Jesus said, "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for such belongs the kingdom of God." (Mark 10:14) RCC Kids wants to welcome children into a meaningful relationship with Jesus through community worship, gospel-centered teaching, healthy relationships, and a lot of fun!
Each Sunday we meet together during the Sunday worship service and special events are held throughout the year. We hope your child will join us!
What do I do on Sunday morning?
Before the service begins, check in your child at RCC Kids check-in station. Children infant through age 4 (not yet in kindergarten) can then head over to our nursery right away. School-aged children, kindergarten through 5th grade, will begin the service with their families in the sanctuary and are later dismissed just before the sermon to join us for Children's Church. After service, you will pick your child up at their classroom.
Who will teach or take care of my child?
All of our volunteers at RCC have attended for at least 6 months, been vetted by our leadership team, and have passed a federal background check. In every classroom there is at least 2 leaders present (sometimes more).
What if my child doesn't want me to leave?
We know that it's sometimes hard to step into a new environment without your trusted parent or guardian. If your child needs you to help them transition to class, we understand. Talk to their teacher or to our children's director, Amy O'Brien, and we will do everything we can to make them feel welcomed and safe.
My child has special needs, what do I do?
We love to welcome all children here at RCC. If your child has a special need that is helpful for us to know, talk to Amy O'Brien, and we will do everything we can to make church safe for them to engage.
I want my child to stay in the service the entire time, is that okay?
Your child is always welcome to stay in the entire service. Look for our special family seating to help!
Can I help?
We love to have our parents help lead here at RCC. If you are interested, please reach out to Amy O'Brien (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will take the next step for volunteering.
