River City Kids!
We are passionate about providing an energetic, faith-filled service that is tailor-made for your kids. While we believe that parents have the responsibility and privilege of teaching their kids how to follow Jesus, we want to come alongside to provide support and encouragement for you in that role. It is our heart that you would be equipped and inspired to model a relationship with Jesus for your kids and teach them all throughout the week about who He is. Together, we believe that your kids will have everything they need to grow in their own relationship with Jesus!
We can't wait to meet you! Here's a few things you can look forward to with River City Kids:
•Safe, clean, fun environment
•Volunteers who are background checked, trained and equipped for Kids Ministry
•Kid-themed worship to encourage your kids to love Jesus with all their heart
•Energetic, fun, and relatable teaching that helps your kids learn Biblical truths

We believe that kids should love going to church. Our dream is to see them develop their own relationship with Jesus at a young age, grow in their faith alongside other kids, and discover how God wants to use their unique gifts and talents to bless others. River City Kids is a place where your kids can flourish.

River City LITTLES (6 Weeks - 2 Years)
The River City Littles room is divided into two separate classes. One for infants and crawlers, and one for kids who are walking. Our River City Little’s room also hosts our Mother’s Room (a comfortable, private area for feeding your child).
Your child will experience personal care from our well-trained team. We keep our nursery rooms ready for your little ones with age-appropriate toys that are thoroughly cleaned between services.
We know babies have specific needs and schedules, so when you bring your child to the classroom, we have an easy-to-use form that you can fill out to let our team know the feeding and sleeping needs your child has. We also take time to love and pray for your child each week.
River City MIDS (3 Years - Kindergarten)
Our River City Mids room is divided into two classes, one for 3s & 4s, and one for 5s & Kindergarten.
Our River City Mids classes are designed with your child in mind. From age-appropriate toys and special service elements just for them, our team is ready to care for and have fun with your little one during service.
In preschool and kindergarten, children start to engage more with their church experience. We help them interact with their friends, form relationships with their teachers, and build their faith in God. Each week they will engage with stories, video lessons, small groups, and worship songs that give them Biblical truths.
River City BIGS (1st Grade - 5th Grade)
In River City Bigs, your kiddos will have a ton of fun learning about Jesus and making friends! Most of their time is spent in their Small Group to give them the benefit of a consistent Group Leader and interaction with kids their age. Together, they learn about the Bible and how to have a relationship with God, memorize Scripture, and have fun developing friendships with each other.
•Engaging in Praise and Worship
We invite God’s presence into our lives through praise and worship, and we want your children to grow up experiencing the joy and benefit of worshiping Him.
Kids need different things at different ages, and we want to help your child understand and learn God’s Word at the right pace. Each year, they’ll grow by engaging in age-specific learning that is relevant and interesting to them.
•Making Friends in Their Grade Level
God designed us for community, and we want your kids to build healthy relationships with other kids their age. Making friends and growing alongside their peers is an important part of their spiritual growth.
•Memorizing God’s Word
God tells us to hide His Word in our hearts (Psalm 119:11). One of the most important ways we help your children build a biblical foundation for their lives is by filling their minds and hearts with God’s truth through Scripture memorization.
