Our vision for Children’s Ministry at The River Church is to provide a safe atmosphere where children can know God, encounter Him and walk out a supernaturally charged life. We desire to Create a place for our children to feel safe and loved; Celebrate each child as an individual with their own gifts and talents; and build place where children can learn to Contribute those gifts to their church, community, city and ultimately the world.
We believe that children know Him through His word; they encounter Him as we welcome the Holy Spirit and allow Him to move, enjoying Him through soaking and worship. We equip our children to live a faith-filled, powerful life and integrate them as vital members of our church in areas of ministry with adults (Greeting, Prayer Ministry, Worship, Dancing, Prophetic Ministry, and Prophetic Art) which will activate and release the Father’s love.
We see our children actively growing in the Father’s love and through that, discovering who He has made them to be; being secure in their identity in Christ Jesus- knowing that they are loved, accepted, important and powerful; learning and applying Biblical foundations; expecting the Holy Spirit to move through them to prophesy and heal the sick; developing excellent character.
We envision a vibrant, growing children’s department, supported by amazing, fun leaders using a variety of interactive resources to systematically and consistently promote the Word of God and allow children opportunities to hear it, see it, say it and do it.
We value the opportunity to have our children involved in worship with adults, allowing them to encounter God’s manifest presence through corporate worship with the exceptions of Nursery aged children, our kids stay in service during worship; after worship our children are released to their classes.
