The RLA Kids ministry serves children up to 5th grade and is available at the 9:00AM and 12:00PM Sunday gatherings. One of our hosts will be happy to assist you if you need help locating the kids area. RLA Kids is open starting 15 minutes before each service begins.
God commands us to teach and train our children in His ways (see Deuteronomy 6:4,7; Proverbs 22:6), so we consider it our calling to co-labor with the families of our church in teaching their children God’s word and laying a solid foundation of faith in Jesus during the formative years. We aim to provide each child an age-appropriate biblical lesson, engage in a time of worship through song, work on relevant and creative crafts, and have fun.
Parking for those with small children is provided on the second level of our garage and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early if you want to take advantage of these spaces.
Please follow signage or ask at the Connect table to be directed to this area. Here you’ll find rocking chairs and a televised live feed of the gathering. This room is for nursing mothers and their babies only, so please no siblings, men, or talking.
Ages 6 to 18 months. Our volunteer staff will care for, pray for, and entertain your child while you enjoy the main service. Snacks and water are provided, but please supply your own additional baby care items and inform RLA Kids staff of any special instructions.
Ages 1½ to 2 years old. The toddler stage is an important time of growth and learning for children. RLA Kids provides an area just for toddlers where they can experience an engaging environment of creativity, fun, and the love of Jesus.
Ages 3 to 6 years old. This classroom provides a fun environment with plenty of room for discovery and creativity. The Younger Kids join the Older Kids for a time of praising Jesus in song and learning God’s word. Kids in this age range love to learn with their hands, so we utilize crafts and activities to reinforce each week's gospel lesson.
Ages 7 to 11 years old. This classroom gives children the opportunity to connect with other kids their age as well as RLA Kids volunteers. The Older Kids join the Younger Kids for a structured time of singing worship songs and learning God’s word. Next, they engage in a fun and energetic activity. Finally, the Older Kids participate in a group discussion in order to understand and apply each week's Bible lesson. We desire for kids at this critical age to have a deeply rooted understanding of the gospel to serve as a stable foundation through good and hard times.
Thank you for your interest in serving our kids at Reality LA! We cherish these little ones and take serving them very seriously. Because of the importance of this ministry, there is a short series of prerequisites that we ask you to complete before being brought into the regular rotation, including a background check.
