CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

OUR VISION
 
“To have a safe, fun, and exciting atmosphere where children come to know Jesus
and get connected to their God-given purpose!”
 
HERE AT ROADSIDE:
 
Join us each Sunday morning at KIDZ ZONE, where our teachers are at their stations ready to share their love and passion for the Lord with your child: 
 
Nursery (birth through 3 years) opens its doors at 10:15 AM.
 
RC Kidz Jr (3 to 6) opens its door at 10:15 AM, meeting in the Spartan classroom.
 
RC Kidz Church (Grades 1-5) opens its doors at 10:15 AM for pre-service games and activities in the multi-purpose room.  Class starts at 10:30.
 
Ignite (Grades 6-8) is dismissed from regular church after the offering and meets in the Liberty classroom.  
 
 
Imagine gifted communicators creatively teaching Bible lessons in a way that intrigues and engages children of all ages.  Kids hang on to every word of stories, then talk about how to apply a Biblical truth to their everyday lives.  Because we all learn differently, the learning experience at Roadside includes drama, video, fun activities, role play, games, and music that children think is cool.
 
KIDZ ZONE is a place to invite their friends.  It’s a place where they feel accepted and welcomed.  And regardless how the rest of the world treats them, they will hear encouraging words — never any comments that devalue or discourage.  They find Biblical community with each other.
 
KIDZ ZONE is not just information: it’s about seeing kids transformed by a real relationship with Jesus.  
It’s a place that will make a profound difference in their lives: where children begin a relationship with the Lord, learn how to become more Christ-like in child-appropriate ways, and find and develop their giftings to serve Him and each other.
