Their journey begins here
RidgeKids is a place for children to learn about God while having fun and making new friends. Whether singing, dancing, or creatively working through the day’s lesson, the goal is to nurture tiny hearts and challenge children to live God’s message in their own lives.
THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE
The nursery is for our youngest attenders, ages six weeks to three years. Each room ministers to a specific age group with toys and activities appropriate to their developmental level. In the nursery, children learn they are loved by God and us!
Fun is the key to a child’s heart and so, fun is what this ministry is about. At this age, children begin classroom rotations. They sing and learn about God’s love through active drama that brings the Bible to life, then move to Small Groups to talk about the lesson and make a craft to take home. The goal is to build three critical relationships: Kid-to-Kid, Kid-to-Leader, and ultimately Kid-to-God.
If you have a question, contact the person in your child’s age group.
We have a program created just for 1st-5th Grade kids. We take them on “The Adventure of a Lifetime” as we explore the great things God wants for us!
In Large Group time, kids participate in high-energy worship music and learn how God’s Word applies to them. It’s kid-targeted, meeting them right where they are using creative formats, including drama and video.
During Small Group time, kids are challenged to explore how to take God’s Word and start living it daily. Our students can make friends, feel comfortable, and be energized to learn more about our God in this unique environment.
OTHER OPPORTUNITIES & RESOURCES
Starting Point for Kids is a 5-week series written for kids in grades 3-5 who are wondering what being a Christian means to them, in addition to baptism, communion, and reading their Bible.
To be eligible for baptism, children must complete the class series, worksheets, a baptism application and talk to a RidgeKids staff member or team leader about when they asked Jesus into their lives.
