Riverdale Kids

Every day children are surrounded by influences that are often in conflict with God's Word. Through many exciting children's programs in Kidz to the Kingdom, we are exposing them to the power of the Bible that challenges them and changes their lives! We are committed to reaching the next generation for Christ and teaching them to live for Him.

Kradle Kidz

The purpose of the Kradle Kidz Ministry is to minister to infants through 3 year olds by providing a spiritual foundation and spiritual training. We want our children to experience a positive introduction to Christianity and biblical concepts in a nurturing environment.

Kradle Kidz is a parent co-op ministry. Church members who have children using the nursery are asked to volunteer for one service a month. Additional members also volunteer their time.

To help us get to know your child and care for his or her needs:

  1. Register your child for each service. Information you provide will help us care for your little one. Please keep your portion of your child's identification label with you at all times. This number will be posted on the Power Point screen if we need to contact you during the service. You will also need this portion of the label in order to pick up your child. If someone else will be picking up your child, please give them the identifying label portion.
  2. Fill out a Care Card. The information on this card will allow teachers to care for your child in a way that helps him or her to feel “at home” in the nursery. Update the card as needed to keep us current on caring for your baby. This is especially important if your child develops allergies or other conditions that require special care.
  3. Please write your child's name on his or her diaper bag, cup, bottle, pacifier, etc. This will ensure that each child is given his or her own belongings.
  4. Don’t hesitate to remind us of your child's special needs. We want each child to feel individually loved—the same way Jesus loves each of us.

Kidz Korner

Pre-schoolers meet Sunday mornings at 9:45 am in grade-appropriate classrooms. These 3-, 4- and 5-year olds will be greeted by teachers who are enthusiastic and trained to teach your child about Jesus. During both Sunday school and worship, your child will learn basic truths about God's love, caring for others and being thankful.

Kidz Place

Kidz Place is for 1st through 4th graders and meets Sunday mornings at 9:45 am in grade-appropriate classrooms during the Bible Study Hour. This ministry is the foundation of our teaching and discipleship ministry. Your child will build relationships and friendships that will last for eternity.

Kidz Konnection

Worship time for 1st to 6th graders starts in the main church auditorium at 10:45 am where we participate in the regular Sunday morning service. Just before the sermon, we return to the Multi-Purpose Room and school classrooms for group sessions and Bible story time.

We want every child who participates in Kidz Konnection to grow up and say:

  • I need to make wise choices.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Kid Song

The main emphasis of our music program is to glorify God with our voices and to minister to others through music, drama and interpretive movement. These age-graded choirs—ages 3 through K-5 and 1st through 5th grades—have many opportunities to minister throughout the choir year of September through June.  Kid Song meets Wednesday evenings from 6:45 - 8:00 pm.

Kidz Summer Camp

Each year our children attend a Christian camp. Not only do the children have a thrilling week, they also get sound training from counselors and teachers who love the Lord. It is a summer highlight!
