RLA Kids is Reality LA’s children’s ministry, serving families with kids up to 4th grade. Our mission as a ministry is to partner with families in the mission of our church to make disciples of Jesus who love God, one another, and our city. Our volunteers work hard to create a safe, fun, and inviting space for kids to hear the good news of Jesus.
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
What We're Learning This Week
The Suffering of Job
God is still present, near, and good, even in our suffering. We can hope in God, even when it feels hopeless. We have a God who understands and empathizes with our suffering. Jesus, the only truly innocent One, suffered and died so that everyone who trusts in Him can have forgiveness and eternal life.

Kids are welcome in our gatherings, but we also have a variety of age-appropriate opportunities for them to engage the gospel in community with our team of loving (and background-checked) volunteers in Reality LA Kids. Below is a snapshot of what we are able to currently offer.
Any mother who would like a private/female-only space to feed their child, allow them space to cry or sleep—or honestly whatever reason you may have—can go to the private Moms’ Room located off the northeast part of the courtyard (signs will direct you day-of). This room has rocking chairs, a small foam-matted area for little ones to crawl on, a TV with a live feed of the sermon, a changing table, and a diaper genie. The room is located down a small hallway and there are room divider walls for an extra level of privacy. If you have one child aged 6 months or younger, we suggest this is the best spot for you.
The Nursery/Toddler room is a space where children 6-36 months can come during the gathering. We will have carpets set up throughout the room, books and toys to engage with, snacks, musical worship, and a short bible lesson each Sunday. Our background-checked volunteers will seek to care for your children and exhibit the love of Jesus in all we do!
**Any child participating in these area must be fully potty trained and able to communicate with our volunteer team.**
We can’t wait to share the good news of Jesus and partner with you in making disciples! Our background-checked volunteer team will be with your children for the full duration of the gathering, then parents and caretakers can pick them up immediately after the service concludes. Our time together will include a gospel-centered teaching time, exciting musical worship, activities and crafts that help reinforce the lesson, snacks, and more!

Resources for Current Events
We want to do as much as we can to continue to serve and support the families of our church and city in the midst of the unprecedented and challenging effects of the coronavirus. Our hope is that the following resources are valuable for you and your family as you navigate through it all, from spiritual formation to meeting practical needs.
Resources for Current Events
Reality LA Kids’ mission is to partner with families in making disciples who love Jesus, love one another, and love our city. While these weekly guides, books, and other resources aren’t the ultimate answer to pursuing godly parenting and loving children, we do pray they will help guide, shape, and lead families in raising up children in the ways of the Lord. We hope these resources help supplement the primary resources of Scripture, prayer, relationships, and dependence on the Holy Spirit.
