THE CHURCH OF TODAY
Everyone agrees that kids learn at a different level than adults. But there is also enormous value in immersing a child into a specific culture and language.
At River of Life your child will have the BEST OF BOTH! Sunday morning worship is the time we all come together and your child is immersed in the culture of your faith, learning the language, practice and feel of Christianity.
On Wednesday night, your child will learn at their own level the adult lesson of the past Sunday. It doesn't get any better than that! If this is new to you, keep reading for the complete picture of what to expect.
SUNDAY MORNING 9:30
Birth - 2 years old are invited to the nursery that is staffed with safety screened workers during the entire service. If you prefer to keep your baby with you, there is a parent viewing room at the back of the sanctuary.
3 years - 1st grade get to stay with you during the worship portion of the service. As you enter, they will receive a 'fun bag' that will be helpful should they get the wiggles. There is also a brief time in the service just for them to come up front and participate if they choose. Following worship, they may stay with you in service or attend an age appropriate class with safety screened children's staff.
2nd grade up are in the entire worship service. They receive a fun bag and may participate in a brief time in the service just for them to come up front if they choose. They are also provided with curriculum to help them follow along with the sermon.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT 6:45
Age appropriate groups are available for all children. Each group focuses on learning with emphasis on Bible lessons, prayer, memorization and application. Kids form great relationships and have a ton of fun in these groups!
There are also groups available for youth.
ADDED BONUS! The curriculum used for children is produced in house so that every age is on the same page. For more information on the Stonewall Builder curriculum follow the link below.
