Children and Family


Partnering with parents and grandparents in the journey of teaching our children the character of Christ. We know that children are the church of today not just the future. We are excited and blessed to have you and your child(ren) part of the community at Rochester Covenant Church! Our prayer is that RCC is a place where children and families grow deeper in love with God, his Word, and his people as they become well equipped disciples of Jesus Christ.

Nursery

For children 3 years and under, we offer a safe, secure environment while their parents worship and through the Christian Formation hour. Our paid and volunteer staff are all screened for the children's protection. The staff attentively cares for the children's physical needs and seeks to convey God's love through activities and play. Parents receive a pager when dropping off your child, so nursery workers can contact you at any time.

Children’s Message

Children ages 4 – 3rd grade gather at the front of the sanctuary each week for a brief lesson on the worship theme for that day. The children stay in worship the first Sunday of each month to experience communion with the church family.
