Venture Kids

Welcome to Venture Kids! Our mission is to help kids find and follow Jesus. Venture Kids is a fun and safe space for kids 5th grade and under to learn about Jesus. Through music, teaching, and small group interaction, kids learn about Jesus in a real and relevant way.

We offer two ways for your kids to jump in. Kids in grades K-3 can join us at our 9:30am service. If you are joining us in person, please be sure to register in advance.

5th graders have promoted to Middle School Ministry (Contact diane@venture.cc). 4th graders are encouraged to attend service with their parents through the summer. We will re-launch our preteen ministry in August.

HisKids is a special program for any child needing special assistance. For more information about this program, please reach out to lisa@venture.cc.

You can also stay connected by following us on social media!

VENTURE KIDS RESOURCES

To receive online content for birth through 5th grade, please register your family here:

Our children’s pastor, Anna Clagett, sends out weekly online content each Thursday.

HisKids

HisKids helps kids with a variety of special needs to experience God’s love. Children are paired with a buddy who is there to support them as needed. They will participate with their typical classroom for teaching, worship and activities as much as they are able, but will also access our dedicated HisKids classroom as needed. The HisKids team is ready to create a learning experience that is just right for them. Please contact our HisKids Lead, Lisa Carter, to learn more and to register your child for this program (lisa@venture.cc).

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

Our lower elementary students learn about God through an interactive Bible lesson and live worship. They reinforce and apply what they have learned as they build friendships with their small group leaders and peers through interaction, activities and prayer (megan@venture.cc).

Infants – Preschool

Kids are growing and learning in amazing ways at this stage in life. And we’re ready to introduce them to the wonder of the Word of God. Our weekly environment is designed especially for them. We give kids their first glimpse of what it’s like to be loved by Jesus. Babies are cared for, toddlers are loved on, and preschoolers experience worship and Bible teaching as a large group, then they break into smaller groups for age-specific activities.

4th and 5th Grade

Our 4th and 5th grade students explore what God has to say about topics that relate to them in this season of their lives. This class helps pre-teens learn how to take the next step in their own faith journey through personal reflection and application, service and leadership (megan@venture.cc).

Child Dedication & Baptism

Child dedication and child baptism are two ways that families and children show their commitment to Christ. We’d love to talk to you more about these. You can register by clicking on the following buttons.

KidVenture

KidVenture is a fun, creative, and relationally rich discipleship program where the Bible comes to life for kids through fun-filled learning and memorization. During 2021, KidVenture follows the Venture read through the New Testament in one-year reading plan, and incorporates kid-friendly resources so your family can grow together.

You can join us in person next fall on Wednesdays from 3:30-5pm. Registration details and registration link will be posted in July.

Safety & Security

We consider it a privilege and a calling to serve your family. You can rest assured your kids are in safe, capable hands. All our staff and volunteers are carefully trained and background-checked before serving in classrooms. In addition, all volunteers follow clear protocols to ensure each child’s safety.

We use a computerized check-in system at three stations on campus. When you arrive, volunteers will help you check in and show you to your child’s room. Check-in opens 20 minutes prior to each service.

Are you new to Venture? Tell us about your family so we can let you know about the resources we have for you and your family.

Volunteer With Us!

Venture Kids may be the most strategic and rewarding place in the church to serve! Kids are inquisitive and smart, and they are figuring out how a relationship with God can change their lives.

Some of our leaders love to teach or lead worship, but most of them just want to engage with kids, show them who Jesus is, and connect with other leaders. You don’t have to have any experience with kids- just a willing heart. If this describes you, take the first step here.
