Kids Life is a place where every child can come and experience the love of God, discover who they are in Christ, and learn to operate in the gifts God gave them. We offer age appropriate activities for children birth to 6th grade. We also offer several events throughout the year. See below!

Service Times/Locations

Birth up to 2 years old: Main level
3 years old – 6th grade: Lower level

SUNDAYS | 9 AM & 11 AM


We treasure the opportunity to minister to your child. Our teachers for nursery and 1-year-olds take the time to cuddle, play, sing, and pray with each little one. We take special care to make sure that your child’s every need is met. It is highly important to us that our parents know their children are safe and loved while they are in our care.


Our terrific two- and three-year-olds have so much fun discovering all that God has created. Whether through basic Bible stories or purposeful playtime, everything we do in class helps them learn they are part of God’s creation. His design is to be their best friend!


Our powerful preschoolers learn about how God loves them, cares for them, and desires to have a personal relationship with them. Class time is filled with wonderful worship, creative Bible stories, crazy crafts, and playful activities. These kids are ready to have fun and so are we!


Kids Life is a place where kids kindergarten through 6th grade learn biblical truths and how to apply them to their daily lives. Our elementary classes are packed with interactive teaching, high energy praise and tons of fun! The kids are hungry to know more about God and the purpose He has for them!

At The River, we believe baby & child dedication is an important time for every Christian family.

We preserve a special portion of service during the 4th Sunday of every other month, alternating with baptism months, at our 11AM service to dedicate these little ones.

Stay tuned! Kids Life always has something around the corner, and we’re revving up for our next events! Check back often!



All Kids Life volunteers and staff must go through an application process and have a nation-wide background check on file before they can serve in any ministry that involves Kids Life.


When checking in, each child will receive a name tag with a randomly generated code printed on it. Parent/guardian will be given a matching tag in order to pick up their child from a Kids Life classroom.


All of our classrooms are staffed with an adult per child ratio according to childcare licensing standards of the State of Washington. We are committed to providing careful supervision for all children participating in Kids Life.


Your child’s privacy will be maintained throughout their experience in Kids Life. A parent will be paged to administer any needed diaper changes and children in need of assistance in the restroom will have their parents paged to offer this assistance. For everyone’s safety, only a parent is permitted to go into the restroom with their child.


Children with special needs have the option to enjoy class in Room 103 on Wednesday nights. We understand that it’s important for all kids to be given a space to grow and learn, and sometimes a busy classroom setting can be overwhelming for those with special needs, or the necessary attention for certain kiddos may not be as readily available in a typical class environment. If you feel like this would be a good alternative for your child, ask us about it at the Connection Center or when checking in your child for class.


We are glad you are joining us! Please visit our check-in kiosks in the lobby to register yourself and your family.


On your first visit, one of our staff will be available to help you. Please be prepared to provide parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birth dates, contact information, and any additional information you would like for us to know (allergies, special needs, etc.). This information is kept on file to assist us in better serving you and your family.
