Ridge Kids

Here at Ridge Church, we don’t baby-sit your children on Sunday mornings. Kids are important to us, so we do all we can to make sure we provide a safe and fun environment that will lead your child to follow Jesus each week. It’s our honor to partner with you in this task!


We would love to see you this week in Ridge Kids!

Our Ridge Kids environment is safe and secure. Each week, children are checked-in by a parent or guardian and not released until their person returns with their matching name tag/code. The kids environment is secured from the outside and only our kids ministry staff and volunteers have access.

connect groups

The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus around people that can support you in taking your next steps. We believe life is better when you live in community. 


Connect groups meet during the week in various places all over our area and in others homes and businesses. We even have groups that meet online. We have groups that are for women only, men only, married, mixed and students. 


This is a great place to connect to other people, build friendships, grow in your relationship with Christ, and serve our community in a smaller setting. We have many existing groups and new groups forming all the time. 

Not all groups offer childcare, however some do. Some groups have paid-for-childcare provided. Other groups with older kids have things that the kids do during group time.  When you sign up for a group, let them know you would like to have a group where childcare is provided and we will do our best to point you in the direction for groups that meet your needs. 

missions

Our desire is to partner with gospel believing, Jesus-centered organizations across area and world, to help to continue to help them, help people follow Jesus. Not only do we partner in our local community, we also partner with these great organizations:

baptism

People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? What if I’ve already been baptized—do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked? Take a few minutes to read these baptism facts to find answers. If you are interested in taking the next step and be baptized or would like more information about baptism, please fill out the form below, BAPTISM SIGN UP and we'll contact you. 

Baptism isn’t required for salvation, but is the first step of faith for believers. The baptismal waters don’t save anyone. It’s Jesus that does that. Baptism is a picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s heart. Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) It shows our new life as a follower of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. Baptism doesn’t save you; Jesus does! Baptism is like a wedding ring, signifying a relationship rather than forming that relationship.


We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9), and commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20).

At Ridge Church, we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture, and is the basis for the meaning of the word “baptize,” which means to immerse (or dip under) in water.    I'M READY!
