River Kids 

River Kids is The River Community Church’s children’s ministry for pre-schooler through to Grade 5. It is offered during our 10:30 AM Sunday morning service. NOTE: Because we believe in the value of families worshiping together, children who have graduated from nursery attend our Sunday morning worship service for singing and worship at the beginning of the service. They are then dismissed to attend River Kids before the message.

If you’re NEW to The River, there are two ways in which you can get connected:

  1. Just visit the children’s ministry registration station on Sunday mornings and a friendly volunteer will tell you every you need to know and assist you in registering.
  2. During the week, contact kids@rivercommunity.ca or by phone at 780-438-4523




The purpose of our Nursery Ministry is to provide the best possible care for children between the ages of 0-36 months. To accomplish this, our staff is dedicated to creating a nurturing environment in which all of the relevant needs of our infant visitors are met. A secondary goal is to allow the parents of these infants to feel completely at ease leaving their children in the friendly and competent care of our nursery staff.



GEMS is our young girls ministry at The River. If your family has a young girl (Grade 1-7) in it, they won't want to miss out on this amazing ministry which features songs, games, crafts, Bible Study and much more. GEMS meets every other Wednesday night and costs $60 for the entire year. Please check The River's CALENDAR for the next regularly schedule meeting. For information on GEMS, contact our GEMS Coordinator, Lindsay McDavid, at Lindsay_McDavid@golder.com.
