Riverside Kid's Ministry


Our mid-week program, Riverside KidMin, is designed to provide kids with age-appropriate learning experiences that allow them to know who Jesus is and what it means to have a relationship with Him. KidMin is for children grades PreK-5 and happens every Wednesday night at 6-7:30 p.m. (During the school year, September - May)

Every Wednesday, kids join with their peers to have fun, learn together in a fun setting and be able to express their talents through worship. 

            6:00 p.m. -  Music Time:  Join us in the Sanctuary for a great time of music and fun!

            6:30 p.m. - Bible Study & Activity: Come along with us as we explore all the great, adventurous stories of the Bible, create
fun crafts and play some exciting games! Led by Sharon Dixon in the room located next to the Nursery. 


Most parents join us for our dinner at 5:30 p.m. and drop of their children in the sanctuary at 6:00 p.m. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us in the church office or by emailing rvrsideinfo@mchsi.com

Kids Club

Kids Club is a great ministry for your children at Riverside! Kids Club is open to all children in the community grades Preschool thru fifth grade. The goal of Kids Club is to simply provide a welcoming environment for children to come and have a fun, safe place to hang out on Saturday nights. We provide dinner, a fun craft and an age appropriate movie. Parents can simply drop their children off in Peterson hall between 5:15-5:30 p.m. and pick them up at 8:30 p.m. Enjoy a date night on us!


If you would like more information about Kids Club, please email Beverly Duffy.

Kids Club occurs every second Saturday of the month at 5:30-8:30 p.m. (September - June)

Riverside Nursery

Our nursery is a great professionally-staffed ministry for children newborn to three years. Our nursery staff is CPR certified, and all of our staff and volunteers have been through child safety training and background checks.

Riverside Nursery is available during our 8:15 a.m. & 10:45 a.m. Sunday Services. We also offer nursery care during our Wednesday Night Alive ministry, 6:00-7:30 p.m. The nursery is split into two rooms, one for infants and the other for toddlers. The infant room is a quiet and peaceful place where mothers can sit, rock, and nurse their baby. 

If you have any questions about Riverside's Nursery, please send us an email or call the church office at 309-764-6721.
