Welcome to Venture


Service Times:

Saturdays @ 4pm

Sundays @ 9:30 & 11:15am

 
 

What should I wear?

At Venture, you can "come as you are." We're a diverse group from all walks of life, so you'll fit in just as you are. Be comfortable, and don’t feel like you need to dress up. Jeans and a T-shirt are just as acceptable as a suit or a dress.

 

What do I do when I get there?

The awesome folks in our parking team (the smiling faces in the bright orange vests) will help you find a spot. We reserve parking spots for our first time guests, so if you're new to Venture, be sure to turn your flashers on when you enter the parking lot. 

As you walk in the building, our Guest Experience team are there to welcome you and help you in any way you need - directions around campus, a bible or a pen, or finding a seat in the Worship Center. Look out for anyone with a Venture lanyard or name tag - they're there to help and serve. 

 
 

What is the service like?

Services usually run one hour and 15 minutes: 25 minutes of songs led by our Worship Team, a quick “hello” to everyone from stage, and around 45 minutes of teaching by one of our teaching pastors (or sometime a guest speaker). The music is in a contemporary, band-driven style, and the teaching is practical and straight out of the bible. 

If it’s your first time, be sure to stop by the Guest Center on the way out. You’ll get a chance to meet our pastors, and we have a gift to say thanks for being our guest today.

VENTURE CLASSIC

If you’re looking for more traditional, hymn-based worship and communion with the same dynamic teaching broadcast via video, try Venture Classic during the 9am Sunday service in Venue 2 on the 2nd floor.

 

Multi-Language Translation

We offer translation services for those who speak a different primary language other than English. Currently, we offer Korean & Mandarin Chinese translation during the 11am service.

Venture en Español

The Spanish-speaking community enjoys worship and teaching in their language at Venture en Espanol each Sunday at 1:30pm in Venue 2.


What about my…?

KIDS

Venture Kidz Ministry offers age-appropriate lessons and activities for infants through Grade 5, in a fun, safe environment. Kids programming is available during all four weekend services. We have multiple check-in kiosks located around the building, so follow the signs or ask one of our friendly volunteers to show you way.

STUDENTS

Students in middle school and high school have their own environments, designed just for them. Middle School (678) meets during every service, while Venture High School meets during the 11am Sunday service. Both also gather on Tuesday nights for small groups.

 
 

I loved the service! Now what?

After your first visit, you’ll definitely want to find out ways to get connected. We have a variety of way for you to get connected with other believers to grow in your faith, form deep relationships, and show Christ's love to the world. 

NEW MEMBERS CLASS

We believe God has called all Christ followers to belong to a local church, and to call that church home. If you're thinking about making Venture your church home, sign up for our next Discover Venture class. This facilitated small group setting will walk you through our "Catch the Vision" curriculum, which explains our vision, mission, philosophy, and strategy to express God’s love and hope to our world. 

SMALL GROUPS

As Christians, we are designed by God to do life in community. Community is best represented by a small group of people committed to relationship, growing spiritually, and serving others. We have Small Groups that meet throughout the Bay Area during the week. We also have Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies throughout the week, as well as other classes and studies during weekend services. 

MINISTRIES

Our hope is that everyone would be connected to the church in a meaningful way to encourage your spiritual growth. We have TON’s of ministries to meet you right where are at – different life-stages, men and women, support and care, and much more.  Take a look and join in!

SERVE

Whether you're serving with a ministry here at Venture, in our local community, or internationally on a mission trip, you'll find a place where you can use your unique gifts and help show Christ's love to others, while building strong friendships and having a blast!
