Welcome to Children's Ministry!! 

Children's Ministry exist to make CRBC an exciting place for kids to accept Jesus Christ, be out of harm's way, learn the bible, pray openly, and bring their friends.

We have three major ways for you to connect into children's ministry at CRBC.

Sunday Morning Programs: (for kids ages 0-12)
The Nursery is located on the south side of the building just off the main lobby (sometimes called the foyer). It is open 10 minutes before the service for you to drop off your 0-2 year old anytime.  It's a 'come in when you need it' program.
Christ's Kids Jr & Sr: All students Christ's Kids Jr & Sr are dismissed from the adult service at the same time to the children's program at about 10:20 every week.  
Christ's Kids Jr  is a program for children ages 2-Kindergarten.In CKJr the children will start off by singing song all together.  The 2-3 year old will go and play, while the 4's-Kinders will hear a Bible story from one of our amazing story tellers.  After the 4-Kinders had heard they story they will go and play, make a craft or play a game.  The 2-3 year old well then get their chance to hear the story too.  Most weeks we serve a small snack of fishy crackers.  
Christ's Kid Sr is a program for children in grades 1-6.  CKSr is  split into two classes (grades 1-3 and grades 4-6) on the main level of the church.  They begin their time getting to hear a story from the Bible with one of our amazing storytellers.  After the story, they have a time to respond to what they have learned through games and crafts.  We end our time all together in The Chapel singing. That's where you can find us for pick up. 

Midweek Program (Wed from 6-8pm): PowerHouse for Kidz (For kids in Kinder-Grade 6)
In 2013 we created a program that we call PowerHouse for Kidz (PowerHouse or PH for short).  Our tag phrase that sits in line with our vision for this program is 'equipping kids for life'.  Wanting to be more than just another program for kids, we wanted to develop a space and environment where children could learn more about who God is and what He is like while gaining some valuable life skills (such as finances, cooking, survival skills, how to fix broken things ...etc).  It is a living breathing program and changes a bit every year as we use the gifts and availability of the people who are willing to serve as volunteers at PowerHouse.

Summer: Island Adventure Camp (similar to a VBS - run in the evenings from 6pm-8pm) Island Adventure Camp (or IAC for short) is week long camp where we sing songs, do crafts, play games, hear stories and most importantly learn more about who God is and what He is like and how we can respond to Him. A unique component of our summer camp is that we serve supper to the children and families each night.  This gives us a chance to get to know families and as well as bless them with not having to prepare a meal each day for a week.  The dates for IAC 2017 are July 24-28, with our closing ceremonies on the July 30th Sunday Morning Services.
