WE LOVE KIDS!

RH Kids is a loving community uniquely designed for your children!

Our desire is that every child, from birth through 5th grade, is personally known. The classroom teaching is directly from the Word of God and spoken in kid-friendly language. We want to partner with you as caregivers to help your child grow on their spiritual journey. Our goal is that all kids become more excited about following Jesus when they leave church on Sunday morning! We hope you and your family will join us on Sunday mornings as we gather together to learn how to think, love and live like Jesus.

What to Expect

Your children are invited to join us in RH Kids during the 9 or 11 AM Gatherings.

When you pull into the parking lot, look for the Family Entrance banner. We have special parking spots labeled for families with young children, located on the west side of the building (link to map). When you come through the Family Entrance the check-in desk is directly to your right. At the desk you and your child will be given matching security tags that will be used during check-out time, or should we need to contact you during the Gathering.

Small child with parentsEarly Childhood rooms are a safe, fun environment where children from newborn to toddlers build a solid foundation of faith through hands-on activities, interactive songs, movement, and creative storytelling. Our children are cared for by trained volunteers who have passed security and reference checks and we abide by healthy adult/child ratios.We begin introducing curriculum in our classes in Toddler 2. The lesson each week focuses on a key Biblical foundation and is communicated through storytelling and fun classroom activities.We look forward to partnering with you in sharing God’s love to the littlest member(s) of your family!

Child reading in classIt is our number one desire that your children become more excited about following Jesus when they leave church with you on Sunday morning! RH Kids is a place for your kids to come into a safe environment where the teaching is directly from the Word of God and spoken in kid-friendly language.Our Preschool Community Groups are what make the big church small! Here kids are divided into small groups beginning in Pre-K and meet with the same leaders every weekend to grow relationally and spiritually.

Children singing in churchOur hope for your 1st-5th grader is that they become more excited about following Jesus when they leave church with you on Sunday morning! RH Kids is a place for your kids to come into a safe environment where the teaching is directly from the Word of God and spoken in the language that kids understand.

Our Elementary Community Groups are what make the big church small! Here kids are divided by grade (and gender in 4th-5th grades) into small groups meeting each weekend with consistent leaders to grow relationally and spiritually.

At Rolling Hills, we want every child to feel welcomed, loved and secure.  Our Buddy Ministry exists to serve families and individuals in our community and church who are living with special needs. We are passionate about providing the best church experience for each of the families in the ministry!

The Buddy Ministry partners a volunteer “buddy” (one-on-one helper) with individuals needing mild to moderate support in order to participate in church teaching, worship and activities. A unique morning schedule is created for each child based on age, ability and needs.

THINGS TO KNOW

We would love to hear about your child! Contact Dayna Stamnes, Pre-School, Kindergarten and Buddy Pastor, today at 503.638.5900 or dayna.stamnes@rollinghills.org.

JOIN THE TEAM

This ministry is always looking for volunteers to partner with us as we serve and care for individuals living with special needs. If you would like to join the Buddy Team please email Dayna at dayna.stamnes@rollinghills.org.

What if the leaders need to contact me during the service?

The number of your security tag will appear on the digital reader boards located in the Worship Center and throughout the facility.

What kind of security check is used for volunteers?

Screening of volunteers includes a comprehensive application, as well as background and reference checks.

How do we keep children safe and secure in their classrooms?

One of the primary ways is by following child-to-adult ratios, which have been established to maintain a fun, yet safe learning environment. These ratios range from two children per adult in Early Childhood, to ten children per adult in Elementary.

What will my child be doing during the service?

Bible lessons are taught to all children starting with Toddlers. In Preschool and Elementary, we use music, drama, puppets and storytelling to teach the Bible creatively in a large group setting. Those age groups also break up into consistent small groups to dig a little bit deeper with their small group leader.

Serve on the RH Kids team!

RH Kids wouldn’t be possible without volunteers like you!
