Welcome to River Kids!

River Kids is the ministry for kids birth-6th grade at The Village Church. Our mission in River Kids is to partner with parents to help kids become fully engaged followers of Jesus Christ. We want to come alongside you as a parent to help you be the spiritual leader of your child.

Each week, we want kids to have fun, to learn about Jesus, and to build relationships with loving adults and other kids. To accomplish this, our program is divided into two different areas:

Kids Creek (birth – 4 years)
UpStream (K – 6th grade)

Each one of our environments uses technology, high-energy music, and creative Bible teaching to engage kids and help the Bible come to life. Our program is staffed with amazing River Kids volunteers that are fully trained with an approved background check. Our goal is for these leaders to be another voice that is saying the same thing that parents are saying as they build a loving relationship with your child and point them towards Jesus.

Upon arrival, children fill out a name tag at our check-in stations and are escorted by their parents to their small group classrooms. At this point, you will be greeted by our welcome team and checked into your small group. It’s important for you to know that if we need to get a hold of you during the worship service, we will do so through a parent alert. The number from your child’s name tag (you keep a copy when you check your child in) will appear on the screen in the auditorium letting you know that we need you for something.

We would love to have your child in River Kids and hope you visit us soon!
