Welcome! We are so glad you’re here!CWS1

Every Sunday all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand and make it a priority as we pray and prepare for each Sunday

We would love to see you and your family visit RDFkidz our Rose Drive Friends Children’s Ministry this Sunday.
Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

Feel free to explore the menu above to see what we have to offer in RDFkidz.

Questions? Below, we’ve answered some questions you may have, but we’d love to hear from you!
Contact our Children’s Pastor, Andy Smith at AndyS@rdf.org or our Children’s Director, Kari Wallace at KariW@rdf.org.


Your First VisitCWS4

Tell us you’re new so we can help. We will meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our friendly volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
We will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.

How Check-In WorksCWS3

Your child is SUPER important to us! You may check in your child at the Connection Center Station. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the nametag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag and sign your child out in order for your child to be released back to you.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will text you through your smart phone. We ask that you exit the sanctuary and head directly to your child’s room

CWS6On The Way Home

On your way home, we want you to ask your child questions like, “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?” It’s our aim that every child has a thoughtful and positive answer to these two questions, every week!

Safety

Your child’s safety is our first priority. All RDFkidz volunteers are screened with an interview and federal background check as well as our own security team monitors every courtyard and hallway to ensure your child’s safety. Every child’s nametag is matched to a parent-identification number.

Here’s What We Value!
Relationships
We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group.
For this reason, our Preschool and elementary programs will spend an impactful time in a small group setting after their large group interactive Bible story teaching

Creative & Vulnerable Bible Teaching
The Bible is the most amazing, exhilarating, profound book ever written!
We strive to bring its stories to life through creative teachings, story telling, and interactive discussion that keep children engaged and on the edge of their seat!
We want all children to love God, love His word and understand the value of applying it
to their lives.

Fun
Kids love fun! Shoot! here at RDFkidz ministry we love fun!
We realize that when kids have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. And we promise, they will want to come back!
We not only value but make a priority to creating fun ways for kids to learn about Jesus, including intensely fun and age-appropriate games, activities, singing, and even some live-acting from time to time.
