Children are a huge part of the life of Riverside United Methodist Church. We have many activities & programs for children of all ages to be a part of. Riverside Children Ministries is open to kids in Kindergarten thru 5 grade. And our nursery is open to children in pre-school or younger.
Our mid-week program, Alive, is designed to provide kids with age-appropriate learning experiences that allow them to know who Jesus is and what it means to have a relationship with Him. Alive is for kids grades PreK-5 and it happens every Wednesday night 6-7 pm.
Kids Club is a great ministry for your children at Riverside! Kids Club is open to all children in the community grades Preschool thru fifth grade. The goal of Kids Club is to simply provide a welcoming environment for children to come and have a fun, safe place to hang out on Saturday nights. We provide dinner, a fun craft and an age appropriate movie. Parents can simply drop their children off in Peterson hall between 5:15-5:30pm and pick them up at 8:30pm. Enjoy a date night on us!
Kids Club occurs every second Saturday of the month at 5:30-8:30 pm.
Our Nursery is a great professionally-staffed ministry for children newborn to three years. Our nursery staff is CPR certified and all of our staff and volunteers have been through child safety training and background checks.
Riverside Nursery is available during our 9:15am & 10:45am Sunday Services. We also offer nursery care during our Wednesday Night Alive ministry, 6:00-7:30pm. The nursery is split into two rooms, one for infants and the other for toddlers. The infant room is a quiet and peaceful place where mothers can sit, rock, and nurse their baby.
Sunday School is a cherished tradition of ours that began in the 1900’s. Families can drop off their kids in their classrooms at 9:30 am. Kids will join together in with their peers for a great Biblical learning experience.
