RiverGate's Children’s Ministry Department is here to assist you in the “training and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4, NIV). We are staffed with experienced, qualified, and screened directors, teachers, and volunteers to provide your children with a dynamic developmentally-appropriate ministry, where you can entrust your children for spiritual growth and training. Our fun and exciting programs will bring your children face-to-face with the presence of God and will help them to grow in worship and prayer, their spiritual gifts, and come into a greater understanding of their relationship with God. Our ministries include:
