VBS 2023 - STELLAR, June 5-8


Registration has blasted off for the 2023 Vacation Bible School, June 5-8 (M-Thurs), 8:45 AM -  12:00 NOON.  Make sure you register now because registration is limited.  We will be going STELLAR with our activities, songs, crafts, games, and snacks.  Our space theme will show the children the things that God made that are “Out of this World!”  But you don’t need to be left behind because we need adult volunteers that can help our kids in all these many areas.  Prayerfully consider working with us as we shine Jesus’ light and love with them.  

(Kinder - 6th Grades) 

(Adults & 7th - 12th Grade Youth) 

A VBS Medical Authorization Form must be filled out for ALL VBS participants under the age of 18 and must be turned in to the Church Office or emailed to Angela Johnston at


Can't Volunteer?  Here's how you can still get involved: 
•Donate snacks for the children, teachers and other volunteers,
•Pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare the hearts of the children, teachers and volunteers, as we share Jesus with the children, some who may have never heard how Jesus loves them.

If you would like more information, please contact the church office at (713) 622-0570 or Interim Children's Minister, Angela Johnston, for more info at

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!
