Even though Journey has shifted to virtual ministry in the middle of the pandemic, Journey Kids is still going strong! We’re connecting every other Wednesday for Zoom small groups for preschoolers at 4pm and elementary at 5pm. Join small groups. We’re also doing some in-person events.

Join our next event on July 22nd from 5-7pm – Family Paddle at Pirates Coast Paddle in Newport Beach! Families can pack up dinner and a blanket and enjoy dinner together after paddleboarding.  The cost of this event will be $20 per family.  You do not have to have any experience paddleboarding just a good sense of humor and a desire to have fun learning. REGISTER HERE.

  • Engaging, faith-growing lessons for kids
  • Safe classroom environments
  • Screened volunteers
  • Kids check-in system
  • Celebration of important milestones

Family Connection:

  • Parent Room for nursing families
  • Engaging Parenting Resources

  • Adult small groups

If you are considering a visit to Journey Church, here is some helpful information about Journey Kids. We look forward to meeting you!

  • We offer classes for kids of all abilities from infants – 5th grade at both services (9:15 and 11:00)
  • Kids Check-In is located near the front entrance of the church
  • Sign your child in at the check-in station to get their name tags
  • our welcome team will help you find your classroom(s) and answer any questions you have
  • Trained and screened volunteers will be ready for your child inside the classrooms.  All of our volunteers must complete a background check prior to serving in the classroom.

Each classroom environment invites kids into an engaging setting focused on God’s Word as Kids learn that they are deeply loved by God, to love God and Others.

  • Nursery – Infants to 3 years
    We provide a safe & loving environment for little ones as they begin to experience God.  We realize that this is a big step for young parents to put their baby in the care of others so we are tender and caring with our littles. We also have a Parent Room for moms, dads and their little ones, which is located on the right side of the main sanctuary.
  • Preschool- Pre K (3 years to kinder)
    We provide a safe & loving environment for preschoolers to learn, discover and explore.  Interactive activities help toddlers connect with the lesson of the day.  They begin learning: Who God is, God Made Me, and I Am Special.
  • Kindergarten- Second Grade
    Our early elementary kids are given a chance to learn and wonder about God. They have the opportunity to explore through hands-on activities, exciting worship, and discovery of God’s word.
  • Third-Fifth Grade 
    We provide a fun, age appropriate setting for our older elementary kids. Each Sunday, our kids will participate in worship together through a creative telling of the Bible story, singing together, participating in hands on response stations, small group time and relationship building.
