Our fall is kicking off and with that another year of Roots is beginning. All 5th and 6th graders are invited to join us Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm starting September 7, 2016. Roots is an interactive experience where 5th & 6th grade students will explore who God is, who they are, and how they can live it all out in their lives. We play games, memorize scripture, and learn about who God is during small group discussions. We are blown away at how God is moving in this ministry and want every 5th and 6th grader to be apart of it. We had a fantastic year and can’t wait to see what God is going to do this year.

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!

“Summer update: It has been SUCH a fun summer in our children’s ministry here at Rush Creek! Back in June, we took about 150 4th through 6th graders to Mount Lebanon where they learned all week about what it means to marvel at God. We studied the marvelous attributes of God as well as the marvelous ways he uses His people. But most of all, we focused on the marvelous victory we have because of Jesus rising from the dead! 18 kids from Rush Creek gave their life to Jesus! What an incredible week it was. July meant more fun for our ministry, too! Camp Kanakuk, from Branson MS, came down to our Green Oaks campus and hosted “Kampout” for 150 Kindergarten-6th graders. There was a zip line across the parking lot, water slides everywhere, games in every room — the whole week was full of adventure.
While we as a church LOVE camps, we are so excited for the school year to start back up and have everybody promote up to their new classes. August 14th is the big day! We know God is going to have incredible things in store as we prepare for Fall 2016!”
Servant’s Heart for the WIN!! Here at Rush Creek, we are excited about our program for students 3rd-12th grade that allows them to be servant leaders in various areas through out the church. On average across all 3 campuses, we have one hundred 3rd-6th grade students and eighty 7th-12th grade students serving every week.
In this program, students are learning skills to serve on the Connections Team, in Children’s ministry, in Student ministry, assisting with Facilities, and running Media areas. Amazing adult leaders are mentoring our students in the Servant’s Heart program. They live by the motto, “I am working myself out of a job!”
For more information about the Servant’s Heart program, please contact one of our campus Student Pastors or Children Ministers.
