Children are an important part of our mission as a church. Our discipleship process of Cross, Community, Cultivate extends to our children – because we want them to love Jesus more than anything else.
The church is a family – one that's called to surround our children with the transforming love of Jesus.
The Cross | Learning about Jesus
While it's easier to send them to their own classroom, we'd rather have our children (ages 4 and older) in the worship service with us. We want them to grow up knowing they belong in God's family.
RPC KIDS | WORSHIP
In addition to being in the service with us, every week we invite children ages 4–9 to come up front for a children's lesson taught by one of our pastors. We teach them about God, sin, the church, the Scriptures, prayer, and what it means to follow Jesus. We use the New City Catechism.
RPC KIDS | CLASSES
Each year at Rockwall Pres we offer three semesters of discipleship classes for all ages from 10–11am. Whether it's teaching our preschoolers about Jesus or helping your middle-schooler learn what "identity in Christ" means for them, we point our kids to Jesus and his love for them.
Community | Loving Their Church Family
We want our children to grow up surrounded by a community that loves Jesus and one another.
Throughout the week, our parents gather at a local park for play dates and fellowship. It's a great way for parents and kids to connect.
Our children are invited to join their parents once a month at their Community Group to pray, eat, and enjoy time together.
Cultivate | Owning Their Faith
As our children grow we want them to embrace their faith in Jesus. Whether it's beginning to ask deeper questions about God, learning to pray on their own, or serving in global missions, we want our children to know Jesus has called them into his Big Story.
COINS FOR KIDS
During the Advent season we participate in Coins for Kids. RPC Kids collect coins which go directly to our partners in South Asia.
SERVING THE COMMUNITY
Each Community Group serves in the local community throughout the year. Children are invited to come along and serve as a family.
A Safe Environment
We take safety seriously and want all to parents have peace of mind as they drop off their children on Sunday mornings. Every volunteer serving in RPC Kids must meet two requirements before entering the classroom:
- Undergo a Background Check
- Complete the Child Protection Training course
We follow the guidelines provided by Protect My Ministry. If you have any questions regarding RPC Kids, please feel free to contact us at any time.
