Kids

Welcome to Radiant Kids!

Our Commitment to You

Safety is Our Priority

We go out of our way to protect your kids! Their safety is our #1 priority. All of our adult team members are background-checked and fully-trained to keep your kids safe. While you’re enjoying our worship service, you can relax knowing your children are in a safe, clean, and loving environment!

Jesus is our Pursuit

We want every kid to have a heart that hears from God and pursues Him with all they have. This includes developing a personal friendship with Jesus!

Relationship is our Heart

We know life-change happens in the context of community, which is why we value consistent leaders in your child’s classroom. Every week these leaders will help your child grow in relationship with Jesus and develop a life-giving community of friends.

Fun is our Mark

We want Sunday to be the MOST EPIC day of your kids week! Our goal is for your child to beg you to come back week after week!

Excellence is our Standard

We’re committed to giving our very best each time we gather together. Whether we’re teaching in person or online, our goal is to produce an excellent resource. We’re here to help equip the next generation, and we don’t take that calling lightly!

Our Age Groups

Dreamers

We call our infants and 1 year olds our Dreamers, because they’ve just entered the world. They’re growing and learning what it’s all about! Your child will experience God’s love through the care of our trained Dream Team. Each week in this class, they will be prayed over, shown God’s love through play and songs, and often enjoy a nice nap.

Explorers

We call our 2 and 3 year olds our Explorers, because these toddlers love to explore God’s creation! From climbing to dancing and everything in between, your child will have a blast exploring God’s love through hands on experiences designed just for them.

Heroes

Our preschool and kindergarten kids love learning that they’re part of God’s Big Story, the Bible! Each week in this class, our Heroes hear a story from God’s Word and learn how to apply God’s Word in their own lives. Worship, play, and crafts are all big parts of what our Heroes do every Sunday in Radiant Kids!

Legends

First through fifth grade students are learning who they are in Christ through the calling He has on their life. We want our elementary aged kids to know they have the opportunity to be a Legend—to go stand out for being a bold follower of Jesus! Every Sunday in this class, our Legends experience their very own worship service with engaging music, games, Bible lessons, small groups, and a practical application that they can use to impact the world around them.

Partnering
with Parents

We believe the best way we can help your kids develop a strong spiritual foundation is by partnering with you. Together, we can help encourage, train, and pray for them as they grow in their faith.

Here are some practical ways we can partner up to make this goal a reality:

1. Pick a consistent service time and location to help your kids build a relationship with their Small Group leader and other kids their age.

2. Together, practice the current Radiant Kids Scripture memorization.

3. Follow @weareradiantkids on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date on everything happening for your kids.

4.Build relationships with other Radiant parents on the Radiant Kids Parents Page.

5. Join a Radiant Small Group with other parents

6. Pray for your children each week as they come to church, and pray for our teams as they serve and care for your kids.

Baby Dedications

Baby dedications are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise Godly children and our commitment to support you as you walk in that calling. We’re committed to empowering parents in that calling and helping families raise God-honoring kids. We count it an honor to be entrusted with that incredible privilege!

“CHILDREN ARE A GIFT FROM THE LORD; THEY ARE A REWARD FROM HIM.”

PSALM 127:3

“LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH. THESE COMMANDMENTS THAT I GIVE YOU TODAY ARE TO BE ON YOUR HEARTS. IMPRESS THEM ON YOUR CHILDREN. TALK ABOUT THEM WHEN YOU SIT AT HOME AND WHEN YOU WALK ALONG THE ROAD, WHEN YOU LIE DOWN AND WHEN YOU GET UP.”

DEUTERONOMY 6:4-7

Baby Dedication is a time for us to celebrate and thank God for the gift of your children. It’s also a time for you, as parents, to commit to model what following Jesus looks like. It’s a time to commit to raise your children to understand that they are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, to believe that the Bible is absolute Truth, and to know the importance of committing to a community of faith through the local church.

During the dedication service, parents promise before God, their family, and the church to raise their child in a God-honoring way. Because parents are the key role models for their children, we ask that they commit to the following before registering for baby dedication:

PARENT
COMMITMENTS

• Parents have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

• Parents are regular attenders of Radiant’ weekend services and are following Christ in their own life.

• Parents have attended our Next Steps class and agree with our church’s beliefs and values, which can be found in our Statement of Faith.

• Parents commit to modeling personal purity and to lead by example in matters of faith and conduct. That means living a life of sexual purity according to God’s standards.

• Parents have watched Radiant’s Baby Dedication video and make a list of who you want your child to become.

If you have any questions about these commitments, feel free to talk to your Location Kids Director or email our Kids Ministry Director here.

FAQ’S

Do I need to be a member to dedicate my baby?

You do not need to be a member of Radiant Church to dedicate your baby. We do ask that families call Radiant home, because in dedicating your child to God, you are stating that you are willing to partner with God and the Church to raise your child in cooperation with God’s intentions. As your church family, we are here to partner with you as the body of Christ and support you as a family unit.

Can a single parent participate in a baby dedication service?

 Can a single parent participate in a baby dedication service? Yes! Baby dedication signifies the commitment of parents, including single parents, to do their best to raise their child to be a follower of Jesus Christ. As a church, Radiant is committed to supporting single parents in providing a Christian foundation for their child’s upbringing. 

We just adopted our child. Can we dedicate our child?

Absolutely! Here at Radiant Church, we highly value our foster and adopted families. Once your adoption is finalized, we would love to dedicate your child and come together as a church family to support your family as you commit to build a foundation in Jesus for your new child!

Is dedication the same as baptism?

Radiant Church believes baptism is for those who have made a personal decision to trust Jesus alone for their salvation, once they have the maturity and ability to understand what that means. Dedication is not a sacrament; nor does it impart grace or salvation to a child. Salvation comes only through faith in Jesus Christ as each person recognizes their sinfulness and receives forgiveness and eternal life through him and his work on the cross. Rather than baptizing infants, we encourage a dedication ceremony, where parents formally call upon God’s blessing for their child and publicly commit to raise him or her in accordance with Scripture.

What should I expect for Baby Dedication?

Baby Dedication occurs after worship during our Sunday morning service. We value the personalized attention for each dedication, so your family will have a special time to go on stage with your location pastor. During the dedication, your pastor will introduce your child to their Church Family and parents will publicly commit to help their child grow in their faith and to raise them in a home centered on Jesus. The pastor and church family will then pray over your family, and present a Bible, certificate, book and special letter to each the child.

When is Baby Dedication?

Baby Dedication takes place on the last Sunday of the month at every location. We encourage you to invite friends and family to attend, so that they can join you in praying and celebrating this special time with you.

Water Baptism

Hey Parents!
If your child has made the decision to follow Jesus, it may be time to take the next step by being water baptized. Here you will find a video and a water baptism guide to help you and your child talk through what it means to be water baptized.
