Saturdays @ 5:00pm | Sundays @ 8:05am, 9:30am, & 11:00am
Children are cared for by adults who want to give a first impression of their heavenly Father's love for each of them. As children move through the Nursery, volunteers are intentional in introducing them to three basic truths: God made me. God loves me. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
All children must be registered to enter a classroom. Classes open 15 minutes prior to each service. All families should go to the Ventureland check-in station located in the main lobby next to Guest Services. First time parents will fill out a visitor card and receive a name tag for their child.
The sticker name tag will indicate the age-appropriate classroom your child will attend. The name tag should be placed on the back of your child so it cannot be pulled off by his/her little hands.
The check-in attendant will show you where your child’s classroom is located. Our Nursery, The Gardens, is located on the main level to the left of Guest Services. See our New Here page for a Campus Guide map.
Yes! When you register your child, you will receive a sticker name tag for him/her and a parent name tag for yourself. This tag identifies you as the only person who can pick up your child. The child tag corresponds to the parent tag.
If your parent tag is lost or misplaced, you MUST see an attendant at Guest Services who will verify your identification. Children WILL NOT be released to anyone without a parent tag.
Ventureland Influencers have all passed a background check and have been trained to work with children. We strive to have the safest environment possible in all classrooms.
The parent tag you receive when registering your child will have a three digit number on it. If your child needs you for any reason during the service, your three-digit number will be posted on either side of the stage on the screens. If you see your number posted, check with the attendant at Guest Services immediately. If your child has a medical need, let us know when you are checking in your child and you will be given a pager each week.
Yes! You can like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Pinterest. In order to keep current, Ventureland is using many avenues of social media. This enables us to post pictures of all the great things that happen on the weekends and at special events. Please be advised that your child’s picture may be used on a social media site. Children will not be tagged or identified on these sites. If you do not want your child’s picture posted to any social media sites, please contact our Administrative Assistant.
We encourage you to bring a diaper bag with a change of clothes, diapers and a bottle or sippy cup. Please have bottles, cups and pacifiers labeled with your child’s name when you arrive.
Children with special needs are highly valued in Ventureland! Our disabilities ministry, HUGS, offers buddies for children who need “extra” one on one care to be successful in our classrooms. See our Disabilities page for more information about HUGS.
