Children’s Ministry

Here at The River, children are of the utmost importance to us because we know they are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3). We also know that raising a family can be daunting to say the least.  Add to that, the crazy culture that is constantly fighting for our children’s affections, hearts, and minds through media and every other avenue possible, we as parents can find ourselves overwhelmed.  And that’s why we’re here to help.

There is no greater privilege and honor than partnering with you as parents (Eph 6:4, Prov 22:6) to raise up a generation of Jesus loving, overcoming, confident, equipped believers that will change the world as we know it. In keeping with our mission, we desire to connect children to God and who He is, grow them in a relationship with their Creator by providing an environment where they are taught His Word, and raise them up to lead and be world changers by sowing biblical truths and Godly purpose in their hearts at a young age.

We work hard to ensure that our children’s ministry is a safe, clean, fun environment where we can execute all of the above and your children have a good time while doing it.  We obtain a background check on all volunteers and have at least two adults with the children at all times.


Babies from the age of 3 months to 24 months will have a safe, loving, and nurturing environment where they will enjoy toys, lots of baby jibberish and fun with other babies, and being played with and loved on through the constant care of our nursery volunteers.

Children’s Church

Children ages 2 through 5th grade will be taught age appropriate, multi-media curriculum where they will learn about who God is and how He works in the world.  This also includes exciting activities, snacks, scripture memory, crafts, lively music, and probably a little silliness!

MAN to MAN men’s ministry

All throughout the bible, men were dependent upon each other to win battles over tough situations.  Whether our pride likes to admit it or not, we need each other.  In Acts 4, the bible says the Spirit of God began to speak when the men got together with their own company. On the field, on the court, or in the trenches, it is important to know people got your back.     For more information on our next MAN to MAN meeting, contact us at


The CURRENT ~ young adult’s ministry

High school is over!  Now what?  College?  Career? Marriage? Travel Abroad?  Newfound freedom brings plenty of choices.  Choose wisely because these choices are major ones.  The Current will help you learn how to flow with God in making everyday life decisions that will impact your future.  Young adults, ages 18-25, who are determined to put God first, jump in The Current!  For more information, contact us at


PURE youth ministry

Pure:  free from extraneous elements of any kind; not diluted; having no faults; sinless

Never before has it been more important for teenagers to stand up and be bold in their faith for Jesus.  Romans 1:16  says “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. “  PURE is absolutely one hundred percent about being totally committed to God in every area of your life. For more information, contact us at


G-FORCE children’s ministry

The bible says to train up a child in the way that he or she should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.  There is one thing about training a child that is always true; it will not happen by accident.  We were full time children’s pastors for eleven years prior to becoming pastors of the River.  We have seen first hand the importance and effectiveness of keeping children involved in church.  K-Force is a fun and safe environment where kids are taught God’s Word through media, object lessons, drama, dance, puppets, crafts, games, annual special events, camps, and much more.  For more information, contact us at
