WHAT IS JVENTURES?
More than just babysitting the kids during our services, JVentures focuses on sharing a love of Christ with our youngest attendees by providing children’s classes geared to each specific age range. Our goal is to give kids a fun church experience, both learning about Bible stories and being taught ways to apply what they learn in their lives.
WHO GOES TO JVENTURES?
JVentures is designed for children from birth to Kindergarten. Classrooms are divided by the following categories: Infants (0-24 months), Toddlers (2-3s), and Pre-K/K (4-5s). Each classroom will be taught by an adult volunteer, as well as a classroom helper. All volunteers are background checked before serving to ensure the safety of our children.
WHAT DOES MY CHILD DO IN JVENTURES?
Each week, your child gets to participate in a church experience created with them in mind! The weekly lesson includes an engaging story, age-appropriate crafts, and lots of games and activities to reiterate the week’s message. We utilize a combination of both video, audio, and live elements to keep children engaged. Lessons are created based upon typical age capabilities, so parents can rest assured that their children aren’t just playing, but learning! Even in the infant room, we sing to our babies individually with a song related to our monthly theme. Children receive a snack and leave with plenty of things to show all of the fun they’ve had.
Each month, a theme is created that all of our lessons center around. JVentures classrooms will often be decorated to fit the theme, as well as all of our activities relating back to the month’s theme. Don’t be surprised to see our volunteers sporting silly ensembles themselves, as we love to push our themes as far as possible!
WHEN IS JVENTURES?
JVentures is held during each of our weekend services. Children can be checked in at our check-in stations as early as 30 minutes before the adult service starts and at any time during the service. Children should be picked up promptly after service ends.
We will gladly answer any additional questions or concerns you may have! For additional information, contact your campus JVentures Coordinator, or you may email our Central Kids Ministry Coordinator, Christina Hunt.
