For Children 8 weeks old through Fifth Grade
When we think about children and how we connect with them here at Journey, there are two words that shape everything we do: Embrace & Engage. We Embrace children at a young age so that they know and feel a sense of love, safety and community, and we Engage children as they grow and develop so that they know they are valued and important.
Every child in our preschool or elementary environments is engaged through a large group gathering where we use video and technology to creatively communicate the love of Jesus. They are also connected through a small group, with a screened and trained leader, so that the ideas and concepts presented in their large gathering can be broken down and further explored. Small Group Leaders are the champions of Journey Kids as they help parents and families widen the circle of positive influence in the life of their children.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please email Chris Johnson, Journey Kids Director-Apopka.
Are You a First-Time Guest With Children?
If you are planning your first visit to Journey Christian Church, please sign up online for our children’s check-in system through a secure check-in system at http://go.kidcheck.com and click on the “Create Your KidCheck Account” tab to set up your family’s profile to provide all necessary information about your child (children), including allergies or special needs, and who is authorized to pick up your child.
The safety of your children is always one of our highest priorities, and this check-in system helps keep our environment as safe as possible. Providing this information securely online will help get your Sunday morning visit off to a good start.

Gadgets & Gizmos is a week-long program for elementary aged children (incoming Kindergarten through incoming 5th Grade as of August 2017) taking place the week of June 26th-30th.
(Sign-up buttons will appear and go live at noon on Monday, May 1. Please check back at that time.)
Gadgets & Gizmos will feature high energy music, games, crafts, activities, age appropriate teaching and loads of fun. This is going to be the most memorable week of the summer so do not miss out!
We are offering two sessions of Gadgets & Gizmos each day to maximize the number of children who may participate. Each child is only able to sign up for one session, either 9:00AM to 12:00PM in the morning, OR 6:00PM to 9:00PM at night. Whichever session you sign up for is the session you must attend all week.
Registration for Gadgets & Gizmos opens on Monday, May 1, at noon and closes by the end of the day on May 31st, or when it fills up, whichever comes first. The cost per child is $25.00 each and includes all materials for the week, a snack each day, and some awesome Gadgets & Gizmos swag. Please click the AM or PM session button below to register!
(Registration buttons will appear here and go live at noon on May 1)
We can not pull off this unforgettable event without volunteers who are just as crazy and excited as we are! We have plenty of opportunities at both sessions for people to help in a number of different capacities ranging from check-in to small group leaders to crafts and games.
No matter what you are good at or passionate about there is a spot for you to serve with us at Gadgets & Gizmos. Do you want to volunteer with us but you’re worried about what to do with your children who are too young to attend? Don’t be! We will have childcare for children of our volunteers ranging from babies through preschool. Childcare space is limited, so make sure and sign-up ASAP! Are all of your children going to be attending Gadgets and you aren’t sure what to do with all your free time? Volunteer with us! If you have a child attending Gadgets and you sign up to volunteer, your child may attend for FREE!
(Volunteer buttons will appear here and go live at noon on May 1)
