Journey Kids Junior and Journey Kids
Journey Kids Junior is for children from newborn through preschool, and encompasses our Nursery class for babies through toddlers, and our PreK class for preschool age children. Journey Kids covers Kindergarten through 6th grade and is broken into our Elementary and Preteen environments. Elementary is for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade, while our 4th – 6th graders are in our Preteen room. All of our children, birth through 12th grade are taught using the Orange Curriculum. Learn more about Orange HERE.
It’s Just a Phase: Don’t Miss It
Each phase in a child’s life is unique. While your child will be the same person at each phase, what they like, how they act, how they think, and how you interact with them will change over time. We want to be a resource to parents as they navigate these ever changing waters. One way we do that is through the Parent Cue App. Orange and The Journey partner closely with parents using the Parent Cue app to assist parents in becoming the champion of their child’s faith. This is a free to you app available on both iOS and Android, and a wonderful resource in your parenting journey. Click HERE to learn more and download the app.
Three Basic Truths:
Journey Kids Junior
We want preschoolers to take a first look at who God is and understand these three basic truths. . .
– God made me.
– God loves me.
– Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
By the time a child leaves our Preteen class, they should know these 3 core truths:
– I can trust God no matter what
– I need to make the wise choice
– I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Check-in and safety
We want to ensure that your child remains safe as they learn about God’s love. We ask that all children go through check-in each week. Parents will receive a name tag that they will use to pick up their child at the end of services. Children receive a name tag that includes a matching number to ensure someone doesn’t get picked up by an unauthorized individual.
What can I expect on Sunday mornings?
You can expect that your child will be greeted by trained volunteers who have a heart for pouring God’s love into children. In our nursery, the children will be held, loved and played with, while the older toddlers will have a short lesson and craft they will be encouraged to participate in. In our PreK, Elementary, and Preteen classes, children will be led through age appropriate games, songs, videos, and activities that will keep them safe, entertained and engaged while learning about God’s love for them.
At our campus, we have a Parent Hub wall which includes several parenting books as well as kids books and devotionals for you to check out! You can even take a book home by scanning the QR code inside the books and filling out your information. We want to help you win with your kids!
