RAISING DISCIPLES

 

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.

 
 

We love knowing our children can grow up within the church and build Christian friendships within the church family.

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. 

The children's lesson is always good for entertainment.

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 focuses on teaching our children the basics of the faith.

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.

PLAY DATES

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.

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Our children are invited to join their parents once a month at their Community Group to pray, eat, and enjoy time together.

FATHER/CHILD EVENTS

Every year ManTime provides two father/child events. We go canoeing in June and to a Texas Rangers game in early October.  

 

As our children grow we want to see them own the faith that has been presented to them and trust in the promises of the gospel.

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.
