New Here?

Thanks for stopping by

 

 
 

 

Thinking about coming on a Sunday Morning? Below is some helpful info:

When and Where do we meet?

We meet in the Nir Family YMCA at 2710 Market Street. There is plenty of parking in front of the YMCA. Enter through the covered sidewalk and double doors on the right side of the building. (Not through the large glass entry way to the left).
 
Main services are held in the gymnasium. Once you enter the building, the door to your immediate left in the lobby will take you to the gym.
 
You’ll also see our children’s check-in area in the lobby. If you have children 5th grade and under, feel free to sign them into a class at the check-in table. 
 
Every Sunday at 10am.  You can show up “right on time” or feel free to come a little early and enjoy a free cup of coffee and a little breakfast snack on us!

What is it like?

Each week, our rented space is transformed into an awesome place to connect with God and other people. Volunteers from our church show up early each week to create the environment and stick around after services to clean up.
 
There is a free coffee bar in the gym at the rear of our worship space. Help yourself.
On a typical week:
  • You’ll be welcomed from stage by one of our leaders.
  • Our band will lead us in a set of songs to God and about God.
  • There will be a time of teaching from the Bible and time for communion and reflection. Don’t worry, we’ll take the time to explain the whys and hows when the time 
  • If you’re a guest, we’d love to invite you to fill out a “New Here” card so you can let us know you came. As well as to stop by the coffee bar for a free gift from us.
  • There will be a volunteer at the exit door with a bucket for collecting any New Here cards, prayer cards, or other items we have have as part of the service that day.
  • The bucket is also a chance for Venture regulars to share their offerings and tithes to support the ministries of our church. Guests, are NOT expected to give any money. Our service is a free gift to anyone who needs it. 

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably. People on stage will probably be in jeans and a t-shirt.
 

What about my kids?

We have plenty for your kids to do. One of our core values is #KidsMatter. And we mean that! As you enter the building, pass through the front lobby and follow the hallway to the left. You’ll see a table for “Children’s Check-in” where a background checked volunteer will help you sign in your child for our Venture Kid’s classes. They will also direct you where to go from there. We’ve got classes for Newborns – 5th grade. Older kids should have a great time in the main session.
 
Our classes are in a “Secure Kids Zone” area. All of our volunteers have been NC background checked and trained. We also have trained security monitors who routinely patrol the kid’s area to ensure safety.
 
Our teaching team works hard to make sure the kid’s programming is age appropriate and substantive! We aim to raise a new generation of God Chasers!
 
Students 6th grade and older should have NO PROBLEM engaging in, understanding, and enjoying the same session that the adults are in. We do have to program for older kids during the week. Read more here.
