Children & Family

At Raintree Christian Church we believe God has a special calling for each child's life and we are excited to partner with parents to teach your child the truths of God's Word in a safe, friendly, and fun environment.  Our children’s programs are more than just childcare — we  desire to come alongside and equip the

entire family to love God and love others!

Children’s & Family Minister

Hi, I'm Amanda Roberts. I have spent the past 20 years serving the church in different capacities, ranging from full-time youth minister to now children's and family minister at Raintree since 2006.


My husband Brook and I have been married since 1996 and Savannah, our daughter, attends college in Nashville, TN.


I love to shop, travel, and let my creativity flow. 


I am a Licensed, Master’s Social Worker but my passion is leading children to Christ and equipping families in the raising up of Christ’s disciples!



 I look forward to meeting you and your family. Please feel free to contact me anytime to chat or let me know how I can be lifting up you or your child in prayer!


You can call me at 806-797-3097, ext. 105 or email me at aroberts@raintreechristian.org

During Worship

During our Worship time, children’s programming is provided for children six weeks old to the 5th grade. For our youngest guests, we provide loving nursery care staffed by volunteers who have passed background checks. 


Our family-friendly Worship services are designed to encourage parents and their Kindergarten-5th graders to experience worship and communion together before being dismissed to age-appropriate teaching during the sermon time. 


We believe that parents are the “Spiritual Formation Experts” for their children and we want to foster that time for growth on Sunday mornings.

What we believe and teach

Everything we teach in the Treehouse is based on one of three basic,

but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52:


  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Small Sprouts

6 weeks - 24 months


We start our Small Sprouts on the basics of

  • Creation
  • Noah's Ark
  • Birth of Jesus.

They learn to sing about these stories and

they learn to enjoy Bible class.


All volunteers go through a standard background check. and we work hard to keep our environment

safe and clean.


The grove

2 year olds - school age


At this age children are little sponges and ready to be formed spiritually. We teach through Bible stories, games, songs, crafts, and play.

  • We start with "God made Me".
  • They progress to "God wants me to be a good friend".
  • At Thanksgiving we teach "God wants me to be  thankful".
  • They are then ready for "God is with me" at Christmas.
  • They are comforted by "God takes care of me".
  • They love the lessons on "I am special to God".
  • We finish them up with "I am created to do good things".



The treehouse


Kindergarten - 5th grade


In the Treehouse, we believe that the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud,

and good leaders always care.


Everything we teach in the Treehouse is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled

by Jesus in Luke 2:52

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
