Children's Ministry at Riverside Community Church
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 spaces for kids to learn from God’s word and have fun! Alongside a weekly lesson, our kinder through fifth grade kids experience community through small group.
We can’t wait to meet your family!
Your First Visit
Here's what to expect when visiting Riverside Kids for the first time:
First, find the area marked for first-time check-ins. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Email Address
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
You can pre-register your family for a quicker check-in process. Click on the button below to get started.
How Check-in Works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s designated pickup area and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
Parent's Viewing Room
Riverside offers childcare during service for infants. But we also have a Parent's Viewing Room that is available for mothers and fathers with infants. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment.
