At RiverKids, we believe the Bible should NEVER be boring, worship can be loud, and good leaders ALWAYS care.
The purpose of RiverKids is to connect all kids to a small group where they will unpack what it means to have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We want kids to see how God’s word fits in their everyday lives and how God's truth shows them how to live and build friendships that will last!

RIVERKIDS NURSERY AND PRE-K
Babies and Toddlers
Our environment for birth - preschool-aged kids is the place where your little ones are introduced to their Heavenly Father. That is the most important thing we do for our little ones at RiverKids.
Our goal is to make a FIRST IMPRESSION of Jesus in such a way that it makes a LASTING IMPRESSION on the heart of a child. Every week we have an incredible opportunity, through animated bible stories, vibrant activities and lively worship, to make a connection to our Heavenly Father and believe that:
- God MADE me
- God LOVES me
- Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever
Our environment for elementary-aged kids is place where our kids show up on Sunday mornings and realize that the Bible should NEVER be boring, that the best leaders ALWAYS care and friendships can be genuine and made to last a lifetime. We want to make sure that kids experience the joy of knowing their Heavenly Father!
By the time they enter middle school, our goal is that they will understand:
- 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
Everything that we teach flows from these Three Core Truths.
We believe in an interactive approach. So, plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every weekly RiverKids experience!
