In Children’s Ministry, our focus is on raising up a generation of lifelong disciples for Jesus Christ. In order to do this, we partner with and equip parents.


The Children’s Ministry weekend program, AKA “Kidventure”, is offered during all three adult worship services. Your child will feel welcomed and experience the love of Christ, learn more about God and His Word, and receive next steps for going deeper in their walk with God.


We offer a safe and loving nursery environment for infants and toddlers. Starting at pre-k, every child will experience a dynamic bible lesson using our 'Grow' curriculum.


Little people are a big deal to God! Here at Damascus Road Community Church, we recognize that your child was part of God’s plan from the beginning of time. It is our goal to help your child discover his/her purpose in His plan.

Online Class



Beginning September 13 and running through the end of November, Kidventure kids will have the opportunity to "hang out" with some of their peers in a Sunday morning virtual small group hosted by two amazing Kidventure small group leaders! Registration is required and is encouraged ASAP as space may be limited.



Your child is important to us.

On your first visit, please stop by our Welcome Desk so your child can receive a gift from us. Please have the following information ready for our secure check-in system: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child.



Reaching those with disabilities



The Haven is a community where everyone is welcomed: children, teens and adults with disabilities, along with their families and friends. The entire family is encouraged to participate, learn, have fun and share life together. In God's eyes, we are all God's special people with needs.

After enjoying Saturday evening worship together in the auditorium with our church family at Saturday evening service at 5pm, The Haven relocates to the Youth/Haven room for joyful play, sharing, music, video, art, prayer and Bible study. A simple, life-changing message is taught through adaptive teaching techniques using a Jesus-centered, interactive approach. The Haven desires to actively facilitate inclusion of individuals with disabilities into other church programs as appropriate.

For more information about HAVEN, contact our Director of Special Needs Ministry:


Your child’s safety is one of our top priorities. All volunteers pass a background check, and we have our own security team in place to ensure your child’s safety. We use a security tag system for child check-in and pick-up, and a paging system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the worship experience.


 We believe that every child is uniquely wired

and wonderfully made by God.



Every week new families are calling Damascus Road their church home. This means we have the joyful and crucial opportunity to invest the love and truth of Christ into more young minds and hearts.


Our volunteers in KIDVENTURE serve during weekend worship services in areas such as greeting, teaching, check-in and clean-up.
