Children are a valuable part of the community at Riverside UMC!!
There are lots of ways for children to get involved:
Sunday School – 9:00 & 10:30 AM
Riverside has Sunday School classes for Pre-School (3 & 4 yr. Olds) up through SR. High at 9:00 AM and up through 5th grade at 10:30 AM. We are very fortunate to have excellent teachers who have been with us many years.
Children’s Choir & Plays – Practice at 5:30 pm on Sundays (During school year only)
Does your child love to sing and dance? Come join our children’s choir! We put on 2 shows a year, and rotate singing in the services for the congregation to enjoy throughout the year. Contact Vicki Rich: 614-486-5201 or 614-330-4357 with any questions (or if you would like to help!)
Children in Worship
In addition to these activities children are welcome at all three services. For your convenience, there is a cry room in the back of the sanctuary (for the 9:00am service ) as well as rocking chairs in the back of the Fellowship Hall and speakers in the lounge (for the 10:30 service).
Nursery on Sunday morning
Our fully staffed nursery will provide excellent childcare for your children 4 years of age and younger during all services. Children are cared for by paid staff, assisted by trained volunteers in a safe, clean, fun, dedicated nursery. A paging system is provided for additional safety, comfort and security.
