Children in Worship
Children and Worship is a ministry that enables young children to encounter and worship God. The Youngers (children in kindergarten and first grade) and the Olders (children in grades 2 and 3) are dismissed from the Sunday morning service to their worship centers to be with God, to hear the stories of God, and to talk to God. These rooms are surrounded by Biblical stories told using wooden figures. Each week children engage in wonder as they listen and have time to respond to God's stories using art materials, puzzles, books, and a music maker.
GEMS - Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior
Our GEMS program is open to all girls in first grade through fifth grade. We meet two Wednesdays a month during the school year. Through the GEMS program, girls learn that they are beloved by God and have been created by Him for a purpose.
The annual theme always stems from Micah 6:8: "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
The GEMS girls, together with their counselors, explore what this verse means and how to put it into action, through Bible study, games, baking, hiking, and crafting. All girls are welcome, regardless of church affiliation.
Cadets is open to all boys in first grade through sixth grade. We meet twice a month on Wednesday evenings during the school year. Through the Cadets program, the boys learn what it means to live for Jesus and trust God in their daily walk with the Lord. Throughout the year, they do a variety of Bible study, games, and projects, the highlight of which is always the Pinewood Derby.
Our 2022-2023 theme was AMAZING, based on Joshua 3:5: "Joshua told the people, 'Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.'"
All boys are welcome, regardless of church affiliation. Stay tuned for Cadets information in the coming months!
VBS - Vacation Bible School
Our VBS theme for 2023 was STELLAR! Children ages 4 years old through going-into-6th grade joined together for this fun-filled week of Bible stories, worship, games, and exploration, all around the idea of shining Jesus' light and reflecting God's love no matter what the circumstances. We invite all children from the Rehoboth, Gallup, and surrounding communities to join us each summer for this high-energy, life-giving week of growing in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
VBS typically takes place during the second week of June each year. Check back next spring to find out the new theme and dates! In the meantime, keep shining!!!

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
Stephen Ministry at Rehoboth CRC offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties and loss.
Stephen Ministers are RCRC congregation members trained by their Stephen Leaders to offer care to people who are hurting. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week for about an hour.
If you are interested in joining this ministry, please contact Pastor Jim Kuiper or the church office.
