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.
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY LEADER
Erin is a mother of 4, and married to Jason. She has had the joy of watching her children grow up in Sunday School, Children’s Church, VBS, and youth group. She loves to sit with young kids and share the Gospel.
“There is nothing as joyful as sitting with a child, and telling them that Jesus loves them.”
Sunday School begins at 9:00 AM. From 9:00 AM to 9:15 AM all the children age 4 – 5th graders spend time worshiping the Lord in organized singing. While the children are worshiping, our Sunday School teachers are praying for their upcoming teaching component, which begins at 9:15 and ends at 10:00 AM.
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 four levels of classes for our children; Age 4- Kindergarten; 1st – 2nd Graders; 3rd-4th Graders and 5th-6th 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)
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS):
Every summer Rock Valley Chapel offers a week long time of learning from the Bible that is fun, engaging and memorable. Check out this year’s VBS: TIME LAB as they travel through eternity past and eternity future to learn more about Jesus! Register children online HERE.
