New to Ridglea Christian Church? Here's where to start.

Sunday Worship

 

We gather for worship at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday morning in our sanctuary. Central in the worship service is the sacrament of the Lord's Supper (also called communion or the eucharist) which is offered every Sunday to all. Additionally, a typical worship service includes several congregational hymns accompanied by pipe organ or piano, a time to lift up the joys and concerns of our community in prayer, an offering when we share our gifts with the church, a scripture reading and sermon that takes the Bible and interprets its meaning for our lives, and an invitation for anyone who wishes to join the church to do so.


Sunday morning for kids

 

Child care for children age 4 and younger is available in our nursery beginning at 9:30 a.m. Our nursery attendants will greet you, help you sign in your child, and ask for any special instructions they need to provide your child with the best care possible.


Sunday school classes for youth and children begin at 10:00 am each Sunday. There are two classes with age-appropriate, interactive curriculum led by trained adult teachers. The younger class is designed for PreK - 2nd grade, and the older class is for 3rd grade and up.

 

Children are an important part of our 11:00 am worship service, and our church is committed to helping families worship together in a variety of ways:

- When you first walk in the sanctuary you can pick up a red worship bag for children that includes age-appropriate activities and materials to engage during the service.

 

- At the front of our sanctuary on the left side we have a children's "PRAYground" area with art activities for kids to use during worship. 

- Children are invited to come sit on the steps at the front of the sanctuary during the children's moment, when a minister or lay leader shares a special lesson just for kids.

- Following the children's moment, children 2nd grade and younger can go to "Worship & Wonder," a program that teaches the rituals and worship traditions of the church with a different Bible lesson each week. Children return to the sanctuary during the closing hymn.

 

Sunday morning faith formation for adults


We have Sunday School for all ages including several Bible Study and Spiritual Formation classes for adults and classes for youth and children beginning at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday. There is a nursery for infants through 3 years old.
