Welcome! We are so glad that you are here. We believe that children are valuable members of our church community and we can’t wait to meet you! Our rules in Sea of Life, adapted from Matthew 22:36-40, are: Love God, Love Each other and Love Yourself.
In the Sea of Life our vision is that every child at The River experiences the fullness of a relationship with God, equipping them to persevere in the faith. Our mission is to provide an environment that is engaging, loving and accepting of all children, giving them the discipline and Biblical foundation to personally experience Hope, Freedom and God.
When you enter the church, you will want to head left to check in with The Seashore, where registration happens. Please be sure to fill out an information sheet for your child on your first visit, as it is important that we have your contact information and know about any allergies. Our staff will direct you to the appropriate place in Sea of Life to take your child. You are then left to enjoy service downstairs with the other adults. We ask that you come pick up your child at the end of service.
We are currently using The Gospel Project Curriculum: "The Gospel Project for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything: heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story--God's story of redemption."
Our classrooms are Sea Turtles: 0-4 years old (Downstairs) and Stingrays: 5-12 years old (Upstairs).
Older kids are encouraged to join in the fun, whether that's as a student or teacher helper role. The choice is yours!
Just ask a Sea of Life team member how to get started.
Newly added to our program Movie Based Bible Study group for teens, 13-18 years old. This group will be meeting the 1st Friday of the month at The River upstairs in the Sea of Life kids area. Times will vary depending on the monthly study and permission slips are REQUIRED to participate. We will be pulling Biblical principles from movies that interest the kids involved in the study. Please see Cheryl Bradley for further details and information.
