We created a special "Prayground" area recently in the worship center where the younger children can quietly play with soft toys, puzzles, books and crafts during the worship service. Parents are encouraged to sit in that area with their children or close by. The children are encouraged to participate in worship through coming forward for the message for young disciples, collecting "Change for Change" during the offering and joining their parents in receiving communion.
River Glen's nursery is available for families with children ages birth to 4 years old during Sunday service. It is located downstairs and is staffed by qualified, adult volunteer parents and a trained helper.
Sunday school for children ages 4 through 5th grade takes place during worship every Sunday. Children attend the first part of the service with their families where they will receive a message for young disciples, after which they go downstairs for their own lesson and activities. During the summer their time downstairs is shortened to the period during the sermon, after which they come back upstairs to finish the service with their parents.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Vacation Bible School (VBS) at River Glen takes place during the summer and is a fun way for kids entering Kindergarten through 5th grade to learn and have fun together! VBS is led by our Director of Children and Youth Ministries, and typically runs Monday - Friday from 9:00 am to noon. There is a minimal fee to register your child for VBS. Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity! Please contact the church office for more details.
