Camp 2023!!!!!

This summer we are going to camp!!! We will be attending CentriKid Camps at the University of West Alabama from July 10-14th. This is an overnight camp for children who have completed the 2nd-6th grade. There is an interest meeting coming up on March 19th immediately following the morning service. This meeting will cover the cost of camp, ways we are fundraising, what happens at camp, and more! Please make every effort to attend this meeting.

Egg Your Neighbor!

Don't worry, we aren't actually egging our neighbors! Each child here at RBC will take home a bag filled with Easter Eggs and an invitation to our Spring Party and Easter service. Kids will spread the easter eggs around their neighbor's yard and leave the empty bag with instructions and their invitation on their front porch. This is an egg-citing way to encourage our neighbors to join us this Easter Season!

Summer Kickoff with the Birmingham Barons

To kickoff summer RBC is going to the Birmingham Barons! The game is at 4pm against the Mississippi Braves. Tickets are $10 person or $40 family max. This is a great family outing and sure to be an exciting time! Please be sure to register early so we can get the best group rates!

Special Note

If you ever need to drop something off or find me during the week my office is upstairs with the other church offices. The former office on the children's wing is no longer an office and is being converted into a children's library and parent resource area.

Church Workday

Our Spring church workday is on April 1st from 8-Noon. There are several projects to be worked on in the children's wing during this time. I'm encouraging all teachers to attend. This is a great time to do spring cleaning and organize the classrooms so we can utilize them more efficiently.

Mom and Me Spring Fling

The Spring Fling for Mothers and Daughters grades K-5 is coming up! This starts the evening of April 21st and ends afternoon of April 22nd. Cost is $30 per person with a $90 family max. The children's ministry is covering the rest of the registration costs. Registration ends April 7th!

2023 RBC Kids Calendar

Kids Bulletins

Every Sunday there are Children's Bulletins available on the table in the main entrance. These are based on the sermon for the day and include activities to help engage the kids in the overall lesson. Crayons are also provided, just please return crayons to the basket so they can be used each week!

Children's Choir Sings!!!

Children's choir is singing in worship on Sunday, March 19th! This will be a wonderful day of celebration as the kids sing and we celebrate 2 baptisms! Invite all your friends and family to be here with us on this special day!

Books of the Bible Song

One of the goals for RBC Kids is helping teach our Kids not just about who God is, but about His word. One of the best ways to learn is through song! I have added the Books of the Bible Song to the RBC website under "Life Stages" -> "Kids" -> "Files," and you can find it HERE. This is a great resource to use as you drive around in the car, during playtime, or even as you get ready! The first half of the song covers the Old Testament books then gives a brief example of what is in each book. The second half of the song covers the New Testament.

Child Check-in and Pick-up Procedures

*Please be sure to sign in your child each Sunday and Wednesday*

I know this is an adjustment, but please abide by our policies!!

Starting on January 1st we began adjusting some of our drop-off and pick-up procedures to ensure the safety of both our own kids and any visitors we have.

Firstly, on Wednesday evenings we have started using the computer check-in system. Kids need to be checked in and wear their name tag while at church.

 Secondly, children are not allowed to leave Sunday School, Children's Worship, or their Wednesday night classes without a verified parent or guardian being present at the door.

*Please be diligent in making sure you are checking in and picking up your children in a timely manner. *

These are procedures already in our child and youth protection policy. We want to be diligent in protecting our kids and visitors so we will slowly begin enforcing more and more of this policy over time until all aspects are part of our normal routine.
