This event is put on by the Children’s Ministry of River Road Church, Baptist. However, River Road Church Preschool Development Center families are invited to join RRCB families in fellowship and fun!

Worship Education for Kindergarteners
Sundays in May & June (dates TBD)

It’s important that we provide our kindergartners educational opportunities as they prepare to come to worship in the fall. For example, why do we worship, and what kinds of things do we do in worship. This will take place during the Sunday School hour where kindergarteners will go to the Sanctuary and our ministers will take 15 minutes to speak about different parts of worship. We will also provide educational resources for parents to continue the conversation about worship with their children at home. Children will meet in their classroom and be brought to the Sanctuary.
