We're excited to partner with the Melville Baptist Church again this year for a week long day camp style of VBS for families.
It's taking place August 15-19 on site at 473 Eighth Ave W in Melville.

Our Kid's small group spaces are structured to accommodate kids of all age ranges. If you are new and are planning on visiting the River, all we require is a registration form completed for each family with children who would like to take part in Kids Church.
It's super easy and you can generally fit all your children on one form! You can click this link to Register in advance. Otherwise, forms are always available on-site.
We look forward to seeing you!

Good evening parents!
We are so happy to announce that Sunday School will be starting up again in February. Although it is going to look and feel different, we feel so blessed that God keeps opening doors for us in this strange time.
Sunday school is moving to an online platform for the foreseeable future. There will still be 2 classes, 3-5 year olds and 6 to 10 year olds.
Classes will be comprised of 1 to 2 worship songs, a 10 minute message, pre recorded by our Children's Ministry Teachers, and either a craft or an activity.
Parents, what we need from you is to register your children! Children who are registered will receive a monthly drop off from the Church. This will include all activities or supplies that may be needed for the classes.
To register please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a form.
All lessons will be posted here on Sunday mornings by 9am and will remain available for viewing any time.
Parents of Youth please also reach out and get those kids registered!
Hey River Families!
We are so very excited with a new direction God is taking us in with Youth! For the first time we are starting a Bible Book Study for ages 11 to 18. This will be held over zoom to start. Now we need your help!
We need your input for days and times that work for you and your families. There are a few options:
Please let us know what works best via email, email@example.com. Once we compile that information we will let you guys know what day we will be holding this.
One more thing we need your help with is registering your Youth! We need youth registered by January 22, 2021 so that we may order the correct amount of books! If interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a registration form to fill out.
We look forward to where God is going to take us on this journey and can't wait to get started!
Also parents please be on the lookout for another announcement coming this week regarding Sunday School for children 3 to 10 years old.
Hey parents and kids!
Our VBS kits have all been sent out/delivered to your houses this week. The River is super excited to kick things off next week Monday August 17th at 1:00 pm! Watch this page and the church Facebook page for the links you will need! They won't be posted/go live until right at 1:00 pm every day ending on Friday, August 21st.
Don't worry if you can't do it that week, as the links will remain up in both places for the following weeks.
We look forward to seeing pictures and hearing all about the experience of online VBS in the weeks to come!
If you have any questions or need any further information please email Rebecca at email@example.com and she will gladly help you out!
Have a great week and we hope all the children enjoy learning just how Jesus' power will pull us through.
