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 for the foreseeable future. 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.
Join us for Sunday School from 9:15 to 10:15 am! Classes are available for children 3 years old through 5th grade and held September through May. Nursery not available at this time.
RM 123 - 3 and 4 year olds

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, Children's Church is not being held at this time.
During normal circumstances, it would be held during the 10:45 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.
For more information or if you are interested in assisting with Children's Church, contact Lea Webb, Director of Children’s Ministry, at
Children's Church in the Summer!
Because it is summertime, we will be talking about water in the Bible. We are using "H2Oh! God keeps His Promises" from Concordia Publishing.
Help continue the growth of the younger children with an easy story and a short craft, just like if they were in children's church at RLC.

Usually, this event is for First Communion Students, their parents, and family members. Unfortunately, the event scheduled for Wednesday, April 8, 2020 from 6:00-8:30 pm in Family Life Center was cancelled due to COVID-19. It will not be rescheduled for this year.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)
Thank you for joining us
for our BOLT Backyard VBS Adventure!
We hope the week brought you and your family fun and Vacation Bible School excitement. With each daily activity and story, I hope your faith has continued to grow stronger with Jesus.
If you were late to the party, got distracted one day, or just want to revisit a favorite game or activity, you are in luck! All information will remain available on the Vacation Bible School webpage throughout the month of August (rlcary.org/ministries/vacation-bible-school).

Due to COVID-19 conditions, 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 .
