A special note from our Children's Pastor, Braden:

Parents, if you need to talk or have questions, I'm here.

Kids, if you've got something to share or want to say hi, I'm also here.

Or hey, if the whole family wants to get in on it that's awesome as well too!

Whatever you need, I'm here for you, just let me know!


Even if you stay at home you can still have church for the whole family. Check out these videos for your kids. Watch it together or send them in the other room with an iPad while you watch your own message!

Early Childhood

  All Parents

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Real Kids' mission is to connect kids to the realness of God in a way that meets them where they're at. We want to empower parents to lead their kids in their faith journey by providing ideas and materials they can use during the week. We truly believe that we'll see the greatest impact in our kids when the church and family work together!

Visiting RLC with your kids? Let us know so we can be ready for you!


On Sundays you'll find age-appropriate classrooms for all kids Birth - 5th grade. When you walk in the doors, a member of our host team will show you exactly where your children will be and walk you through the fun things your kids will learn and do.

Every week, our kids learn about Jesus through interactive teaching, fun games, exciting worship, engaging videos, and small group leaders that connect on a personal level with them. Our prayer is that all of our children would come to know and share the realness of God, and that they would have fun doing it!  

NURSERY + TODDLERS. If your child is under 2years, you can check them in at our Kids Check-in station in the main entrance and then bring them to our Nursery (0-12mo) or Toddler Room (12-24mo), conveniently located in the lobby near the main auditorium.

2'S+3'S and 4'S+5'S. Check your child in at the Kids Check-in station in the main lobby entrance and drop them off right there in our Real KIDS Wing. They'll have a fun time with games, teaching, snacks and more.

REAL KIDS ELEMENTARY. K - 5th Grade Kids will join us in our Real KIDS Chapel in the Kids Wing. Alongside our amazing team of volunteers, they'll have a time of high-energy worship, fun teaching, games and small groups! (6th Graders join UNDIVIDED JHIGH @ 11am service)

SPECIAL NEEDS - We have some amazing trained volunteers who work with special-needs kids. Please let us know ahead of time what your child's needs are so we can effectively serve you.


We ask all of our volunteers to fill out a background check and begin the Growth Tracks process before moving forward. Email one of our Childrens Ministry staff below to get involved.
