Children & Families

 CYF Registration 2023-2024 

Bring your children and adolescents to Riverside for singing, storytelling, Bible stories, and progressive Christian education! Every Sunday there is something for children at The Riverside Church.

For infants, the nursery opens at 10:30am.  The nursery is located just off the cloister lounge, next to the Multi-Purpose Room.

Our preschool and kindergarten members meet for choir (9:30am) and worship (11am) on the 7th floor, room 717. The 7th floor requires a security code that you can request from the security desk or our Welcome Desk on the 3rd floor of the MLK building.

Our 1st through 6th graders begin their day in the Chapel of the Cross on MLK 3 for Rising Voices choir at 9:30am. Then we do an enrichment activity in MLK311 until it is time to return to the chapel for worship at 11am. At 11:30am we move to our classrooms, along the same hallway.

Our 7th through 12th graders meet for Youth Choir at 10:15 in the Chapel of the Cross. Then they move to the Youth Room (MLK313) for games, Bible conversation, snacks, and fellowship.Please note: On first Sundays, children and youth worship with their grown-ups in the Nave (main sanctuary) and we all take communion together.
