Vespers Chico

Vespers launched as the Chico site of RPC in September of 2012. Gathering on Sunday nights, the name “Vespers” was chosen as a nod to the evening prayer services of the past.

Kids Ministry

Every Sunday our Kids Ministry team provides nursery care, toddler care, and Sunday school time for our K-5 children.


Nursery Care

Infants - 2yr. olds 

Nursery care is provided during the entire worship service. Located downstairs and coordinated by Davenport, the nursery opens at 4:45pm for drop-off. Parents are required to sign each child in, letting our team know how to best reach you during the service.

Toddler Class

2yr. olds - PreK 

Toddler care is also provided during the entire worship service. The toddler class is located downstairs and is led by our team of parents and volunteers who prepare a mix of play and Bible teaching for our little ones. The protocol for drop-off is the same as nursery and parents are required to sign each child in, letting our teachers know how to best reach you during the service. 

Sunday School

K – 5th Grade

Sunday School kids, grades K-5, are dismissed right before the sermon and head downstairs with our volunteer teachers, where they remain until the end of the worship service. Our purpose for Sunday School is the same as our purpose for the main worship service—to proclaim the gospel of Jesus in every prayer, song, and Bible Story we teach our kids.
