  • offering educational opportunities for families

 

Sunday Morning

Nursery for Infants and Toddlers

Nursery is available in Room 115 of the Preschool wing. Please sign your child in with the adult nursery attendant.

Due to children with food allergies, no food or snacks will be allowed in the nursery on Sundays.

Worshipping with Small Children

There is no in person worship at this time.

All quiet activity bags, books, and shareable items in the Narthex and Family Life Center have been removed for the foreseeable future. Feel free to bring items from home, if your child needs a quiet activity during worship. 

Children are welcome in all of our worship services! God loves the little children, and so do we! If there is ever a time that you feel your child needs a break, please feel free to use the nursery, Room 115 of the Preschool wing, during Sanctuary services and Room 151 in the Family Life Center during the Praise service.

Children's Message

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. Please don't feel your child is too young to be brought up to be a part of the message. Also, encourage your "older" children (through 5th grade) to participate. It is helpful to have children of various ages attend together. We hope to see more children participating in the Children's Message during worship.

For Service

Acolytes

As of Monday, March 16, we have temporarily discontinued all in person worship services, so 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.

 www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b48afa62c7-summer

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, Co-Director of Children and Family Ministry, at .

 

Questions you may have regarding any of these programs can be directed to the Co-Directors of Children and Family Ministry,
MaryAnn Unger or Lea Webb.

 

Fellowship for moms
