We welcome you and your family to Ridgewood Church! Our goal is to make Ridgewood a safe place for your children and to be a church that is a comforting and loving place for all. All volunteers working with children are required to have an extensive background check. Ridgewood Church also has a trained Security Team patrolling the building and parking lots throughout the morning.
When you come to the Kidz Connect Check-In Desk every Sunday Morning, you will receive a name tag for your child, along with a matching parent pick-up tag. The parent pick-up tag will need to be presented to a classroom leader in order to pick up your children from the room(s) they are in.
For health and protection of all children, a child with any illness will not be permitted in the Kidz Connect Children classrooms. Our Well Child Policy guidelines are as follows:
We are staffed by nursery coordinators and capable volunteers for both Worship Services, 9:00am & 10:45am. After stopping at the Kidz Connect Check-In Desk, the nursery staff will be able to help you get your little one settled.
We offer preschool classes during both Worship Services, 9:00am & 10:45am. We teach Biblical lessons, sing and have art and activity time. Classes are set according to age, as follows:
OPTION ONEChildren may join their parents for the first half of our Sunday Worship Services, and then children will be excused during the pastor's message to their own "Children's Church" time - an age appropriate interactive teaching time, with object lessons or special speakers. After the service, parents pick-up children in the gym (lower level).
OPTION TWOChildren may come to the lower level during the entire Worship Service for children's programming, including Children's Church. After the service, parents pick-up children in the gym (lower level).
At 11:10am children will have small group class time (according to grade) where devoted leaders seek to make God's word real and relevant in creative and exciting ways for your elementary-age children.
The Gospel Project is our current curriculum that looks at the whole story of redemption through Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation. This Year we are in the New Testament with the life of Jesus.
