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. Our gathering begins at 4:00pm in the Sanctuary of the Chico Adventist Church. From there, we worship God together through song, prayer, fellowship, and the preaching of God's Word, "to the praise of His glorious grace." (Eph. 1:6)

Kids Ministry

 

Nursery Care

Infants  

Our Sanctuary comes equipped with two cry rooms on either side of the room -- one of which is dedicated as a self-serve playroom and nursery. This will be open for all moms and dads, and will be fully supplied to help with any baby needs that might arise. 

Crawler class

1yr. - 3yr. olds 

Toddler age kids stay in church during worship singing, and will be dismissed right afterwards to their class in the kid's wing.  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.

Runner Class

Pre K – Early elementary 

Pre K and Early Elementary are also encouraged to stay in the sanctuary for worship singing. Their Sunday School class begins right afterwards in the kid's wing. 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.
