River Kids is a vital ministry in the church as it is our launch pad for training the next generation. River Kids demonstrates and teaches our children the love of Jesus in a safe and secure environment. We explain that God’s grace will sink into their hearts with a call for them to dedicate their lives to a companionship with Jesus. We teach them that God is a relational God that seeks us with his kindness and love.  River Kids provides a fun, welcoming environment that encourages children to flourish spiritually. Your child will be in one of our age-appropriate classes below:

  • Nursery - Infant to 2 years
  • Preschool - 2-4 years
  • Elementary - Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Parents are encouraged to arrive 10-15 minutes before service so they can check in their kids.  meet every Sunday morning at 10:30 during worship.  We also have nursery for babies and pre-schoolers.

RS MIDWEEK – River Students Midweek is an experience that will take place every Wednesday night. These gatherings are available to disciple students through the Word of God and allow them to develop deep friendships with other students. River Students Midweek will consist of powerful worship, a devotional message, and age-specific small groups. Starting Wednesday, August 10th.

SMALL GROUPS - We believe Small Groups provide the kind of life-giving environment where students find freedom and experience meaningful spiritual growth. By grouping into circles each week, they will be able to develop meaningful relationships and experience freedom in a new way.  Students will be encouraged to become leaders at their schools and eventually lead small groups in the 2023 semesters.  We believe God can use your student to make a difference in their lives of their peers.

INTENTIONAL EXPERIENCES - Along with River Students Midweek, we will also be offering local missions trips, youth camp, winter renewal, and leadership development small groups throughout the year to provide additional environments to help students grow in their walk with God.
