Our Children’s Ministry exists to partner with parents to make disciples.
We believe our time on Sunday mornings is an amazing opportunity to help our kids deepen their love for God and His word. We are eager to partner with parents in providing tools to come alongside you as you teach and disciple your family.
When you entrust us with the care of your children during our Sunday service, it is our privilege to provide a fun, safe, engaging, and bible-centered Children’s Ministry for infants through elementary school-aged children.
Gospel Centered Curriculum
Over a three year period, our curriculum walks children through the entire Bible, focusing on Jesus as the hero from Genesis to Revelation. Lessons help children “find Jesus” in the Old Testament, and then follow Him in the New Testament. Each Sunday, children hear a Bible story, engage in object lessons that help emphasize teaching points, discuss practical application at an age appropriate level and practice memory verses.
RCC’s Children's Ministry welcomes children from birth through fifth grade.
Care for babies through preschoolers is available from the start of service on Sunday mornings.
Nursery - infants up to 18 months of age.
Toddler Class - children age 18 months through age 2.

Children in kindergarten through fifth grade attend worship with the entire congregation at the start of the service and are dismissed to class at the appropriate time.
Kindergarten Class - children in kindergarten, or those who turned 5 during the calendar year that corresponds to the beginning of the current school year.
Lower Elementary Class - children in first and second grade.
Upper Elementary Class - children in third through fifth grade.
Our Hope for RCC Kids
We want to see children develop a personal relationship with Jesus, recognizing that it is through faith in Him alone that we find salvation. As children move from class to class, we want to help them grow in their knowledge and understanding of God. We pray that children develop faith and wisdom, ultimately leading to transformed lives for Jesus. Encouraging children to grow in faith is best done in partnership with parents. If you have questions, need support or are looking for resources, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
RCC utilizes an electronic check-in system for all children participating in the Children’s Ministry. The first time you check your children in, you will be walked through a short registration process. Upon checking your children in, each child will receive a name tag and you will receive a receipt. If your child needs you during the service, you will be texted by a volunteer. Please keep your cell phone with you on vibrate during the service.
RCC Security Policy & Procedures
All of our children's ministry volunteers are interviewed and then screened by an external background check provided by Secure Search.
- Only Female volunteers are permitted to change diapers or assist preschool children in the bathroom. The bathroom door should remain open.
- Other than in exception cases, no volunteer should be alone one-on-one with a child.
- Parent paging is used to reach a parent if needed during the church service.
Encouraging Children to “ROCK”
We strive to create a positive, safe environment in our classroom by encouraging the kids to “ROCK,” which means that they should be:
Respectful – respect the teacher and classmates.
Obedient – obey the teacher the first time he/she speaks.
Cooperative – participate in activities with a cheerful disposition.
Kind – Keep our hands to ourselves and treat others how we would like to be treated.
In the event a child chooses not to ROCK, an age appropriate time-out will be utilized. A parent will be paged if the child is posing a safety hazard to him/herself or others.
