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.

 

Pre-School 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! Beyond the weekend services, our preschool ministry team partners with you in raising your children to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Birth to 17-Months Olds
We love your kids and keep them engaged while you attend one of our services.

18-Months-2 Years
We teach your children God’s Word with fun, engaging lessons designed for this exciting age.

3-5 Years
Once your child turns three, they also go 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.

 



FAQ’s About Kids Ministry

 

How does Check-In/Pick-Up Work?

You may check-in your child at any available station. If you’re new, look for one of the First Time Guest Kiosks located at the three main entrances. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag for your child to be released back to you.

If we need to contact you during the service, your child’s last name and identification code will appear on the screen in the Worship Center.

 

Safety & Security on Sunday Mornings

Your child’s safety is a big priority for us! When you check-in, your child receives a name tag that is matched to a parent-identification number.
Our volunteer Team Members are all screened with an interview and background check, and every hallway is monitored by security personnel.

 

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.
