We love to create opportunities for our middle and high school students to build community and grow in their faith. Our volunteer leaders do a great job of coming alongside parents and families to help guide students in their walk with God. Here are a few of those opportunities.
Below is a list of what's going on:
Here 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 entryway 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.
What is it like?
Each week, our rented space is transformed by volunteers into an awesome place to connect with God and other people.
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
Followed by time for communion and reflection. Don’t worry, we’ll take the time to explain the whys and hows when the times come.
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.
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 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.
As you enter the building, you will see our children’s check-in area in the lobby. Our background-checked and trained volunteers will help you sign in your child for our Venture Kid’s classes.
They will also direct you where to go from there. We have classes for Newborns – 5th grade. Older kids should have a great time in the main session.
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!
