Kids

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.”

Proverbs 22:6

Kids on Sundays

Sunday mornings at RLA Kids are centered around the gospel! Each week we teach age-appropriate Bible lessons and have times of singing, crafts, and activities that support the teaching. We aim to provide each child with lessons and resources that will encourage further conversations with their families throughout the week.

Location

Sundays, 9AM & 12PM

Check-in in the HBHS courtyard

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.

At the 9AM and 12PM gatherings, kids can be checked in starting 15 minutes before the gathering begins and picked up directly after. When you arrive on campus, head over to the RLA Kids welcome tent in the courtyard to check in your kids or learn more about the ministry.

Mom's Room

0 - 6 months

Our Moms Room is reserved exclusively for nursing mothers with babies up to 6 months old (please no siblings, men, or talking). In this room, you’ll find a cozy and quiet environment with rocking chairs, snacks, and a live video feed of the service. Please follow signage or ask one of our hosts in the courtyard to point you in the right direction.

Nursery/Toddlers

6 months - 2.5 years

The nursery and toddler stage is an important time of growth and learning for children. Volunteers in these rooms love to care for, engage with, and pray for your child by reading stories, coloring with them, and sharing in a time of musical worship while you attend the main service. Snacks and water are provided, but please supply your own additional baby care items such as diaper-changing supplies, favorite toys, etc. (Please also inform RLA Kids of any special instructions.)

Preschool - 4th Grade

2.5 - 10 years

RLA Kids seeks to care for, engage, and equip kids with the gospel in an age-appropriate context. Grouped with others their own age, kids rotate between teaching, crafts, and activity rooms, with the aim of providing a holistic understanding of that week’s gospel lesson. Our hope is to start paving the way for an understanding of God’s word and how it impacts their lives.

2nd-4th grade kids join their parents in the main auditorium for the first set of musical worship, then RLA Kids volunteers escort them from the auditorium to their classroom upstairs to begin their time of engaging the gospel with their peers.
