Kids + Family

It's fun with a purpose

River West Kids partners with families as they raise the next generation of Christ-followers. It’s our desire that each child, from infancy through fifth grade, grows to know, love, and follow Jesus.


11am | Children’s Ministry

Infant-5th Grade

Each week we offer a safe and loving environment where kids have fun learning about Jesus through age-appropriate lessons and dedicated teachers. RSVP required.


Vacation Bible School 2021

VBS is back! This year we have an in-person AND an online option for participating. Join us as we launch into outer space and learn how The Heavens Declare the Glory of God. We’ll be orbiting space for five days of worship, crafts, games, stories, skits, and a whole lot of fun!

VBS is for children age 5 to entering 5th grade. Children must be 5 years old by September 1st to participate.

Registration for the in-person VBS opens on May 4th, 2021.

Cost is $25 per child.

Scholarships are available by contacting Lindsay at lindsay@riverwest.org prior to registering.

COVID-19 safety measures we’ll be practicing (subject to change by July VBS time):

  • Face coverings will be required indoors and outdoors.
  • Children will be in groups of 10 and not required to social distance within the group.
  • Each group will be distanced from other groups by 6 feet, both in the sanctuary large group setting and in classrooms.

4th + 5th Grade

Every Sunday, 4th + 5th graders have their own teaching time which is specifically geared for their age. We also host monthly fellowship events that help build healthy and fun community! The dates for these events are March 12, April 23, and May 21. To register for our next 4th + 5th Grade event, check out our event calendar.
