Children and Youth Ministries

Children's Ministry 

"Within our children's ministry, we seek to empower the minds of children with the Word of God so they can grow to think like Christ and live the way God commanded."

The Children's Ministry of River of Life Baptist Church, strongly believes that children are among the greatest of our assets.  Christ Jesus Himself is our example.   "But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 19:14 NKJV

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"
Psalms 127:3-5

We offer Six Sunday Morning classes for all ages from babies to pre teens during both Sunday services.  We are passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our children so that they will grow up and not stray from His teachings.  

Team Kid

During the school year we offer an after school ministry on Mondays for elementary school students at Jessie May Monroe Elementary. Bus transportation from the school to the church building is provided.


Youth Ministry

The youth of today are depending on us, the Church, for guidance through this amazing, albeit, perplexing world, and we are responsible for their spiritual development. The values and morals that we endeavor to instill in them are frequently offset daily at school and in extracurricular activities, and it is our hope that they will listen and learn to use these Christian principles to navigate through life.  

 Our youth ministry brings teenagers together for learning and fun, giving them an opportunity to build camaraderie with one another and with adults in the church.  At River of Life Baptist Church, we seek to encourage our youth to grow in their personal faith in Jesus Christ through discipleship programs, retreats, ministry and evangelism opportunities.
