Children's Ministry

We believe that all children are made in the image of God and can be leaders. Children are often overlooked or pushed aside, but at Ridgewood Park, we take Christ's words seriously when he said, "Unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:3) Therefore, we endeavor to place children high on our priority list, not only to care for them and make church fun, but to learn from their leadershipRead more about our various children's ministries below.
