Kids - West Ridge Church

West Ridge Kids


Your kids learn about God at their level while you’re attending one of our weekend services.

Each week, a team of staff and volunteers create fun, safe, and age-appropriate environments. Through interactive experiences, music, and Bible teaching, kids birth – 5th grade experience God in a way they understand.

 

Preschool Ministry  | Birth through Pre-K

Our team creates a loving, nurturing environment where little ones learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever! Our preschool ministry team partners with you in raising your children to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

3-5 Years
We teach your children God’s Word with fun, engaging lessons designed for this exciting age. This age group also goes to a large group session where they sing, dance, and watch videos or skits that reiterate each week’s Bible story and each month’s memory verse.

 



Elementary Ministry  | K-5th

Kids at West Ridge is a fun, high-energy, and Christ-centered ministry for elementary age kids. The experience starts in a small group with kids the same age and trained leaders. Then they join our large group experience led by our Worship Team. During this gathering, your child sings, participates in fun challenges, and hears Bible stories in a way that’s both creative and engaging.

After the large group experience ends, they meet with their small groups again to dive deeper into God’s Word and the Bible story they heard in the large group. This small group time gives your child a chance to grow in their faith while building relationships with other kids and their leaders.

 



FAQs About Kids Ministry

 

How does Check-In/Pick-Up Work?

If you’re new, look for one of the First Time Guest Tables located at the three main entrances so that one of our volunteer team members can help you and your child check in and get you where you need to be. After your first visit, you will use your telephone number to check in your child on your own at any available computer kiosk outside of either West Ridge Kids area (Birth through Pre-K or K-5th Grade). At check-in, you will get a name tag for your child to wear and a parent pick-up tag for you to keep. Those tags both have the same identification code on them that is exclusive to your family that day. After service, you will return to your child’s area with your parent pick-up tag and show that your tag’s code matches your child’s name tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

If we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the two lower screens in the Worship Center.

 

What safety measures do you have in place?

Your child’s safety is a big priority to us! As mentioned above in more detail, when you check in your child, you receive a name tag for your child and a parent pick-up tag for you. These tags have matching identification codes. Also, all of our volunteer team members have current background checks on file, and we have a trained security team that closely monitors both of our West Ridge Kids areas.

 

How will my kids learn?

We believe that church should be fun for people of any age! In each setting, we use technology, fun activities, skilled volunteers, and small groups so children experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them.

 

What will my kid’s small group look like?

We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, kids are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.
