Children’s Ministry

Nursery

WHO: Ages 6 Weeks – 2 Years Old
WHEN: Sunday mornings, 9 and 11, and Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: River Kids-Room 1

One of the most important relationships that you have in life is the relationship you have with your children. Every parent’s primary concern is the care and security of their little ones. At River Kids, we have that same primary concern. Our nursery is a safe, nurturing environment coordinated by people who love kids! Each week, they’ll be welcomed and taught fun lessons that are biblically-based. We’d love to have your kids be a part of the River Kids experience.

Preschool

WHO: Ages 3-4 Years Old
WHEN: Sunday mornings, 9 and 11, and Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: River Kids-Room 2

Imagine being on the battlefield when David slew Goliath. Or imagine helping Noah and his family gather all the animals into the ark before the storm. Young explorers journey through the Bible with music and lessons that lead kids in their growing relationship with God. Interactive lessons captivate their interest and inspire a love of God’s word. Sometimes we even use puppets and other dramatic presentations that capture the imagination to share exciting biblical stories that will impact their lives forever.

Elementary

WHO: Grades K-5th
WHEN: Sunday mornings, 9 and 11, and Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: River Kids-Room 3 & 4

As kids enter into their teens, we find it imperative to instill in them a greater understanding of who God is and how he seeks their service. Real-life lessons grounded in scripture encourage them to ask questions and receive instruction for growing in their faith.

Keeping Them Secure

All children are checked in with our Lamblist computer system. This ensures children get placed into their respective classrooms and assigned a unique adhesive-ticket that only their parents/guardians will receive. If you are needed to assist your child during a service, the name of the parent/guardian will be displayed on the dual screens (located above the stage within the sanctuary) in order to notify you. If your number appears, we ask that you exit quietly and report to your child’s room. Please bring your numbered ticket with you and do not send anyone else to pick them up, including a sibling.

Our nursery opens 30 minutes prior to each service and closes promptly 15 minutes after the final service. Please respect our hard-working nursery workers by abiding by these timelines. Qualified and trained security personnel are strategically stationed to ensure the safety and well-being of all children. We also ask that any items left with your child—particularly bags and bottle—be properly labeled. Favorite toys should be left at home.

Keeping Them Healthy

A healthy kid is a happy kid. We’re all about sharing, except when it comes to the latest virus or contagious rash! If your child is sick, please keep them home or, if appropriate, with you during the service.

Keeping Them Supervised

Imagine being the parents of 10 kids. Now multiply that number by 10. My guess is you would probably need a little help! We always need volunteers who have a desire to help plant seeds of righteousness in the lives of our kids. We would love to have you as a part of our volunteer staff.  If you are interested, please click here.
