Journey Kids

Grow in Jesus

The purpose of the Journey Kids is to see children gather together and grow in their knowledge of God so they can have a growing relationship with Him. We do this by partnering with and equipping families to share Jesus with and disciple their children at home. 

We love seeing children come to understand the love that God has for them and come to a relationship with Jesus!

Learning About God

While parents attend the Worship Gathering on Sunday mornings, kids from birth through grade school gather in the Early Learning Center (ELC) area of the Atrium YMCA for age appropriate classes. Caring and loving adults help children learn and explore the Bible. 

As children go through our classes, they will learn about God, salvation, Jesus, Holy Spirit, the Bible, creation, family, people, community and world, and church throughout the books of the Bible. We learn through scripture, games, music and crafts. Parents receive a “1 Conversation” page each week so they can continue the discussion about what their kids learned that week and continue with Bible reading during the week.

Safe and Secure

We take the safety and security of your children very seriously. Therefore, all of our Journey Kids care providers must pass background checks and have a heart for kids and their families.

Journey Kids

Check-In

Please plan to spend 5-7 minutes checking them in on your first visit. We have some security questions we would like for you to fill out so we can take good of care of them just like you would. After that, you can relax knowing your children will be well taken care of! 

Resources for Kids

There’s a special Bible App just for kids, provided by YouVersion Bible. It’s a free app for Android, Apple, and Kindle devices.

Other Opportunities

Our goals are to help you disciple your child through “I’m a Christian Now Ministry” opportunities for children

In addition to our Sunday morning gathering, children have time together during community groups held during the week. In those groups, caring and loving adults continue to pour into the lives of these children. 

Other possible events for kids include: 

  • Vacation Bible School in June 
  • CentriKid or some other kids camp in July 
  • Monster Mash in October 
  • Happy Birthday Jesus Party in December
