Welcome! We are so glad to meet you. CARR Kids is the children’s ministry at Church at Red River. We are committed to reaching the lost and broken, caring for the needs of our children, and empowering them to become leaders through their God-given gifts. We love children, and we want each of them to discover the wonder of who God is. With this goal in mind, we have worked to create an atmosphere that inspires each child’s imagination and creativity. We have fun! And we believe God has something special for each child that worships with us. We can’t wait to meet your child and share the truth of God’s Word!
Here Is What To Expect
When you arrive at the CARR Kids Welcome Kiosk, one of our ministry partners will guide you through the computerized check-in process. If it is your first time worshipping with us, we will ask for some basic information to ensure you and your child feel secure and any special needs are communicated with our partners. We suggest arriving at least 10 minutes before service so you don’t feel rushed. Once check-in is complete, we will introduce you and your child to their teachers. We want to do everything possible to make the transition from parent to teacher a smooth one. We are so honored to have you and your child as our special guests.
Nursery (Birth-18 months): We cuddle babies in an environment where each child sees, hears, and feels the love of Jesus. Our caregivers pray over each child, sing songs, and interact with them through imaginative play.
Toddlers (19 months-2 years): We love on toddlers and show them Christ through social playtime, worship, crafts, prayer, and Bible storybooks.
Preschoolers (3-5 years old): We engage preschoolers in ministry through fun games, art, video lessons, and interactive activities. Our youngsters focus on three basic truths: God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
Elementary (K-5th grade): Our elementary students encounter God in a powerful way through Bible study and small group activities. We use attention-gripping skits, videos, games, and worship to share the message God has for our students. Our Small Group Leaders drive home the bottom line through a variety of exciting activities and connect with our kids through prayer and conversation.
Our Mother’s Room, which is located across from the CARR Kids Welcome Kiosk, is available for mothers of infants. This allows mothers the opportunity to be involved in the worship service while caring for the needs of their babies in a more comfortable environment.
On your way out, be sure to stop at the information desk to say hello! We want you to know that we enjoyed having your child as our guest for the first time. We hope you will join us again!
