KIDS AND YOUTH
At River's Edge Community Church, the next generation is a high priority!
There are 3 goals for the kids and youth programs at River's Edge:
1. The first is that the kids HAVE FUN! Our volunteers have the ENERGY it takes to make sure the kids have a great time!
2. The second goal is that they LEARN SOMETHING. Teaching God's Word is the focus of our programs. We hope that through the weekly teachings we can help build a foundation in faith that will last a lifetime.
3. The third goal is that the kids are in a SAFE ENVIRONMENT. We hope to ease any worries a parent might have about safety with our electronic check-in system and diligent focus on making sure the rooms are clean and child-proof.
Because we are dedicated to providing a SAFE environment for every kid that comes into our kids ministry programs, we use a check-in system for kids age 0 - 5th grade. If you are new to River's Edge, you can save time by registering your child before you come for your first Sunday. Then all you have to do is show up, check them in, and let the fun begin!
OASIS YOUTH GROUP
Oasis Youth is for students in 6th-12th grade and is led by our Youth Pastor, Charlie. Not only does Oasis do fun events such as Nerf Wars, Hunger Games night, Couch nights, and Biggby outings, but they also dive into issues that teens are dealing with on a daily basis, such as dating, depression, anxiety, and peer pressure.
KINDERGARTEN - 5th grade
Edge Kidz is for kids grades K-5 and takes place during the entire worship service. Kids have time to hang out and play games, worship, hear a video lesson, and do an activity that goes along with the lesson. In the multi-purpose room they have plenty of room to run around and get out their energy!
Our Edge Totz room is for kids age 4-5. This group learns a short bible lesson followed by a craft, and game! They love working on the coloring sheets and are always proud of the craft they make! And of course, there is also plenty of time to play with the toys!
EDGE TINy TOTZ
The Edge Tiny Totz room is for kids age 2-3. This is a high energy group! The teachers and helpers focus on having fun while guiding the kids through a very simple bible message. They typically play a game and do a craft that has to do with the lesson for that day! If you are worried about your child "sitting still" for all these activities, don't worry! The atmosphere in this room is very easy going. Keeping the kids happy and safe is more of a priority then making sure everyone completes a craft the right way!
under 24 months
Our nursery is perfectly equipped for the youngest members of your family, and is for babies under 24 months old. We also have a cry room available if your little one isn't quite ready for the nursery yet where you can snuggle, feed, and rock them while still watching the worship service!
