Rising Kids Ministry

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14


Every Sunday at The Rising we offer a full kids program for little ones from 6 weeks old through 5th grade. We desire to create a place where children genuinely experience the presence of God.
Our vision is to provide a safe, fun, and life-giving atmosphere where solid Biblical Truths are presented to kids in a fun and memorable way.  We love seeing the light switch on, as children learn and engage at every step in growing up.
We believe in the power of planting seeds in the next generation and creating engaging, creative spaces for kids to flourish in their unique and beautiful identity in Jesus Christ. Rising Kids are sons and daughters of the King — every child has a hope and future, a powerful grace on their lives and an influential calling for this region and beyond!

WE VALUE SAFETY!
Your children and their safety are our top priority in Rising Kids! From check-in to check-out, we provide a safe environment.

Our secure check-in system ensures that you and your child have matching ID tags. Your child will wear the name tag and you will keep the pick-up tag. After service, you will be asked to provide your pick-up tag in order to release your child.

The Rising Kids Team will proactively look for signs of sickness as Rising Kids come into the hall. We want each child to remain healthy while in our care. For this reason, we ask that your child be free of symptoms such as persistent cough, vomiting, diarrhea, green runny nose, and fever, for at least 24 hours prior to dropping off.
In the event we need to contact you during service, one of our Rising Kids Volunteer will send you a text message. For this reason, we ask that you keep your phone with you during service and provide your phone number to your child’s teacher. If you are contacted, we ask that you make your way to the Rising Kids hall and find a volunteer, who will direct you to your child’s classroom.

PARENTS

Our goal is to partner with you as a parent in the spiritual development of your child. Below you will find answers to several frequently asked questions, and you are always welcome to visit a Rising Kids service or to become a Rising Kids volunteer.

BABY DEDICATIONS


At The Rising, we want to partner with you and your family to help lead your little one in his/her walk with Christ! We invite you to dedicate your baby to the Lord at one of our baby dedication services. Baby dedication is not water baptism, but rather an ongoing commitment as a parent/guardian to train your child in the way of the Lord. We offer these celebrations quarterly. Please, see one of our Rising Kids Volunteer for more details.
