Club 45 is River City Christian’s program designed specifically for pre-teen students in grades 4 and 5. Students learn not only about what the Bible says but also how to apply its truth to their everyday lives, helping them to own their faith at this significant time in their development. Lessons are relevant to their experiences and include hands-on applications. The interactive and exciting nature of the program encourages students to truly engage with biblical truth.
10:00 + 11:30 a.m. in the Club 45 room (upstairs)
Join us at 10:00 or 11:30 a.m. for games, worship, large group teaching and small groups with other 4th and 5th grade students. Please note, students are asked to pre-register for each Sunday morning they attend. Spots are limited. Please bring a face covering.
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
Small groups of 4th and 5th grade students will meet on the patio each week to spend intentional time studying Bible stories, building friendships, and growing in faith. Social distancing will be practiced and we ask that all students wear face coverings. Groups will be grade and gender specific. Contact us to sign your student up for a discipleship group.
With all that is going on in our world right now, River City wants to make sure that you have the tools you need to connect with your 4th and 5th grade students about God. Follow the Club 45 Facebook page to keep up to date on weekly lessons that we would normally be covering at church on Sundays, as well as other fun activities, Bible points, monthly verses and so much more!
We encourage you to join our texting service for updates. Text CLUB45 to 916-312-4102 to opt in.
Are leaders and volunteers background checked?
Yes, the safety of your student is extremely important to River City Christian. One of the steps we take to ensure safety is requiring background checks on all volunteers working with students 18 and under.
Does my student have to be Christian to attend?
No. Jesus told us to go out and make disciples. It is our hope that we will be able to help your student’s faith develop no matter where they are in their own personal spiritual journey. We seek to create environments in which students will feel comfortable bringing their friends whether they consider themselves Christians yet or not.
What are you teaching my student?
We believe the Word of God is to be held with high regard. So, each leadership team within River City Student Ministries spends time carefully planning out series that will communicate the truths of scripture in a relevant way. You are always welcome to ask about the current series that is being taught.
What happens during small groups?
We believe participation in small groups is the most effective way for students to connect with each other and with adult leaders who sincerely care about them. Small groups discuss the lessons that were presented in the big group, develop relationships with one another through sharing life experiences, play games that build trust and community, and pray for one another.
Does my student need to check-in when they arrive?
When students arrive for youth group, we ask that they stop by the Check-In Station. Checking in helps us minister to each family in a number of ways. It allows us to follow up with your student, know who is on campus, and have the most up to date contact information for communication purposes.
What if my student has food or other allergies?
If your student has food allergies please let the pastor of that area know right away. At all events as well as trips off campus, we do our best to make sure each student’s dietary needs are safely met.
