CHILDREN’S AND FAMILY MINISTRY
At Riverside Church we want to see children energized by faith and families connecting with God and one another in the journey of life. We believe that the life of faith is not a set of rules but rather an adventure in loving and serving and discovering the goodness of God. Through fun and interactive experiences, we seek to provide ministries that support the spiritual journey of children and their families.
Sunday School for kids (3 years through 5th grade) is during the 2nd half of the 9:15 service. We read scripture, play games and chat about life! We currently ask our students and teachers to wear a mask during Sunday School. Parents sign in their children in the sanctuary as they arrive for the 9:15 service, and following the children’s message in worship, children are dismissed for Sunday School. If you would like to know more about our Sunday School program, please email us!
We are familiar with the studies that show that children who worship with their parents are more likely to practice their faith as adults. So, we love seeing children sing and pray with us! Children are welcome in all three of our worship services at 9:15 am and 10:30am in our Sanctuary and 11:45am Español en el Sanctuario. We have a children’s message in worship during our weekly services to make the Bible passage come alive for children and all those who are young-at-heart. We have children’s worship packs available at all 3 services to give little ones something to do during the sermon time, play mats between seating rows to give kids room to spread out for quiet play, and a wiggle room in the back of the sanctuary for kids who are a little too squirmy for mom and dad’s comfort. At the 9:15 service, parents may choose to send children 3 years through 5th grade to Sunday School during the sermon.
Join us for Riverside’s FREE Day Camp for children.
PreK thru rising 5th grade students are welcome.
Campers will enjoy live music, Crazy Games, Bible Stories, Snacks, Fun Crafts and Hanging out with Friends! All this centered around our theme, “God of Wonders”!
Adult & Teen Volunteers are a crucial part of Sonrise. It takes MANY volunteers to make this community event happen! Rising 6th Graders and older are welcome to volunteer at Sonrise.
