We at River of Life value family and fellowship, and believe it is important for our children to see parents worshiping. Our Family Worship allows students to see a full body of believers singing and praising together, tithing, and greeting one another. Our worship leaders will announce when students age 4 - grade 6 may make their way to Discovery Land, assisted by our helpful teachers.
Our church has partnered with Discovery Land Global, a unique children’s ministry program that exists to equip the local church to reach and disciple kids for Christ. The Program’s year-round curriculum brings the Bible to life for kids.
Discovery Land curriculum was developed to teach children’s ministry students the following:
The big picture of the Old Testament and New Testament as a whole, unified revelation of God’s Truth to us
The Gospel of Jesus
Salvation by grace through faith as presented through the entire Bible
The Basics of Christianity
Life transformation through prayer, worship, evangelism, Scripture memory, baptism, communion, tithing, fellowship, serving, missions, etc.

AWANA reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love, and serve God. Themed nights throughout the year make Wednesday nights even more fun, and give the students the opportunity to express themselves. To many children, AWANA is the highlight of the week! They love their vests, the exciting games, and spending time with leaders and friends.
What can I expect?
Wednesday evenings are full of worship, games, and learning how to apply what the Bible says to your child’s everyday life as a student. We utilize handbooks to introduce students to practices that will help grow them as followers of Christ, such as bible study activities, scripture memorization, and evangelism opportunities.
Our gifted leaders walk alongside your child’s journey to a deeper relationship with God. We are so thankful for those who serve in our ministry and are wonderful examples to our students.
