Come One, Come All

Here at Rockford Res, we have a vibrant children’s ministry that serves families with children of all ages. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not forbid them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” In keeping with His words, we begin to teach children about God even at a very young age, making their time spent here as meaningful as possible.

We meet during all Sunday-morning worship services, with check-in beginning 15 minutes prior to each service. We’re excited to have your child set sail with us on this adventure!

We provide engaging services in the Theater 252 room each week during all Sunday-morning worship services so that kids will learn the value of respecting authority, making wise choices, and trusting God no matter what.

Our small group format really encourages discussion and involvement from everyone!

Dedicating a child acknowledges God’s sovereignty not only over the child, but also Mom and Dad. Parents present their child before God and His people asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities.

Children as young as those in first grade may be ready to be baptized. We Believe is a one-time class for parents and children (grades 1 through 8) that teaches them how to take the next steps in their faith and what it means to be baptized.
