RLA Kids is Reality LA’s children’s ministry, serving families with kids up to 5th grade. As a ministry, our mission is to partner with families in the mission of our church — to make disciples of Jesus who love God, one another, and our city.
- Families loving God: In Scripture, God commands parents to teach and train their children in His ways (see Deuteronomy 6:4,7; Proverbs 22:6). So we consider it our calling to co-labor with parents in teaching their children God’s word and laying a solid foundation of faith in Jesus during the formative years. Additionally, we seek to help parents by providing articles and weekly teaching resources, such as “RLA Kids at Home.”
- Families loving one another: At Reality LA, we strive to make prayer part of everything we do. So as a ministry, we regularly pray for the families of our church. Additionally, our volunteers look for ways to serve families outside of Sundays gatherings, when possible.
- Families loving our city: Our ministry occasionally hosts events such as Family Summer Connect in order to reach out to families outside of the church. Community groups are also a great way for families to connect with one another while living on mission together in Los Angeles.
When and Where is RCL Kids?
RLA Kids is available at the 9AM and 12PM Sunday gatherings. (While we don’t offer children’s ministry during the 5PM gathering, the Nursing Moms room is still available.) At the 9AM and 12PM gatherings, you can drop off your kids starting 15 minutes before service starts and pick them up directly after. When you arrive on campus, head over to the RLA Kids welcome tent in the courtyard to check in your kids and learn more about the ministry. Parking for those with small children is provided on the second level of our garage and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early if you want to take advantage of these spaces.
What Will My Children Do?
Sunday mornings at RLA Kids involve times of singing and teaching, arts and crafts, and interactive games and activities. We aim to provide each child with an age-appropriate Bible lesson that will encourage conversations between kids and parents throughout the week.
How do I Stay Connected?
If you’d like to stay up to date with what we’re doing as a ministry, learn more about our policies (such as safety), and connect with other parents, you can join our parents group on The City. The City is Reality LA’s online social network, and signing up is free, quick, and easy.
