"Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it."
RipCity Kidz is a place where kids can have a great big life with a great big God. It is a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand in hand, a place where loving God is cool and kids rule! RipCity Kidz is the children’s ministry of Portland Open Bible Church. It serves 3-year-olds through 5th graders. Our purpose is to offer your children a place of wonder and discovery as they learn Bible truths. Our goal for each weekend service is to create an environment that is both educational and entertaining. We want to capture your child’s imagination, intrigue them, and set them on a course of discovery.
Our children's ministry seeks to bring children into age-appropriate worship where they can belong to the family of God, grow in their relationship with Christ, learn to serve, and then go share Christ in the world!
We want you to know that we consider it an honor and privilege to pour into the lives of children each week and we will never take the responsibility lightly.
NOTE: NURSERY IS PROVIDED FOR KIDS 0-2 DURING ALL SUNDAY SERVICES.
RIPCITY | ELEMENTARY
RipCity Elementary is for children in 1th - 5th grade. At RipCity Elementary, we believe the Bible should never be boring, and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick:
◦ Jesus is the way to eternal life.
◦ God’s Word is 100% true.
◦ Loving God and Loving Others will lead to a much happier life.
We want kids to see how God's Word fits in to their lives, to learn how to talk to him, and to build friendships that will last. That's why it's important to make sure your child connects with the same friends, same leaders, at the same hour—EVERY SUNDAY!
RIPCITY | JUNIOR
RipCity Jr. is for children ages 3 years through Kindergarten. At RipCity Jr. we believe that Sunday should be the best day of the week! We know things are busy at this stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them! We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games. We look forward to helping your preschoolers learn more about God. It is our hope that your child will learn:
◦ God LOVES me!
◦ God MADE me!
◦ Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever!
