I’m New…Help!

Please plan to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the service starts. When you arrive, look for the area designated New Family Registration. We will greet your family there and register your children for the appropriate environment. We will then take you to the classroom that you will pick your children up at or to save time Sunday morning register here.

You will then take your elementary aged children to the sanctuary to worship together. Your elementary aged children will be dismissed there to go to large group then the classroom for small group, where you will pick them up after service.



Sunday Mornings


We know your child’s safety is important to you and we share that concern. From matching parent and child security tags to ensuring that every volunteer is screened with an interview and a federal background check, we go to great lengths to ensure that each environment is a safe and enjoyable experience for you and your child.


Here at Riverside we believe it is important to worship as a family. Which will make our Sunday schedule look a little different than you might be used too. After check in and you drop your pre-school aged children off, we ask that you bring your elementary aged children to the sanctuary with you. They will be dismissed to large group after worship and during the announcement portion of the service. You will pick them up in their small group classrooms.

V.I.P. Room

As we encourage everyone at Riverside Church to serve our V.I.P. Room is for our elementary aged children that have parents that volunteer during either our first or second hour or have a Life Group Sunday morning. V.I.P. Room hours are below. Serving first Service 8:45-9:20 Serving second service 10:15-11:20.

Drop off and pick up

After you have registered once either here or on Sunday morning, Type in your phone number or last name, then the children you are checking in that day and you and your child will be given matching security tags that are unique to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the nametag portion of your matching security tags, which bears a code that is matched to your portion during checkout at the end of the service. During checkout, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

If your child needs you during the service, we’ll contact you by displaying the unique code from your security tag in our adult worship environments.




We always want to protect your child and others from sickness and germ sharing to keep our little ones well. All area’s and toys are cleaned regularly. For the protection of everyone involved, please do not bring your child to the Nursery if he/she has any of the following symptoms: Fever Earache Persistent cough Heavy congestion Sore throat Swollen glands Colored discharge (from nose, eyes, or ears) Diarrhea Vomiting Unexplained rash or any skin infection.

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms while in our care, we will contact you immediately to pick him or her up. We do not administer any type of medication. Please make sure your child is symptom-free for a period of 24-hours before you bring him/her Sunday morning. Thanks so much for your understanding!
