KIDS MINISTRY

Our goal is to provide kids a welcoming, loving, and safe environment that lays a spiritual foundation for their lives. We desire to come alongside parents in this process, ultimately serving Jesus together.

Welcome to Riverbank!

We want to come alongside the parents of the kids who we minister to at each age-level to help them lay a spiritual foundation, so that in His timing, will lead their child into a personal relationship with Christ. By helping parents celebrate each stage of spiritual development, they can be encouraged and mentored as they lead their child towards a journey in faith. We provide a fun and safe environment where children ages birth through 5th grade are loved through Christ and learn what it means to love Him.



Nursery

The Nursery is for infants 6 weeks to young 2 year olds. Our goal is to give these infants the best care in a loving environment. All of our volunteers have been screened and have a heart to be Jesus to our littlest ones.



SonSeekers

SonSeekers is designed for older 2’s to 3s – to give preschool kids a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. The lessons keep it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. The activities tickle all the senses making mastering the concepts a blast. Our basic Truths: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever.



The Dock

The Dock is for 4s to kindergarten and continues on the theme of God Made Me, God Loves Me and Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever. The kids learn about worship and are introduced to group time. From fun activities and crafts to large group Bible story, worship and small group Bible time, it’s all part of the plan to help a child understand and believe our three key concepts by the time they are 5 years old.



Dive In

Dive In from 1st to 3rd grade is where we learn Jesus was all about relationships. Each week our goal is to build a meaningful relationship with the kids and their parents. Kids have an amazing ability to understand biblical truth and apply it to their lives. Every weekend is filled with a simple truth of God’s word and an exciting blend of worship, games and fun.



Pier 45

Pier 45 is for our 4th & 5th grades, thus the name. Our mission is for kids to encounter Christ each weekend  through reading the Word, worshiping, relevant teaching and groups. Our ministry philosophy is simple: We “Bring ‘em in, Build ‘em up and Send ‘em out.”



Buddy Crew

The Buddy Crew, our one-on-one buddy system, pairs dedicated volunteers with children with special needs during our weekend services. This allows the buddy to build a consistent and long-term relationship with one child & allows parents to participate in worship without worry.
