It’s about a Partnership
We believe the church and the home both work individually to provide children with a BETTER FUTURE but when the home and church combine their influence, they can have a GREATER IMPACT.
We know that no one has more influence on the life of a child than the parent and so we desire to partner with you as you teach your children how to follow Jesus. It is our hope that what happens in our ministries will spark a spiritual conversation that will continue with your family throughout the week.
We have designed our Venture Kids environments with a nautical theme. Our goal is to Incite Wonder, Provoke Discovery, and Fuel Passion. These are interlocking essentials that build a child’s view of God, the world, and themselves. We pray that our kids learn to FOLLOW JESUS FOR LIFE.
The Dock is a pay area specifically created for kids to play and build new relationships with others as they play before each service.

Preschool (birth-age 5)
Our Preschool Ministry consists of three different environments that coincide with three different stages.
- Lullaby Cove | Infants – One-Year-Olds
- Backyard Beach | Two & Three-Year-Olds
- Tide Pool | Pre-Kindergarten/Four & Five-Year-Olds
This environment is designed for Infants through One-Year-Olds. The rooms feature a nautical nursery theme that we hope will give moms a cozy and warm feeling. Our babies and toddlers are prayed for and taught through fun activities that allow them to experience their first look at what it means to go to church and learn about Jesus.
This environment is designed for Two and Three-Year-Olds. The nautical adventure continues as kids enjoy a larger lesson full of hands-on activities and lots of movement. Two and three-year-olds begin to learn scripture, worship, pray, and listen to Bible stories. They practice being independent and become more active learners.
This environment is designed for pre-kindergarten Four and Five-Year-Olds. These kids will begin school soon and are eager to learn. Small group time is introduced at this age. Kids learn to share prayer needs and pray for each other. They also are able to begin connecting what they are learning about Jesus to their everyday lives. Learning is loud, a little messy, and always fun!
Kids (Grades K-3)
Kindergarten through Third Grade kids interact on Venture Island; an island environment designed to inspire kids to talk about their faith and pursue a relationship with God. Kids are placed in small groups and interact with leaders who have made a commitment to be a consistent voice in their lives. Everyone gathers together for a portion of the hour for a time of silly games, worship, and teaching, followed by small group application. We appeal to a child’s sense of fun and adventure!
Kids (Grades 4-6)
Fourth through Sixth Grade kids hang out in a space all their own on Sunday mornings. This pre-teen age still loves to play and be silly but they also desire authentic relationships and the opportunity to be known and have their questions answered. They are taking ownership of their faith and taking note of God’s role in their lives. They are passionate and ready to engage their lives in a mission to the world that is bigger than themselves.
