To walk with families into a growing relationship with Jesus.

What to expect:

As soon as you walk onto River Valley’s campus you can expect to have a children’s area that is EASY to find, and easy to check your kids into.

You will find a team of Bridge Builders excited to see you and your children. You might notice things get a little wild once you step into City Kids. We believe that worship can be LOUD and FUN and MEANINGFUL.

You can expect that your children’s SAFETY is our priority. We have a Safety Team that patrols the area the entire service. Doors are locked, and only a parent with the matching security tag can retrieve their child. All of our Bridge Builders are background checked and trained to make sure that not only are your children safe and having fun, they are learning too!

You see, we believe that your children are FUTURE WORLD CHANGERS and it’s our goal to help and equip you to completely invest in them!


Checking In

We have an easy to use sign-in system to help us keep track of all our students and their parents who check them in. Check in will be available 15 minutes before service starts. When you sign in for the first time a Bridge Builder will get some vital information from you about yourself and your child. You will receive a tag for your student, and one for you, this is your ticket to pick your child up when service is over. If something happens during service where we need to reach you, we will first send an SMS text message to your phone, if for some reason you don’t receive that, there will be a code on your security tag that will flash on the screens in the main worship area.

Want to skip all the paperwork your first Sunday?


What to bring:

For children in the nursery area, make sure you have a diaper bag, or just some spare diapers and wipes. (don’t worry if you forget, we have extras just in case) You can feel free to bring sippy cups/ bottles, snacks and any comfort item your child might want. We will have a nut-free snack available as well.

For elementary aged (potty trained) children- bring your kid! That’s it! Make sure that they are comfortably dressed to dance, run, jump, praise and generally be a kid!
