What To Expect…when you attend @ The Ridge the first time:
PARKING…there are special designated parking spaces for first time attendees next to the building to the left of the front entrance. Park HERE! We only have one main entrance, so come in through the glass doors and you’ll find our central lobby which has easy access to every area.
WHAT TO WEAR…we are pretty casual around here, so come in something comfortable.
WHEN SHOULD YOU ARRIVE…our Worship Gathering starts at 10:30am, so you might want to get here about 10 mins. early so you can check in your kids and grab a cup of coffee
SPEAKING OF COFFEE…in our lobby area you’ll find a self-serve coffee station which also includes water and soft drinks. So grab one on your way in!
KIDS MINISTRY…Our children’s ministry is called RidgeKidz (for elementary age) and RidgeKidz Jr. (for preschool). When you arrive, there is a check in table straight across the lobby for RidgeKidz Ministry. Our volunteers will gladly assist you in getting your children registered. Our preschoolers go directly to their classrooms, while our elementary-age kids join their parents in the Worship Center for the first part of our Worship Gathering. There they will participate with you as a family in praise and worship through singing, then they will be dismissed to their own classes for the teaching time. Our RidgeKidz and RidgeKidz Jr. groups all study The Gospel Project. You can find out more about that HERE.
STUDENT MINISTRY…our middle and high school students gather for Bible Study/Discipleship group on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm. They enjoy connecting with one another through some fun and fellowship while digging into God’s Word together. The group meets on out church campus.
OUR WORSHIP GATHERING IS…really quite simple! We gather together and worship God through music, prayer together, giving, and practical teaching from God’s Word. We aren’t flashy and we don’t try to draw attention to ourselves or any person…except Jesus! Our music is current and contemporary, not over-the-top, but we also mix in some older songs with a contemprary flare from time to time. We take a very biblical approach to our worship gatherings. Our desire is to sincerely seek the Lord together as the Body of Christ each week. In the process, God is glorified and He speaks into our hearts and changes us. We believe you’ll find our worship gatherings sincere, relevant, genuine, and Christ-centered.
