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
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.
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:
- Persistent cough
- Heavy congestion
- Sore throat
- Swollen glands
- Colored discharge (from nose, eyes, or ears)
- 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!
Staying current with Riverside Kids is as easy as "1, 2, 3"!
