Nursery for Infants and Toddlers
Nursery is not open at this time.
Worshipping with Small Children
Children are welcome in all of our worship services! God loves the little children, and so do we!
All quiet activity bags, books, and shareable items in the Narthex and Family Life Center have been removed. Feel free to bring items from home, if your child needs a quiet activity during worship.
Our focus is to connect the theme and message of the day in a simpler way that children can understand and relate to on their level. At this time, please keep your children with you at your seats.
We are continuing to offer Sunday School virtually to the children and youth of RLC. All of the information is located on this website - under Ministries, on Sunday School for Kids webpage. You will need a password to access the next page, Virtual Sunday School. Check your email, or reach out to Lea Webb, or contact the church office ( , 919-851-7248).
Then, all you need is your Bible and an open heart with God!
For Children up to 4th Grade:
We are working through the curriculum, Simply Loved, from Group.
In this new unit, our Bible point is God guides us…and gives us what we need. We meet another Bible buddy, Radar, and learn the memory verse, Proverbs 3:5-6.
The video containing the lesson, songs, and message from our Bible buddy is available online on Sunday mornings. It will be available for a few weeks, so you can watch at home at a time that is convenient for your family and have a chance to catch up if you miss a week.
For Children, 5th-8th Grade:
We are working through the curriculum, Connect, by Sparkhouse.
Join us as we learn about God’s big story with Becky, Todd, and friends as they explore and retell stories from the Bible. Each week, we’ll dive into the Bible to see and explore Biblical themes through animated videos and hands-on activities.
Join Ms. Sandy via Zoom on Sunday at 9:30 am!
An email will be sent with the invite link.
The video will be available for a few weeks, so you have a chance to catch up if you miss a week.
Come join us for Sunday School fun!
Please contact Ms. Lea at with any questions.
Children's Church is not being held at this time.
Normally, it would be held during the 11:00 am Praise service in the Family Life Center. Children, ages 3-6, would be dismissed before the sermon for a 20 minute Bible lesson with corresponding crafts and songs. This is a time to help grow their faith.

Acolytes are not needed at this time.
Being an acolyte allows our youth, grades 5-8, to be actively involved in serving at RLC. You are able to sign up online for dates and worship times that work for your family.
Our practice is for 5th-8th grade students to serve as acolytes and be actively engaged during the service. Thus, allowing them to see the importance of worship. We hope you encourage and provide the opportunity for your child to regularly participate in this area of service.
Any questions or to schedule a brief training, please contact MaryAnn Unger, Director of Infant and Family Ministry, at .
