Our Children’s Ministry at RIO East, KINGS KIDS, is divided into three groups to best meet the needs of kids in different stages of development.

We get kids excited about Jesus and help them build their faith by using Bible stories, songs, group activities, and curriculums designed for kids 6 weeks old through 5th grade.


6 weeks – 3 years

Our Nursery staff is committed to providing a safe, clean, fun and nurturing environment in which our precious babies and toddlers can learn, grow, and take their first steps towards faith in Christ. Parents may freely worship, learn and study knowing their child is in good hands.


3 Years (Potty Trained) – 1st Grade

In the Lily Pond, children will dive into who God is. They will learn more about God from live storytelling, Biblical stories on video, worship songs, small group activities and crafts.


2nd Grade-5th Grade

In the Reign Forest, children will learn to live their lives for God and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. These important lessons are taught through a combination of videos, live sermons, worship songs, and meaningful small group participation.

Our goal is to provide high quality child care in a Christian context for the families of RIO East. We provide a safe environment, while caring for the physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual development of your child.


All RIO East Children’s Ministry volunteers must pass a background check, we also use video monitoring and we employ a security team to ensure your child’s safety.

We will also ask for Food Allergy information before serving food or beverages during snack time or any special events involving food/beverages.

Check In

On your first visit, we ask for the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is filed in the church office.
