Return to Ridge Kids - What To Expect

Children's Ministry at Glacier Ridge Church

Ridge Kids exists to partner with parents in imparting God-centred, age-appropriate, faith-building biblical truth in a fun and applicable way. We desire for kids to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of God with a positive view of the local Church and biblical community. We want kids to learn and apply our core values of: Reaching High, Stepping Out, and Being Made New.

We want every child, from infants to Grade 5, to experience a morning of worship, explore what it means to walk with Jesus, learn about God's Word, and have a great time doing it!

Ridge Kids is staffed by friendly, caring volunteers who have all undergone police background checks. They have also received training in how to safely help your kids grow in their knowledge of God. Of course, your children are always welcome to stay with you in the main service if you would like.

Tinys ( Infant - 2 years )

We are passionate about your little ones being well cared for in a safe and clean space while you worship at Glacier Ridge Church on Sunday mornings. We know it can be hard to trust others with your kids, but they will have a great time as our volunteers interact and play with them.

Littles ( 3 years - Kindergarten)

Our preschool area is a safe and clean space filled with fun, friends, and faith. We worship through songs, have Bible stories, do hands-on activities, and help grow relationships. Your preschool child will have a great time!

Bigs ( Grade 1 - 5 )

Our grade school space is where your kids will want to be! They will engage in active worship, interactive teaching, games, and small group time. Your kids will make new friends, as well as build on their understanding of who Jesus is. Our Ridge Kids will learn all about what it means to reach high, step out, and be made new!

Your First Visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Ridge Kids for the first time:

First, head on over to the Ridge Kids Check-Ins table. There one of our volunteers will meet you and your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child(ren) to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birth year
  • Home address
  • Parent/guardian mobile phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

You can also pre-register your child using the form below.

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a text on your cell phone. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
