”In Deuteronomy 6:7 it shows that God’s plan for the home is that it is the primary place where kids are to learn about God. That’s why we believe that a child’s faith development should be home-based and church-supported. To that end, Rock Valley Chapel provides three important opportunities for our children to learn about God, trust in Jesus and grow in their walk as full disciples.
Show Kids the Big Picture of God’s Story
Immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
Chronological approach allows kids to see how the whole Bible points to Christ.
Spend equal time in the Old and New Testaments, learning how every story connects to the gospel.
Bible stories brought to life through creative teaching elements.
Family resources and age alignment make it easy for families to grow in the gospel together.
Children’s Sunday School is held during the worship service. Before the Scripture reading, all the children age 3 – 5th graders are dismissed to Sunday School.
Children love to learn and they have so many questions. Our children’s Sunday School classes are a perfect place for young hearts and minds to learn about who God is and how we can relate to him. Our classes are designed to challenge children to really get to know God by studying the Bible. We use age-appropriate curriculum that supplements the study of the Bible.
We offer two levels of classes for our children; Age 3 – 1st Grade; 2nd – 5th Graders. We ask our teachers to accomplish two core goals at each level. First, help our children understand what a particular biblical verse or passage means. We want to inculcate in our kids a love for God’s Scripture for a lifetime of study, growth and guidance. Second, we want to demonstrate to our children that the Bible is relevant for us today, so we try to demonstrate meaningful applications so our children view the Bible as a resource for how to navigate life’s challenges.
”“Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”DEUTERONOMY 6:7
NURSERY & TODDLERS:
Because we recognize how valuable your children are, we do not just provide childcare. Our Nursery Ministry desires to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child where his or her physical and emotional needs can be met while separated from you for a short time.
By doing so, we also hope to minister to you. While your child is being cared for, you can enjoy the fellowship of other adults, connecting with God, and developing your faith. We have separate rooms for Infants (birth – 18 months) and Toddlers (18 months – 3 years)
