River Kids’ Values


We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.

Age Appropriateness

Our environments and lesson materials are taught in a way your child will understand.


Every child’s name tag is matched to a parent tag, every volunteer is background checked, and doors are locked to add an additional layer of safety.

Creative Bible Teaching

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.


Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, videos, and singing.

Safety & Check-In

River Hills is committed to keeping our children safe.  All of our volunteers are background checked and trained for their classroom.

Children are registered at one of our check-in stations.  Two name tags are issued: one for the child and one for the parent. When you pick up your child, the ministry volunteer will match the parental name tag to the child’s. No child is allowed to leave the classroom with anyone who does not have the matching tag.

Parents are contacted by silent pager if their child has been crying for more than 10 minutes, is ill or hurt.  If no pager was issued at check-in, the Ministry Director will locate the parents inside the service.

Wellness Policy

River Kids is committed to a healthy environment for our children. A child must be fever and symptom free for 24 hours to enter the classroom.  Symptoms would include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive coughing/sneezing, a questionable rash, open sore, or conjunctivitis (pink eye).
