J-Team, or Jesus Team, is a once a month social opportunity for 3rd-5th graders, where the children can fellowship and have fun with other kids from church.

J-Team participants had a great time painting Christmas ornaments at Ceramic Lounge during the November J-Team meeting!   The ornaments are now back at the church and ready to be picked up!     Ornaments will be in Brown Street Chapel (room 204) and can be picked up anytime between 9 am and noon beginning Sunday November 26th!

Our December J-Team meeting will be on December 10th 2-4 pm.  We will meet at Urban Air, located at 15407 Long Vista Dr, Austin, TX 78728.   We have been to Urban Air the last two years and it has been a great time for all!   Your child will not want to miss it!   Please RSVP to Tammy@fumc-rr.org.

The activities are once a month on Sunday afternoon, usually from 2 pm and last until 4 pm.   J-Team provides an opportunity for 3rd-5th graders to develop relationships in a fun, social environment.  It prepares older elementary children for the later transition into our Youth program.  Except for the kick-off, J-TEAM events are drop-off.  J-Team events are planned and facilitated by parents, so we will ask you to volunteer for one month to plan and chaperone.  Children’s Ministry staff will be available to assist with planning and will attend the events.  J-Team may be held on campus or off-site for a specified activity.   Late drop-off or early pick-up is okay…we know how busy things can get.  Please make sure to sign in and sign out with Tammy Parks, or other First Church staff member when dropping off and picking up your children.

Requirements for attendance at J-TEAM events: 

  • Parent must sign in and sign out each child and complete a J Team Reg Form 2017_18  if a current registration is not on file.
  • Parents must come inside to drop children off and sign them out!
