In light of the recommendation from our governor in regards to the coronavirus, and in an effort to secure the safety of our members and the public at large, Middle School Ministries will not meet in person until further notice.
We will continue to be here to keep your middle school student engaged in their church community through our social media platforms. We encourage students to follow and interact with us on the 678 Instagram account and the Student Ministries Tik Tok and YouTube accounts where we will be sharing encouraging, challenging and entertaining content often.
We also encourgae you to join our texting service for updates. Text 678 to 916-299-6920 to opt in.
We get it. Middle school can be awkward. Students are growing up fast and need a place where they can start to learn how God sees them. At River City 678 we believe that God calls us to community and fellowship with each other. We strive to know Him more and grow in our relationship with Him. During our Sunday morning and Wednesday night services, all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are invited to join us for fun, friends, laughing, learning, and worshipping God together.
Wednesday Nights | 7:00-8:30 p.m. in Room 213
Each week features games, a snack bar, hands-on activities, opportunities to meet new friends, real life Bible lessons and small groups.
Sunday Mornings | 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Room 213
Your student will enjoy a great time with friends through ice breaker games and discussion groups while learning from God’s Word.

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?
If your student is in Club 45 or 678, yes. We have kiosks at “The Hub” that allow for a quick check in on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. 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.
