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.


9am + 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.

Upcoming Events

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! We’ve had an amazing school year of 4th and 5th grade events and we look forward to starting up again in September with our annual Pool Party!

Family Events

We love hosting special events throughout the year that are geared toward families connecting with one another as well as other members of our community! To see which family events are coming up next, check out our event calendar.
