River of Life has a vibrant, exciting and fun Children’s ministry called “Mighty Kids”. Children 6-12 years old meet in our Children’s Ministry Room located in our Annex building directly across from the church sanctuary. Children ages 0-6 meet in separate rooms in our sanctuary building. We have great bible lessons, fun praise and worship and FUN FUN FUN games. We have a “month of Sundays calendar” that lets all the kids know what snacks they have to look forward to. We have safe children’s areas and use an outside company “Protect My Ministry” to screen and background check all of our helpers. Ours is also a well children’s area we ask that a children showing symptoms, stay home, and not spread the “love”. We wipe down all of the areas and toys after each service. We hope to see you soon.
Nursery is for ages 0-2.
Nursery is provided for every service.
More than baby-sitting! We have baby Bible videos, songs, storybooks, games and lots and lots of fun! Our children are gifts from God and we pray over, love and bless them at every service. We want them to learn from the very beginning that God loves them and that they are special to Him.
Toddlers & Preschool ages 2-4 and 5-6
We have two preschool classrooms on Sunday the 2-4 year olds and the 5-6 year olds. Both use the same curriculum. DiscipleLand Curriculum offers an exciting look into Bible with stories, crafts, and skits that are easily teachable and fun! Take-home pages show what your kids are learning. Our older kids children’s church provides a skit every Sunday that is part of this curriculum and reinforces the lesson of the week. This gives our older children an opportunity to serve the younger kids and prepares them for leadership.
Children ages 7-12
This age group meets every Sunday morning in the Mighty Kids! room in the annex for worship, ministry, fun and games! Wednesday nights are set aside for smaller group ministry.
Safety is important to us.
An outside company “Protect My Ministry” has screened all of our children’s volunteers. This company searches through all national and local databases, and only those volunteers who have been properly cleared are allowed to work with our children.
We check our children in with a picture ID that is given to the parents/guardians. They must return with this ID when they retrieve their kids. We will not release the child/children to anyone else, and then only to adults.
We welcome you to come back with you child accompanied by one our children’s worker to checkout our kid’s rooms and help to acclimate your child/children upon arrival. After check in, you can peek in on them at any time to see how they are doing. All of our children’s rooms have windowed doors to allow parents to check in on their kids, and each of our classrooms is equipped with security cameras.
Well Kids Area
Ours is a WELL Children’s area. If your child has had any of these symptoms as well as a runny nose (not allergy related) in the last 24 hours, please keep them home. This is in keeping with all the safeguards that you would see at any school or daycare center. We want to do everything we can to continue to keel ALL of the kids safe and well.
