Welcome to Ridge Kids

Partnering with parents to​ ​connect kids to God’s story. Parenting in the early stages isn’t easy, but with direction and intentionality, parents can begin to build a spiritual foundation that lasts.

OUR HEART FOR KIDS

We are crazy about kids at Ridgeland! To us, kids ministry shouldn’t be babysitting where we just keep them quiet and out of the way. Instead, we believe the best and most critical time to connect a person’s story to God’s story is during childhood. We say Ridge Kids is where the story begins. We do everything we can to make the Ridge Kids’ weekend experience fun, exciting and engaging!

What to Expect

Kids are invited to join their parents in service during the opening worship songs. We place a high value on kids seeing their parents model worship to them. Most services include an engaging children’s message before kids are released to Sunday School. 

In Sunday School, kids will experience a fun and caring atmosphere. Our typical lessons include ice breaker games designed for connection, a Bible teaching, and crafts and activities to help reinforce the lesson and main Bible point. 

 

EVENTS FOR KIDS

Throughout the year, we plan different events for kids from Art Camps to Christmas Plays. In addition to helping kids grow in their faith, we think it’s important to help them get connected with a community that will support, encourage, and help them live out their faith. Our events are designed to help kids have fun and build strong long-lasting connections.

Partnering with parents

We believe that parents have the biggest impact of their child’s spiritual growth. So we love partnering with parents to equip you, support you, and encourage you on this journey. Look for our Family Workshops as a fun way for your entire family to learn and grow together in a fun and engaging way.
