Children's Ministry River City United Methodist Church Louisville KY
The Children’s Ministry of River City 
Children are an integral part of the Body of Christ and at River City we want to celebrate that! At each of our services, children begin in the service with their parents because we believe children should be SEEN and HEARD in our church. Midway through the service your child will have the option to participate in a unique worship experience with Bible lessons taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn.


Our mission is to uplift children and to help them see Jesus and have a relationship with Him. We seek to provide age-appropriate programming (birth-5th grade) and spiritually-focused family resources to children and their families. We hope and pray that we are able to equip each child in our care to be able to share their faith and gifts to the glory of God, in a safe and secure environment, while assisting them in their transition to the broader faith community of River City United Methodist Church and the world.

Sunday Morning Children’s Activities

If your child chooses to participate in SPLASH!’s special worship time on Sunday mornings, they will led our of the service by our Children’s Minister, Celeste Doll, to their own worship space. Celeste is always joined by at least one more adult volunteer. Your child will participate in a Bible lesson, that will engage all their sense and relates to the current sermon series going on at River City. By integrating both worship experiences, parents and their child(ren) can have more meaningful discussions after the service. So, don’t just ask what your child learned during SPLASH!, let them know what you learned too! We long for your family to grow together in faith.


Safe Sanctuaries
Safe Sanctuaries is the name commonly given by local United Methodist Annual Conferences and local churches to their individual efforts to make conference, district, and local church programs welcoming and safe for children, youth and vulnerable adults. We want your child to grow in the faith and the best way we can do that is by first giving them a safe environment to learn in. River City complies with Safe Sanctuary Policies set out by the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. To learn more and to view this policy, please visit our conferences website:
