Kids

We are so excited to see our elementary-aged friends back at church each week!

until further notice, elementary schoolers are required to wear masks IN OUR KIDS SPACES. This will allow us to keep all our friends safe while providing small group time.

Find all the important information you need to know about FALL 2020 here.


Not ready for your family to join us in person yet? We are continuing to provide an online worship experience for you and your child each Sunday morning on our Family Worship page. These worship experiences are available for you to stream 24/7, so you can watch, enjoy, learn, and worship when it's most convenient for your family. And you can watch them over and over again! 

We are here for you! If you need help, ideas, or have a specific prayer request, please contact us. 

The Rolling Hills Kids Ministry exists to help elementary schoolers understand these three basic truths:
I can make the wise choice. I can trust God no matter what.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Fall 2020

SUNDAY MORNINGS:
Franklin Campus | 8, 9:30, and 11am services

  • Masks are required for all our K-5th grade kids who join us Sunday mornings for worship. Both the CDC and Williamson Medical guidelines encourage kids to wear a mask when social distancing is not able to be followed. We know our elementary kids love to be able to socialize with friends they don't normally get to see during the week, and wearing masks allows them to be able to spend time together in a closer capacity while still protecting one another. But more importantly, we believe that this is the age where community takes on a really important role. We want to make sure that every time a child comes through our doors, they are not only hearing about Jesus but they are able to talk about Jesus with their peers and leaders. We have missed being able to do this and are excited that we have the opportunity to make connections and be able to meet in small groups.
  • We will be providing disposable masks for any child who needs one and will have BRAND NEW RH Kids branded lanyards for their masks. These are your kids' to keep, take home with them and use at school!
  • Masks will be required for all volunteers serving with preschoolers and children. [Currently, our policy is that anyone serving at Rolling Hills is required to wear a mask while doing so.]
  • Parents must wear masks while in our Family Ministry environments.

Sunday Mornings

Sundays in our Kids Ministry are full of energy and fun! All year long, kids engage in both small and large group interactions to learn three core truths and more than 150 Bible stories.

Our Sunday morning environment gives your child opportunities to experience refreshing worship, learn age-appropriate truth, and build relationships with leaders and peers. We strive to create an environment that is kid-friendly and Christ-centered. Kindergarten-5th grade kids study 252 Basics from the reThink Group.

If you'd like to know more about Sunday mornings for kids at Rolling Hills, email Kids Pastor, Kenley Teige, or Kids Worship Pastor, Jennifer Akers.

New here? Here's what you need to know!

Whether you're new to our area, new to Rolling Hills, or just in town for a visit, we consider it a privilege to spend time with your child while you worship! At our check-in area, our volunteers will help you register your children on our secure check-in software and show you to their classrooms.

Next Steps for Kids

Kids in elementary ministry can take a number of significant spiritual growth steps at Rolling Hills. Declaring faith in God and learning to follow Him daily comes from an ongoing partnership with parents to help pass life with Christ on to kids. 

Baptism and Beliefs Class

Baptism is #1 on the list of things that get kids talking about salvation. After a child has become a Christian or when they begin asking questions and express the desire to follow Christ, they can attend our Baptism and Belief Class along with their parents. The class is offered the first Sunday of every month. We go through the basic doctrine of salvation and the importance of baptism. Following the class, kids who have trusted Jesus for salvation can schedule their baptism. After a child becomes a Christian, they are given a 4-week new believer's devotional guide to aid them in understanding what it means to follow Jesus. Kids are given an age-appropriate study Bible upon their baptism. To sign up for the next class or get information about leading your child to Christ, contact Kids Pastor, Kenley Teige.
Kids Baptism Classes take place on the first Sunday of every month.

We've been praying, watching, and waiting for the right time to safely return to in-person worship services at all of our campuses.
Our ministry teams will still be facilitating ways to connect and worship from your homes, but for those who are ready to join us
in person, we can't wait to see you soon! Get all the info about what to expect at the link below.
