About Us

Vision: The children will feel loved and valued as they discover their God given purpose in this world.

Mission: Teach our children to worship, pray, and encourage others.

Goal: Our children will learn, grow, and have tons of fun in the presence of God.

Service Information

Meeting Time: Every Thursday night at 7:00pm and every Sunday morning at 10:00am, the kids worship with their families in the sanctuary and then gather together in the children’s ministry space for Kid’s Church! During Kid’s Church, the children will receive teaching, participate in activities, eat delicious snacks, and have tons of fun!

Note: On the last Sunday of the month with 5 weeks, we offer a special service called Bible Bucks Sunday or BBS! During this special event, we offer kid’s worship, large group teaching with activities, celebrate kid’s birthdays, and we give all kids the opportunity to shop at our BBS store with the Bible Bucks they have earned throughout the year.

Snacks: Ritz Crackers ‘n Cheese Dip, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Pringles Original Chips, Pirate Booty’s and more. Beverage: water.

Note: If your child has known allergies, please make sure we have it logged in our system at the time of check-in. A River Kids volunteer will be happy to assist you.


Check-In: Parents/Legal Guardians are required to check-in their child via our automated check-in system. At the time of check-in, you will be given a unique security code to be used at the time of check-out. Also, if there is a need to contact you during the service, we will use the security code to connect with you.

Meet the Team

Children’s Director: Christina Antunez

Family: My husband Carlos and I have been married since May 2015.

Education: B.S. Christian Ministries from The King’s University.

Previous Lines of Work: I was employed with a multiple service provider as an enterprise manager for the Engineering department. I was employed with the same company for 13+ years.

What do you like to do in your free time? Spend time with my husband, read, and journal, discover new eateries, watch movies, and travel.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Don’t look to your left or to your right, just keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. It will help you see all things from God’s perspective.

What might people find fascinating about you? I was diagnosed with a cerebral aneurysm in March 2014. I was told that it could rupture at any time and cause severe complications and possibly death. I scheduled brain surgery to clip the aneurysm for April 25, 2014, however 12 hours prior to surgery, a preliminary test revealed that the aneurysm reduced in size without any explanation. The surgery was called off! I know God performed a miracle in me that day. God’s miracle changed my life. Since then, I fully surrendered my life to God. I have been set free since, and have never been the same again. God is always faithful, and the work He began in you, He will complete it.
