Both Sunday Morning Services

KIDS MINISTRY

River Valley Kids Ministry exists to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus
who love one another and impact the world with the gospel.

Our weekend service times offer interactive classroom learning, engaging large group time and age-appropriate weekly lessons that build on one another using the Gospel Project curriculum. Children at River Valley explore how the whole Bible points to Jesus and the gospel with Christ-centered chronological Bible studies.

As a true partner to parents, our staff team comes alongside them to help raise up the next generation of Christ-followers, while providing valuable support to create a godly legacy in their families.

Stop by Kids Check-In Central this Sunday morning for classroom placement and opportunities to serve!

Sunday Mornings

Nursery

Not only is our Nursery a safe and welcoming place for little tykes
but it’s a place these little ones will be covered in prayer.

Toddler Age

The Toddler classroom provides our curious toddlers with an engaging
environment where they learn basic truths about God’s love for
them using the Gospel Project.

Preschool Age

This class builds on the basic truths learned in our Toddler room with hands-on,
fun activities that begin teaching stories from the Bible and explaining how they
all point to Jesus using the Gospel Project.

Elementary (K-5th Grade)

Using the Gospel Project, the kids learn the story of God’s plan
to save us from our sin through his Son Jesus. As they discover this truth,
they realize the Bible is their story, too. 

Midweek New City Catechism

We firmly believe in the validity of Scripture and the importance of it in our daily lives starting from a young age. We are excited to offer a midweek option for kids  that runs year round! The New City Catechism for Kids is a modern-day resource aimed at teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children grades 1-5. We encourage you to join us on these Wednesdays to begin to train up children in godliness, and be a part of setting them up for a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ for their entire lives.

There is no cost to you, and your kids will receive a Kids Bible and the New City Catechism Question and Answer booklet.

Safety

The safety of your kids is of the utmost importance to us at River Valley, and to everyone on the River Valley Kids Team. In order to maintain a safe and secure environment at River Valley Kids—for your kids and everyone else’s—it’s important that we all work together to follow the proper Check-In and Check-Out procedures that are in place.

Every child’s ID sticker is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an interview and  background check, and every hallway is monitored by security personnel.
