Children's Ministry - Thanksgiving Gift

Parents and grandparents, be sure to pick up a special Thanksgiving gift bag for your children and grandchildren from the ROBC Children’s Ministry in the foyer as you leave worship on Sunday morning.   In it they’ll find some fun activities to encourage them to express what they’re thankful for, as well as a yummy treat.  Be sure to let us know you received a bag by signing your name on the list on the table.

Children's Church

NOTE: For safety reasons, there will be NO Children's Sunday School until further notice.
We are only providing limited childcare during this time. Please make sure to check the ROBC Newsletter and other email announcements for current updates. 

Providing for Children in Worship

  1. During the second half of worship, Children’s Church will be offered for children age 2 years through 5 years. Class size will be capped at 12 children, and if that number is exceeded, older children will be cared for in an additional area.
  2. Location: Preschool playground and breezeway area outside the Fellowship Hall. If there is inclement weather, the children will be cared for in the ROBC Fellowship Hall. 
  3. Staff: Paid nursery staff led by Amy Lee 
  4. When the children are dismissed to go to Children’s Church during worship, a parent will need to escort their child to the Fellowship Hall and sign them in. 

If your child(ren) will not be participating in Children’s Church this Sunday, we will have activity packets available to pick up in the Sanctuary foyer for them to work on during service. 

We will have Bible story time, fun games, and will provide individual snacks and a small water bottle for each child.  If your child(ren) have allergies, feel free to pack a snack for them.  There will be 3 to 4 helpers every Sunday. 


RightNow Media Launch


We have officially launched our RightNow Media churchwide account and I am excited to share it with you all!  RightNow Media has been dubbed the “Netflix of Bible Studies” and I can say it probably has more content than Netflix does!

In order to utilize this service you have to create an account here: RightNow Media Sign Up.  This link was sent out Sunday but I am providing it here in case you did not receive it!  Currently we have a children’s Bible studies tab and will add a “Staff Picks” section in the future.  But please do not wait to jump in and explore all of the content available!

Please email me at if you have any questions or issues getting into the site!

ROBC Children's Ministry

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, choir and other seasonal activities.

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
Proverbs 22:6


Annual Children's Events

Valentine's Day Party


In mid-February, the children made Valentine crafts in various stations during our Valentine party.  The children had fun as they participated in crafts, games, lessons, and a story-telling time that taught us of the love of Jesus. It was a wonderful time!


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!
