Reopening RBK- Toddler and Preschool

Starting TODAY RiverBank Kids is piloting the reopening of toddler and preschool Sunday School rooms during our 9:45 a.m. worship service. Toddlers are any child 18 months through 2 years of age, and our preschool room will serve our 3, 4, and 5-year-olds. Distance will be in place to the best of our ability, with masks being required for preschoolers and any child in K-5. A detailed reopening plan with more information will be sent out to families the first of the week with more information, but if you have any questions, contact Taylor Starr at

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.

Cultivating Prayer- Church
This month our prayer focus is Here’s a prayer you can pray for our church’s leadership.
Almighty God, I come before You on behalf of our pastors and church leaders. Please crush any weapon formed against them. God, we pray that You will grant our leaders the spirit of Solomon so that they may have sound wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Lead them with the Holy Spirit. Counsel our pastors and church leaders so that they may do Your work and lead Your people. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
(Is. 54:17; 2 Chron. 1:10)
