SPRING MISSION PROJECT

ROBC Children's Ministry Missions Project

The children of River Oaks Baptist Church will be raising money to purchase fluffel bags for foster children in the Houston area. These foster children typically transport their things from house to house in a trash bag.  This is no way to travel!

Our children will be selling handmade bookmarks on March 10th, 17th and 24th in the Sanctuary Foyer from 9:45-10:00 AM.  They will also have bookmarks available in adult Sunday School classes.  Bookmarks are available for any amount.  Homemade cookies will be sold at the Church Spring Fellowship Luncheon March 31st. All proceeds will go towards our fundraising goal as well.

Once we have raised our goal amount of $500, we will purchase several sweet case kits, and the children will decorate fuffel bags, adding their own personal touch to each one!  Please consider donating to this wonderful cause.

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.


 

Maundy Thursday Children's Program

 

We invite all children to join us during the Maundy Thursday evening service for our very own celebration of the Lord’s Supper and Washing of the Feet, April 18th from 6:00-7:00 PM.  The children will learn the significance of these events leading up to the Cross and ultimately the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  You don’t want to miss out on this special event!


 

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." 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!

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.
