A Fun & Safe Environment for Kids

When your child goes to class, you can be sure they are in a safe environment while they learn about God’s plan for their life. James River Kids is all about creating memories and building a relationship with God that lasts a lifetime. Service times are Sundays at 9:00am, 10:45am, and Wednesdays at 7:00pm.

Sunday Mornings

At James River Kids, we are passionate about presenting deep Biblical truth in crazy and creative ways that your kids will love! On Sunday mornings, kids will have a blast making new friends and learning God’s Word from funny skits, wacky games and amazing Bible teaching. With a dynamic mixture of large group and small group times, every Sunday morning is packed with fun interaction and personal connections, creating an atmosphere where kids experience God in a way they never will forget.

Wednesday Nights

Come join the party on Wednesday Nights at James River Kids- it’s the most important service of the week! While the adults experience the Wednesday night prayer meeting, the kids will enjoy a powerful service created to help them experience God’s presence and learn to live out His Word through prayer, worship, and lessons from the Bible. Wednesday nights also feature weekly themed parties and Club Journey Live – a kids’ stage show with hilarious characters who teach valuable lessons from God’s Word every week.

Parent FAQ’S

It’s my child’s first time attending James River Kids. How will they know where to go/what to do?

At James River Kids, we LOVE our first time visitors. First time visitors (otherwise known as VIPs) are given a special sticker at check-in to let us know they’ve never been here before. Our staff, teachers and students are trained to look for these stickers and make an extra effort in welcoming, comforting and helping VIPs. From the minute a child arrives at James River Kids to the minute they are picked up to go home, we want to make sure they have the most fun and easy experience possible.

My child is attending a service with a friend/family member who is in a different age group. Can they attend together in the same venue?

Because our curriculum is adapted in each venue to best fit the age group being taught, we encourage kids to attend the service in their appropriate age venue. However, if a child is uncomfortable attending alone, they may attend service with a friend or family member; we just ask that both children attend the service for the youngest child’s age group. This allows both children to fully understand and engage in the lesson being taught.

Are there any tools provided by James River Kids to help parents connect with what their children are learning in church?

Here are two great ways to stay connected to what your child is learning at James River Kids:

1. Follow us on Instagram and subscribe to James River Kids on YouTube. We post weekly about all the fun happening at James River Kids.

2. Check your email. The emails will give you details about the upcoming theme nights and events.

If I choose to attend one service and volunteer a second service at James River Church, what will my child do during the second service?

Many parents participate in more than one service at James River Church. Children who attend both services at James River Kids are pulled during the second service to attend our LIFT program. These children are given a snack and have an opportunity to connect with friends and have fun. LIFT consists of engaging games and activities and review of the week’s Bible lesson.

As a parent, can I be my child’s classroom teacher?

Many parents are involved with their children in James River Kids, and our team is always excited to welcome new volunteers who love pouring into the lives of their children. If you would like to become more involved, learn more about the steps to becoming a James River Kids volunteer here.
