child

*Due to Covid-19 guidelines this environment is temporarily closed, however we are still passionate about serving our families. At this time, please let us know at Kids Check-In how we can best serve to your child. We also have noise canceling headphones for your child to wear either during our Venture Kid City service or with you in the auditorium*

How to Check-In

At Venture Church, the safety and security of your children is a huge priority to us. That is why we’ve chosen Planning Center Check-Ins to bring you the best experience and to allow us to partner with you to keep your children safe. We have a check-in kiosk located in the Kids Ministry lobby at our Central Campus where we have experienced volunteers to help get your child(ren) checked in.

Once your child is checked in at the kiosk, ID tags for your family will be printed. Both you and your child will have matching ID tags exclusive to your family. Your child will wear one tag while you keep the other matching tag. After the service, you will return to kids check-out and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

In the event that your child requires you during the service, we will text your cell phone.  We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
