Partnering with you in raising fearless followers

our dream

We want children to discover who Jesus is, learn to follow him, and to fearlessly make him known.

Ridge Kids is meeting in person on Sundays at 9:00 and 10:30. Nursery and Pre-school is available during the services for your children who are in the stages of infant through early 5 years old. Ridge Kids who are Kindergarten – 4th grade worship with their families for the first part of the service and are released by invitation from the stage by the worship host. All children need to be registered with a name tag before going to their classrooms. Fearless Fun bags that contain the Ridge Kids Bible lesson, a snack, and a quiet activity are available at every service for families who keep their children with them for the entire service. The weekly lesson is below and posted on Facebook every Sunday along with the Fearless Word of the Week. We encourage families to stay connected in any way you can as we move into a new season of learning following Jesus and fearlessly making Jesus know!

RK will return on March 6 for Infants through Kindergarten. Infants – Kindergarten may be checked into their rooms before the service. 1st – 4th grade will stay with their family for the entire service. We will continue to provide the fearless fun bag for children staying in the service.

We will be celebrating our next Child Dedication the weekend of March 27/28.

ALL IN CHILDREN’S COMMITMENT CARDS

You are invited to come to Ridge Point Church at any time to Door C and pick up a commitment card and a container of M&Ms for each of your children. We will have what you need at the receptionist desk. Or email Pastor Cathy at cathyd@fearlessfollower.org and we will gladly send you the M&Ms and the card. Last time our children raised close to $400 dollars in 4 weeks that went toward the purchase of the outdoor playground! When we say we are all in we want everyone to be ALL IN!

Young ladies of all ages and the men who play a role of “father” in their lives are invited to attend a princess-themed magical evening that includes dancing, dessert and a photo opportunity with Disney Princesses.

Join us on Saturday, March 13 from 3:30-5:00 (mask required) or 6:00p-7:30 PM (mask optional), at Third Coast Community Church (Formerly the Lake Town Conference Center) in Saugatuck.

Cost is $20 per couple and $5 for each additional person. 

As a network leadership team we have decided to require wearing a mask at the 3:30 dance for participants over 5 years of age. If you have signed up and want to change dance times or you need a refund please email cathyd@fearlessfollower.org We are grateful for your understanding.

I WONDER VBS

Have your children join us for our yearly Vacation Bible School! June 14-17th 6:00-7:30pm.

We will be asking questions and figuring out together who God mad us to be and how to share Jesus with others around us. We would love to have your kids and neighbors be apart of this. It will all be held outdoors in our new ampatheater  

Get involved

Here are a few ways to take some next steps.

Help out along with your family

Families who serve together have more fun. Serve together in the nurseries and classrooms to see first hand how we partner with you in raising fearless followers.

what can i expect?

Ridge Kids creates safe and creative environments for children of all abilities to learn biblical truths through interactive story-telling, activities and collaborative art projects. In partnership with families, we help kids follow Jesus with all their heart, mind and soul, and to fearlessly love and serve others like Jesus.

Nursery and Pre-School classes are available at the same time as the adult services. We respect your role as the primary spiritual leader in your child’s life so you will check your Kindergarten through 4th graders into Ridge Kids before the service, but they will stay with their families for the first part of the service. After singing together a host from the stage will invite the children to continue in worship in Ridge Kids.

Ridge Kids teachings try to be identical, no matter the campus. We also support and participate in various other programs and activities throughout the year.
