RVC Children's Ministry
At Red Village Church, we offer programming for children, birth to 8 years old. We provide a safe environment where the kids learn about Jesus and grow spiritually while parents attend the Sunday worship service. The children are divided into three classes: birth to 2.5 years (nursery), 2.5 to 5 years (toddlers/pre-school), and 5 to 8 years (children). Drop-off starts at 9:45 am and children are picked up immediately following the service.
Children are checked-in at the Children’s Welcome Table where they receive nametags and parents receive pagers by which they can be contacted during the service. Visitors fill out a form with contact information, special instructions, and allergy information about their child(ren). Parents then walk children to their respective classrooms.
Together, the ‘toddler’ and ‘children’ classes sing songs to worship Jesus starting at 10 am. Then, the classes separate to hear an age-appropiate, Gospel-centered lesson. The lesson is followed by other activities that reinforce Gospel truth including prayer, crafts, and games.
The nursery is a safe place where the children participate in age-appropiate activities including hearing Gospel-centered stories and singing songs. Each child is also prayed for specifically.
