THANK YOU VBS VOLUNTEERS!
This year at VBS, we were able to raise over $6000 through our Missions Offering. We appreciate all the kids and their parents who helped contribute.
We would like to thank these amazing people who decorated the entire church for VBS on Sunday afternoon, June 9th.

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!
Kids Own Worship
We're welcoming all kids from ages 3 years old to Kindergarten to join us for a brand new experience in worship and learning more about God's love. Children 3 years old to Kingdergarten leave with Ms. Sondra & Mrs. Mitch from the Sanctuary at 10:20 AM to Fellowship Hall (FH-B) for their own worship time.
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,
"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6 NIV
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 Commons during Children’s Church and Sunday School. There is a fun time in store for the children as they take part in crafts, 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!
