Sunday Mornings

Sunday Morning from 10:15 - 11:30 a.m. our Discovery Land is a fun, safe, energetic interactive learning environment for children ages 2 through 5th grade.  It is our goal to challenge kids to "Discover Enternal Treasures" through unique, hands-on learning experience that children relate to and remember. 

We are eager to partner with families as we connect with God and one another.  Our prayer is that your children will have an incredible time discovering the truth of the Bible as God meets them on their journey! 

  • PreKindergarten (3 & 4 yrs.)

Your child will begin the exciting journey of discovering eternal treasures that are found in the Bible.  Children are never too young to learn, so it is our goal to partner with you as we begin planting the seeds of truth in your little one.


  • 5 year old Kindergarten & 1st  Grade

This age group will enjoy digging into their Bible with age appropriate teaching that will bring the Bible to life.  In Discovery Land we believe in "total time teaching" so the fun and learning begins the moment they walk through our doors!


  • Second & Third Grades

This age group will begin with large group worship time, then it is off to fun Discovery Stations for fun hands-on learning. Some of the stations are: The Garden of Eat'n, Discovery Land Waterfall, Sand Activities, Art and more.  The children learn eternal truth through these hands on activities. 



  • Fourth, Fifth, & Sixth Grades                                        

  • Fourth through sixth graders will join in the large group worship time and learn more about TRUE worship. After group worship they experience hands-on learning through the Discovery Stations. The hour finishes with classroom time where they will learn the Bible Point of the day, and truth that applies to their lives through real life stories.

Doors open for students at 6:20 pm.

Clubs run from 6:20 - 8:00 pm!


During the school year, Awana Clubs meet at the church every Wednesday evening. Participants are divided according to age and grade.  Each "club" is served by a dedicated Awana Leader, as well as volunteer helpers.  Each evening begins with game time followed by age appropriate lessons taught in small groups.  Awana's Club are a time proven, world wide ministry to kids.  Riverview Alliance Church have been offering Awana Clubs for over 10 years. The clubs are a central focus of our ministry to children. 

Contact Karen Nielsen with any questions you have, or stop in and observe.  We know you will be pleased with the careful organization and quality of our program.                

Clubs Available at Riverview:


Cubbies (preschool)

The Cubbies curriculum features two handbooks written in a fun, storybook style that appeals to preschoolers. The handbooks contain 24 Bear Hug sections along with six optional special-day sections. Each section combines basic Scripture memory with parent-child activities to help a child grasp a simple biblical truth.

Our preschool program offers lots of fun! Games, puppets, crafts, awards, snacks and other activities make Cubbies a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.

Sparks (5K-1st-2nd grades)

Sparks meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement.
Club meetings are divided into three segments:

  • Bible teaching, singing, announcements and awards
  • Small group interaction and completion of Bible-based lessons
  • Games that appeal to kids of all skill levels





 Truth & Training (3rd to 6th grade)

Evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand in our third- through sixth-grade program. Our program includes:

  • ​​-  Four handbooks of increasing difficulty which teach children that life’s ultimate adventure is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  • -  A cast of fun characters that boys and girls learn from and follow on interesting journeys in the handbooks
  • -  A Bible-centered curriculum that helps kids build a firm foundation for their faith, hide God’s Word in their heart and apply the truths of Scripture to their daily lives

Awana helps the church and parents work together to develop
spiritually strong children who will faithfully follow Jesus Christ!
