Worship Experiences 

We offer 3 Sunday Worship Experiences.

10:30am - Contemporary Service (Worship Center)

10:30am - Español Contemporary Service (Same sermon preached in Spanish. It meets in our Chapel.) 

5:30pm - JVLive (Contemporary but louder. Same sermon with opportunities for audience partcipation. Meets in the Warehouse.)

Loving child care is provided for all services through 3rd grade. 


Bible Study

We offer Small Group Bible Studies on Sunday Morning at 9:30 based on your age and stage of life. 


What to expect 

You will find most attendees dress casually (jeans, shorts, t-shirts, polo's etc...) Dress as nice or as casual as you like. We don't care and neither does Jesus.

You will discover that the services run anywhere from 70-90 minutes.

You will see church members leading in almost every capacity of the worship experience. We desire excellence but not at the expense of participation from members of JVBC. So you can expect a transparent, raw worship experience that most find refreshing.

You will hear a sermon that is relevant to your everyday life from the Bible. Our lead pastor preaches straight from the Bible and usually preaches through a book in the Bible.

You will have a ministry to meet your family's needs.

Jersey Village Biblical Counseling Ministry 

Jersey Village Baptist Church Counseling ministry is designed for members and attenders of JVBC as well as to other members of the community, and is offered for free. Our society is experiencing family breakdowns and personal problems in epidemic proportions as biblical values are being undermined and have come under attack. Many are in need of counsel, discipleship and mentoring in specialized ways. With this realization and for this reason, JVBC Counseling Ministry exists to both courageously and compassionately "speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15) and to assist in tangibly, practically and biblically addressing "issues" that keep people from experiencing wholeness and peace in life. No matter what issues the individual, married couple or family face, counselors at JVBC stand ready to assess those needs, provide biblical encouragement and instruction, apply love, grace and mercy, and help to implement the remedies God offers through His Word. The prescription is to teach those who come for counseling to apply biblical truth to virtually every inorganic (non-physical) problem they face. Counseling is available for adolescents (7-18 years old, with permission of and accompanied by parent(s)/guardian), single and married adults. Younger children's needs will be discussed and addressed by counselors with a specialization in early childhood. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult during counseling appointments. 

Who are the counselors?

All counselors have received formal training in biblical counseling from Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC), a national organization committed to the quality of biblical counseling offered by its members. They are also certified by ACBC as biblical counselors. They continue to avail themselves of ongoing training in the realm of biblical counseling. 

How do I make an appointment?

Initial Assessment


Worship is so much more than music. It is a way of life. True worship is obeying God during difficult circumstances. True worship is finding deep joy in the inherent nature of God and not misplacing our joy in the things of the world. At JVBC, it is our desire that these characteristics define our worship over a certain style of music. We do think music and all other elements of our services are important, but our prayer, more than anything else, is that in every congregational gathering you leave encouraged, challenged by the truth of God’s word, and more like Christ. If you are interested in worshiping with us, please take a look at our different worship experiences.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

Are you overwhelmed by the whirlwind of motherhood and looking for a place to find friendships, community and seasoned advice and support for you as a woman and mother? You can find all that and more at MOPS!

What is MOPS?

MOPS International exists to meet the needs of every mom — urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms — moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be! MOPS recognizes that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs. For over 35 years, MOPS has been creating authentic communities where moms gather together to experience encouragement, hope, support and spiritual growth — all to help them impact their families, communities and world.

What happens at a JVBC MOPS meeting?

At each MOPS meeting, the morning starts with a delicious, warm breakfast followed by a period of fellowship among the mothers. Afterwards there is  prayer, devotional or testimonial, and a guest speaker or craft. At the end of each meeting, the mothers break into small groups for a chance to have more personal discussions.

While you are enjoying a morning with other adults, your children ages infant (3 months+) through Kindergarten are cared for in our MOPPETS program. MOPPETS are divided into age appropriate groups where they participate in a planned curriculum under the guidance of wonderful, loving teachers. The MOPPETS program allows your children to interact socially with other children while participating in games, stories, crafts, music, and physical play. Infants younger than 3 months can stay with you at the meeting.

When and Where does Jersey Village Baptist MOPS meet?

MOPS meets the first and third Friday of each month from 9:30-11:30 am at Jersey Village Baptist Church. Mothers meet upstairs in Building F. MOPPETS are cared for in the church nursery located downstairs in Building F. Please contact Caitlin Wilson at Caitlin.j.wilson@gmail.com to get a copy of the current calendar to see our meeting dates. Click here to download a map of the church campus.

Is Jersey Village Baptist MOPS right for me?

If you are pregnant or are the mother of a child aged newborn through Kindergarten, enjoy making new friends and participating in adult conversations, want to share the joys and challenges of motherhood with others, like to occasionally get out of the house and eat a delicious breakfast, and you would love to do all of these things while your children are under the care of responsible adults, then Jersey Village Baptist MOPS is right for you!

Here is what some current and past members had to say about MOPS:

·       "MOPS is my community FAMILY!!! I had recently quit my job and was without SUPPORT for my new career as a mom. I knew all the best restaurants and things to do as a couple but I was at a loss for where to find resources and activities needed for my family and I. MOPS provided me a group of SISTERS in motherhood with FRIENDSHIP and KINDNESS!"

·       “MOPS has been a great way of meeting women who are dealing with the same challenges that I am as a mother and wife. We share similar experiences and it has placed me with women that I can relate to with what I am going through. I have made many lifelong friends throughout the group."

How do I Register for Jersey Village Baptist MOPS?

Our MOPS calendar follows the academic calendar, running from September through May each year. To register, complete the registration located here.
