When we first planted Restoration City, kids ministry was otherwise known as, “who’s going to watch Jack this week?” Since then, a lot has changed. Alex Dibble and her team have done an amazing job of building an environment that is safe, loving and focused on Jesus. Our goal at RCC Kids is so much more than providing babysitting during the worship gathering. It’s about pointing future generations to the life and hope found in Jesus.
If you haven’t noticed, there’s a whole lot more kids running around the church these days than just Jack. It’s been amazing to see the number of families with young children who have started connecting with the church in the last few weeks. As a church, we want to do a great job of serving these kids and their families. We want our kids to grow up loving church and believing that following Jesus is the greatest adventure in life.
In order to do that, we need your help. There are two main ways you can start serving with our incredible RCCKids team:
- Serve on a Sunday morning. This is what most of us think about when we think about Kids Ministry. It’s incredibly powerful and we want to create the best experience possible for our kids.
- Help with childcare during Community Groups. This is a little different from RCCKids in that it is a little more like babysitting. But we want parents of young kids to be able to participate in a Community Group without having to pay for a babysitter every week (that’s a big strain on a family’s budget). So, we offer childcare options for parents who want to connect with a Community Group (either at the group or at the family’s home, depending on the circumstances). It’s one of the best things we can do to bless young families and strengthen marriages as a church.
We really need help in both areas. If you’re willing to give us a hand and help shape future generations for gospel effectiveness, please let our kids team know. You can just shoot them an email at RCCKids@restorationcitydc.com. They would love to hear from you!
