River Kids

Nursery (0 - 24 months)

Our friendly and competent nursery team provides high-quality care for infants and toddlers in a loving and safe environment.

 

Pre-School (2 years - Pre-K)

River Pre-School classes are a great place to learn about Jesus! Children participate in hands on Bible lessons, fun crafts and active worship. From helping load the animals onto Noah’s ark to experiencing a thunderstorm in a boat with Jesus, we help bring the Bible to life each week.

 

Elementary (K - 6th Grade)

We are excited about teaching the next generation about Jesus! Our Sunday programs equip kids from kindergarten through sixth grade with basic truths. When kids graduate from our children's program we want them to have experienced and own three basic truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52 :

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated. 

We reinforce these truths each week through curriculum here at church, but also send home activities that you can do as a family to continue learning throughout the week.

River Youth

Every river needs an outlet. It’s the part of the river (or any other body of water, for that matter) where the water escapes into another body of water. Ultimately (as we all learned from Finding Nemo), “all drains leads to the ocean.”

 

Parents of teenagers know all-too-well how the river of life is quickly carrying their children toward the outlet into the bigger waters. The rivers aren’t always calm—there may be hidden rocks, strainers, or falls. Like a river guide, the leaders of Outlet Youth want to help teens (and their parents) navigate those waters. Even though the best guides tip the raft on occasion, priority number one is getting everyone back in the boat and moving down river again.

 

Sometimes youth find the river of life to be too intense and too extreme. Whether its Class-III or Class-VI, sometimes they need to get out of the river. They need an outlet. We’re here to be a safe Outlet for them by having low-key hangout times with their peers, opportunities to serve others, and (most importantly) strategies to help them learn about and grow in their Christian faith to equip them to be river guides of their own.
