Red Hill Lutheran Church offers a K.I.D.S. Ministry Program for all children, Kindergarten through 5th Grade, during our DiscipleU Educational Hour, 9:00am-10:15am in the K.I.D.S. Zone.

Using a combination of large group and small group conversations and activities, we intentionally strive to create an engaging environment where children come to Know Jesus, Impact the world around them, become Disciples of Jesus, and Serve others - K.I.D.S.! All kids are invited to join us, regardless of church affiliation.



From retro toys to fashion trends, we all love a good throwback. (Especially for grown-ups because it reminds us of being young again.) There are things that remind us of a moment in time, but other things feel timeless and like they’re always in style. In this teaching series, kids will travel through the decades and see that the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels are always trending. As we hear from Jesus, we’ll see it’s always good to be humble, we can always forgive, Jesus is always fair, and love always needs action. 

We look forward to all of the kids joining us during our Sunday morning DiscpleU Educational Hour, 9:15am-10:00am. (Check-In Begins at 9:00am)

  • april PHILANTHROPY: acts of appreciation

    Throughout the month of April, Red Hill Lutheran Church and School is partnering with Acts of Appreciation Military Outreach by collecting baby donations to be gifted to expecting mothers in military families. During class, our students will be writing "Dear Hero" cards to thank members of the U.S. Military. In addition to these efforts and praying for our military families, this month's chapel offerings will be going to support the work of Acts of Appreciation. This military outreach looks for ways to extend God's love to our military families and their families whether they are as close as Camp Pendleton or as far away as Afghanistan. Click here if you would like more information on how to join in this effort.

  • family resource library

    Our Youth and Family Ministry (YFM) Team is devoted to the whole family throughout all the phases. We take a personal approach to ministry spanning a family's ages and stages. Each area partners dedicated staff, invested and trained small group leaders, and loving, supportive parents to leverage relationships for the sake of deep faith in the lives of our children and students. Our community purposefully seeks to walk with families as they raise godly and incredible kids. Our specific ministry areas share timely encouragement and program information.

    We have a wonderful Family Resource Library with books from newborn to college age on topics including "what to expect" at each age, as well as a variety of other topics. These resources are available on the patio every week.
