River Life Kids Vision Statement
River Life Kids children’s ministry aims for the children of this church to have a genuine interest, hunger and a thirst for the Lord! Our heart is that they would be planted by the river all the days of their lives and that their roots would go down deep into the rock, which is our Lord Jesus Christ! 1 Corinthians 10:4.
We want them to know they can have their own relationship with the Lord, feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, know He is someone they can talk with, lean on and trust and that they can be used mightily for the kingdom of God, NOW!
River Life Kids Goals and Direction
We aim to: Practically equip and activate the children of this church to become a more functional part of this church body and of the
Kingdom of God. We aim to help children hear from the Lord, to be led by the Holy Spirit, to be functioning in all the Spiritual gifts God has for them and to be grounded in the Word of God!
We aim to: Create an atmosphere where the children can experience the Lord through foundational Bible teaching, family worship,
prayer, prophecy, allowing the Holy Spirit to come and be in charge, soaking in His presence and fun!
We aim to: Help release the children into their gifts, callings and destinies. Jeremiah 29:11. I really like how The Message version puts this:
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out, plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”
We aim to: Help empower parents to pastor their own children.
Children’s Ministries and Services Provided on Sunday
One thing you will notice that is a little different at River Life Fellowship Church is that during worship time, we encourage the entire family to worship together!
Children’s ministry is offered as an option, if you want your children to be in the main service during the preaching they are certainly welcome! We encourage the families to worship and learn together. We only ask that you use discernment with the little ones to decide whether or not you want to bring them back to the nursery/toddlers rooms during message times.
