Message from Ms. Michelle, Minister to Children

My maternity leave will be from Sept. 10th-Oct. 15th. We will have a rotation of substitutes for Children's Church and our 1st-3rd Sunday School class during that 6 week period. A big thank you to all the Moms who stepped up to help! Please contact Ms. Amy if you have any questions or concerns over anything in children's ministry while I am gone.

Michelle Richey, Minister to Children

Welcome to the children’s ministry at River Oaks Baptist Church! We are a loving church that welcomes all children with wide, open arms. One of the goals of our ministry is to plant the love and word of God in the hearts of every child. As we walk alongside them in discipleship and prayer, our goal is for all of our students to make Jesus their Lord and Savior, choosing to one day participate in believer’s baptism. We work towards this goal by using tools such as interactive and fun-filled Bible lessons in our Children's Church and Sunday School classes, Bible Drill, choir and other seasonal activities.

I hope to carry out the vision of equipping our children to become disciples and worshippers of Jesus Christ, to one day boldly spread the good news of the gospel to their generation. Would you join us Sunday mornings to see what it’s all about? We would love to have you!

For His Glory,
Michelle Richey

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."

Annual Children's Events

Valentine's Day Party

On a Sunday in mid-February, the children make Valentine crafts in various stations during our party in the M&M room during Children’s Church and Sunday School. There is a fun time in store for the children as they take part in a photo booth, games, lessons and a story telling time that teaches us of the love of Jesus. You don’t want to miss out on this memorable party!


 

 

Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt

The Saturday before Easter Sunday is when families come for brunch and fellowship time.  During our beautiful weather in April, we eat in the courtyard outside the Commons Dining room.  Afterwards, the children gather to hear the story of Easter, with books and visuals to help teach the message.  Then we hunt for eggs on the playground!

Vacation Bible School 

The second week in June is when we gather for our annual VBS.  Each year has a different theme to teach children the importance of God's love and the Bible's stories.  ROBC goes ALL OUT with decorating the chapel!  We always welcome non-church members in addition to our own ROBC children.
