KIDS MINISTRIES

RC KIDZ CHURCH

 

"To have a safe, fun, and exciting atmosphere where children come to know Jesus and get connected to their

God-given purpose."

Join us each Sunday at RC Kidz Church where our teachers are at their stations ready to share with your child their love and passion for the Lord.  Available for both services: 9 AM and 11 AM!


BEFORE SERVICE

When you arrive, look for the Kidz Zone Check-In banner.  It's located to the left of the main entrance just down the walkway to double glass doors. That's where you'll register your child and receive a name tag for your children as well as a tag to return to our staff when you pick them up after service.  During the initial registration we'll ask for your contact info along with your child's name, age, grade, and any medical or dietary restrictions. This information helps us maintain the safety and security of your child. For your first time here, please leave yourself an extra ten minutes to sign in.  After that you'll be able to use the self-servicde computerized check-in system, entering your last name or phone number and then clicking on all the children you are checking-in.  Please note classroom doors are locked at 9:15 and 11:15 for the safety of your kids. 


DURING SERVICE

If we need to reach you during service, the number on your child's receipt will be flashed on the overhead screen in the sanctuary.  Please exit and proceed to your child's classroom area.


AFTER SERVICE

Proceed to the Kidz Zone Check-In Center and give your tag to one of our staff.  They will match it to your child's tag and then release your child.  


OUR CLASSES

RC Nursery for infants through age 2.  Doors open at 8:45 AM for the 9 AM service and 10:45 AM for the 11 AM service. Please check-in your child at our Kidz Zone Check-In Center.

Check-in for the 11 AM service starts at 10:30 AM and RC Kidz Jr. will stay here for the first portion of  RC Kidz Church and then be relelased to their own classroom where they'll have a snack, game, and lesson.

RC Middle, our 6th through 8th grade class, beginning in September, will meet Tuesday nights from 6-8 PM with RC Youth. They will have a combined time of games, food, and worship.  During this time, the groups split for an age-appropriate messsage or lesson and small group discussion time.


RC Youth, grades 9-12, meets Tuesday nights from 6 - 8 PM in the Kidz Church area where they have games, refreshments, live worship, a message from our pastor or other ministry leader, and small group discussion time.


OUR MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY

Imagine gifted communicators creatively teaching the Bible in a way that intrigues and engages kids of all ages.  Because we all learn differently, we use several different teaching styles in each lesson.  Our learning experience includes drama, video, fun activities, skits, games, discussion, crafts, and music.


RC Kidz Church is a place for kids to invite their friends. It's a place where they feel accepted and welcomed. And regardless of how they feel when they first arrive, here they'll hear encouraging words--never comments that devalue or discourage.  Here they find Biblical community.


RC Kidz Church is not just about information: it's about seeing kids enter into a real relationship with Jesus.  It's  application that leads to transformation.  It's where kids can begin a relationship with Jesus, learn how to become more Christ-like in child-appropriate ways, and find and develop their giftings to serve Him and each other.


WE CARE ABOUT YOUR CHILD'S SAFETY

All of our teachers and helpers go through a stringent on-boarding process: written application, personal interview, reference checks, a criminal background check, orientation meeting with the children's ministry director, and on-going training.
