We had a great time at KampOut! this past week. We had over 140 kids who came and were taught all about how much God loves them. From zip lining to rock climbing to inflatables to archery, it was a great week! These kids were taught the Gospel from beginning to end and heard the whole story of how much God loves them.
The Children’s Ministry at The Church on Rush Creek serves to minister families with children between the ages of 8 weeks old-6th grade. Our goal is to partner with parents during each child’s faith journey. We firmly believe that the family is the primary place for discipleship, and so we provide resources and opportunities for spiritual growth to take place in the home.
Our Sunday morning experience is specific to each age group for their developmental stage and our adult leaders volunteer weekly to build consistent relationships with the children. The Sunday morning curriculum will include a mixture of fun, worship, and small group discussions learning about the values and beliefs of Rush Creek – that everything is about Jesus! We strive to create a positive environment that will make your child feel right at home!
Our Wednesday evening experience, called Roots, is specifically for 5th and 6th graders. It is an interactive experience where students will explore who God is, who they are, and how they can live it all out in their lives. Students will be encouraged to have fun as they deepen their relationship with God! They will also have the opportunity to apply what they've learned each week through small group discussions and peer relationships. Another fun part of the Roots program is a segment we call LifeSkills—where students will learn practical skills they'll use everyday. Your student won't want to miss it!
To attend for the first time, please simply visit one of the Check-In stations to fill out a Connection Card and then our team will help direct you to the correct location for your child. We hope to see you and your family soon!

We just got back from an exciting week of Kids Camp. Rush Creek took 179 4th-6th grade kids and 63 leaders and nurses from four of our local campuses to Mt. Lebanon for a week. Kids got the chance to connect with leaders, make new friendships, swim, play awesome rec games, and encounter God. We learned all about how we are called to be light in a dark world and kids got to dive deeper into Gods word as they learned what it looks like to walk with Jesus. God moved in mighty ways and we had 24 kids come to know Jesus for the first time. We are praying that God would continue to stir in the hearts of our kids as they finish summer out and head back into their schools in the fall. We are so thankful for the amazing staff, leaders, nurses, and body of Christ here at Rush Creek who have planned, prayed, and volunteered their time and resources to make Kids Camp 2017 happen. May God be given all the glory!
Also, don’t forget to come celebrate the 3rd of July with us at Hawaiian Falls! We will get to watch the fireworks from the wave pool during our Rush Creek exclusive hours (6:30-10pm)! You can purchase your tickets for $17 at the At Home Center located at your campus. We can't wait to see you there!
We have something fun in store coming to our church in June! Starting on June 4th, the Church on Rush Creek will be beginning a new series entitled “The Higher Path.” This is based on lead pastor Russ Barksdale’s second “Pathways” devotional. It is full of amazing truths and steps to take as you continue to grow in your walk with the Lord, just like the first “Pathways” devotional the church together — it’s just that this new series happens to have a fun twist for kids!
Throughout the 6 weeks series, kids will have the chance to collect points by participating in their “Pathways Jr.” devotional. Books will be provided for free to each child 1st-6th grade on June 4th and provides a chance for them to study the same things mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, friends, etc. will be learning in the adult sermons! The junior devotionals follow the same basic principles as the adult book, but an element of fun will be added as kids collect points and move their game piece each week. That’s right, we went there! Your kid is not going to want to miss out on this fun. It’s also such a neat way for parents to talk with their kids about what God is showing them. “Faith talks” are one of the best tools for spiritual family growth, and this book should make it as easy as can be for families to have them. We can’t wait to see all God does! Get ready!
