More about Riverside Kids

We are passionate about creating a place for children (infants through 5th grade) to be known and loved. Our mission is to help kids come to know Jesus and encourage them as they grow in their faith. We do this by providing safe, age appropriate material for kids to learn from God’s word and have fun!

We can’t wait to meet your family!
