Puggles® recognizes the learning ability of 2- and 3-year olds by introducing biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home. Toddlers love having their very own Awana club just like their older siblings.
In Puggles, children are welcomed each week with play time, songs and simple crafts and activities. Leaders present age-appropriate lessons using large, colorful teaching cards, finger puppet plays and more. Lessons teach and reinforce four basic biblical precepts:
- God Made Everything
- God Saw That It Was Good
- God is Love
- Give Thanks
Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their Cubbies friends, they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.
Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so your child will respect and trust Him for life.
Childhood Ministry Consent
Safety & Security
We care about kids at Riverview! Safety and security are high priorities in our Childhood Ministries. We use the following guidelines :
• At least 2 workers must be present in each class, one of whom must be at least 18 years old.
• All workers must submit to a yearly criminal background check
• No worker shall inflict physical discipline on a child. If a child cannot be disciplined by firm but loving, non-physical correction, the worker will give one warning; next, take a time out outside the classroom with the director on duty; finally, the director will take the child to a parent.
It is our goal to keep the children’s area as clean and health-friendly as possible. For the well being of all, children should not be brought to church if they have, or have had in the last 24 hours:
- Any known contagious childhood disease (e.g., chicken pox)
- Sore throat
- Croup and/or productive cough
- Any skin infection or unexplained rash
- Pink eye
- Nasal discharge of color
- Common cold
When a child has received antibiotic medication for 24 hours, and is feeling well, he may be brought to church.
Other health policies:
- No medications will be administered at church, nor should medication be stored in a diaper bag or child’s backpack (to prevent other children from accidentally handling or ingesting it).
- Children who become, or appear, ill at church will be isolated and the parents called for.
- If children develop symptoms of a childhood disease within 4 days after attending a session at church, the director should be informed so that other parents may be notified and choose to take preventative care.
Jesus said, “Let the children come to Me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14
To partner with parents in helping preschoolers know Jesus as their friend, and plant seeds of faith for later coming to know Him as Savior and Lord.
For preschoolers to know that Jesus loves them, and that church is a safe and happy place; and for parents to know their preschoolers are safe with trained, dedicated Christian teachers.
