RiverBank Kids- 9:45 a.m. service

We have reopened children’s ministry for K-5 students during the 9:45 a.m. service (ONLY). While we would love to welcome all kids, we are working around several limitations at this time: COVID-19 concern, and limited volunteers. Please consider volunteering to serve in our children’s ministry. Things will look a bit different. Here is what to expect:

· Registration will be required, and space will be limited. Register your family each week at
· Your family will check-in together for service.
· At check-in, kids will be given preprinted name tags and parent tags. Kids will also have their temperature checked.
· Kids will remain with their family until the middle of worship (music) and will be dismissed to the lobby where they will be greeted by the RiverBank Kids team.
· Kids will be required to wear a mask and will be socially distanced in the classroom. We will be using what was the toddler room until the elementary space is made available downstairs.
· Kids will enjoy a socially distanced lesson, craft, and game. If time and weather permits, we will take the kids outside (behind the building) to play (masks may be removed for outdoor play).
· We will Zoom with families at home during the teaching portion of our time together. The Zoom link will be in your weekly RBKids email. Also, curriculum links will still be emailed to families every Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m., so that kids can enjoy the same lesson content that we will be offering at church.

Each week, Pastor Brad sends out a video communion devotional leading you in taking communion at home during the COVID restrictions. If you would like to receive this video, please send your request to:

Knowing Jesus drives me to get others to Jesus!
1. I have compassion for people I know who don’t know Jesus.
1. I have compassion for people I know who don’t know Jesus.
2. I take initiative to actively introduce people to Jesus.
Rick Warren
“If your theology allows careless unconcern for people around you headed for hell, your theology is demonic.”
1. I have compassion for people I know who don’t know Jesus.
2. I take initiative to actively introduce people to Jesus.
3. My actions will bring life change and glory to God.
