VBS 2020 Update

BOLTZ: VBS 2020 – A virtual VBS.  Next week information will be available in the newsletter and on the church website on how to access ROBC virtual VBS.  Parents will be able to download a video with Bible stories, crafts, music and other VBS materials that children and families will be able to use at home for VBS 2020.  In addition, VBS 2020 and the ROBC community will have a wonderful mission opportunity to support the food pantry of CCSC in feeding the hungry in our community during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Children's Bible Study Update

Hello Parents and Children!

This week our song is In This Way and it is based off of one of the most known verses in the Bible!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
– John 3:16

Watch the video and learn the moves and the words!

The Pre-K lesson video is Jesus and The Children.

The 1st-6th grade lesson video is Give In Secret.

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!

Thank you for baking and donating to “Together We Rise.” The children raised $353.85 by selling bookmarks and $600 at our Spring Luncheon bake sale! Our total amount raised was $953.85, Glory to God!! We nearly doubled our fundraising goal amount. THANK YOU to each of you that took time to bake and to also give to our cause.

Thank you to Donna Moye for introducing us to the “Together We Rise” non-profit and thank you to Czarena Siebert who headed up the missions project and put together the bookmark fundraiser. We are so grateful to these wonderful 3rd/4th grade Sunday School teachers!
