Kids (Birth – 5th)

Ridgedale’s Kids Ministry exists to partner with parents and families to help kids encounter Christ, equip disciples, and engage the nations.

Our goal is to provide a dynamic environment where preschoolers and kids learn to become mature worshipers of God who make disciples.

We desire for kids of all ages to:

  • Seek a relationship with Christ
  • Grow in understanding of Him through His Word
  • Develop a compassionate burden for the lost
  • Become deeply devoted to prayer and service the body of Christ

Each week at Ridgedale, kids learn in a safe and secure environment. They engage in energetic opportunities to learn more about their Savior in concrete ways that they can understand and share with others. Kids at Ridgedale encounter Christ in age appropriate small groups and worship styles in order to equip them to share Christ with their friends and community.

We would love to connect with you and your family!


Each Sunday at Ridgedale Kids, preschoolers and kids journey through The Gospel Project. Every story in the Bible is a small piece of a much bigger story—God’s redemptive story. Each Sunday, children walk chronologically through the Bible, learning how the Bible is one big story pointing to Christ and how they fit into God’s story and mission.

Small Groups:

Small groups for preschoolers and kids meet together in age appropriate classrooms on Sunday mornings at 10am. This provides a unique environment for kids to engage in activities and lessons appropriate for their maturity and learning style. Small groups are designed to lead children deeper in Biblical truths as they learn about and apply the gospel in tangible ways in their life.

Preschool and Kids Worship:

Each Sunday, preschoolers and elementary kids (K-3rd Grade) continue through the Gospel Project in age specific worship styles. Both Preschool and Kids Worship focus on worship and discipleship through engaging worship music and prayer, Biblical teaching, and missions. Elementary age children in 4th – 5th grade are encouraged to worship with their families in corporate worship with their own unique sermon notes.

Sunday Schedule:

  • Small Groups (all ages) 9:45am
  • Preschool Worship (3-4 year olds) 11am
  • Kids’ Worship (K-3rd Grade) 11am


Each week, children of all ages dive deeper in an attribute of God. Our children are using the Truth78 curriculum to further understand who God is and how they should respond to him.  During this time, they rotate between a Lesson Small Group, Journal and Activity Breakout group and the Worship Workshop Choir. 

  • The spring semester ends on May 25th with our family bicycle rodeo.
