RIVERSIDE KIDS

The Family Ministry at Riverside is created with you and your kids in mind. Our goal in each of our environments is to partner with you as you lead your child into a growing friendship with Jesus. We are growing each ministry area to be exciting, creative, fun, and to capture your child’s imagination—all to be a catalyst for a memorable, impactful, and applicable experience each week!

6 WEEKS - 5 YEARS

KINDERGARTEN - 5TH GRADE

I'M NEW!

Please plan to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the service starts. When you arrive, look for the First Time Guests area in the lobby. We will greet your family there and register your kid(s) for the appropriate environment. We’ll give you a quick tour to show you the classroom where you will pick up your kid(s). 

 

Preschool Kids go directly to their classrooms. Elementary Kids will go with you to the main auditorium so you can worship together as a family.  Elementary Kids will be dismissed from there to go to large group and then to their classroom for small group, where you will pick them up after service. 

Sunday Mornings

SAFETY

We know your child’s safety is important to you and we share that concern. From matching parent and child security tags to ensuring that every volunteer is screened with an interview and a federal background check, we go to great lengths to ensure that each environment is a safe and enjoyable experience for you and your child.

SCHEDULE

Here at Riverside we believe it is important to worship as a family. Which will make our Sunday schedule look a little different than you might be used to. After you check in and drop off your preschool aged kids, we ask that you bring your elementary aged kids to the main auditorium with you.  They will be dismissed to large group after worship, during the announcement portion of the service. After service, you may pick them up in their small group classrooms. 

V.I.P. ROOM

As we encourage everyone at Riverside Church to Worship One, Serve One, our V.I.P. Room is  a place for elementary aged kids whose parents volunteer during either service or have a Life Group Sunday morning.

 

V.I.P. Room Hours

Serving first service:  8:45-9:20 AM

Serving second service: 10:30-11:25 AM

DROP OFF & PICK UP

After you have registered and/or checked in,  you and your child will be given matching security tags that are unique to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the nametag portion of the tag, which bears a code that matches your security code portion of the tag. During checkout, show your tag to your kids’s small group leader in order for your child to be released back to you.

 

If your child needs you during the service, we’ll contact you by displaying your family's last name on the large screen in our main auditorium.

HEALTH

We always want to protect your child and others from sickness and germ sharing to keep our little ones well. All areas and toys are cleaned regularly. For the protection of everyone involved, please allow your child to stay home and rest if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

- Fever

- Earache

- Persistent cough

- Heavy congestion

- Sore throat

- Swollen glands

- Colored discharge (from nose, eyes, or ears)

- Diarrhea

- Vomiting

- Unexplained rash or any skin infection

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms while in our care, we will contact you immediately to pick him or her up. We do not administer any type of medication. Please make sure your child is symptom-free for a period of 24 hours before you bring him/her Sunday morning. Thank you for your understanding!
