The Riffles - Kids Ministry

Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at ARCC

Kids Ministry at ARCC

At ARCC our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and fun way.

We would love to see you and your family visit The Riffles.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting The Riffles for the first time:

First, head to the worship center and find the greeter desk in the foyer. if you are completely new to us, please don’t be bashful - ask for directions to your child’s class. There we will meet you, check your child in, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking your children in at their class for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

We are hopeful that we can begin using a kiosk system soon! Until then, check-in is done the old-fashioned way, with paper and pen. Please let us know who is allowed to pick up your child from their class, as they will not be released to anyone other than who you designate.

Here’s what we hope to grow into:

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Parent's Viewing Room

ARCC offers childcare during service for infants. But we also have a Parent's Viewing Room that is available for mothers and fathers with infants. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment. It is in the rear of the sanctuary. Please ask someone if you have trouble finding it, and just about anyone will be happy to direct you!
