The North Ridge Children’s Ministry provides a loving and safe environment for children to have fun, build strong Christian friendships and learn to love God and serve Him. Weekly programs are offered that are biblically-based, kid-focused and spiritually transforming.

Birth Through Preschool

The Group Hands on curriculum is designed to teach as Jesus taught. Jesus had a knack for connecting eternal truths with everyday symbols. Hands on Curriculum keeps kids’ attention with Bible stories told in a memorable way. Children learn through listening, singing, activities and fun. Best of all, they’re brought closer to Jesus.

The Fun Factory is where kids have fun with a purpose – building up their lives in Christ. The Sunday morning program combines both a large group and a small group experience that helps Kindergartners through 3rd graders discover and experience a real relationship with God through a variety of learning styles.

The Kid Spring curriculum by New Spring Network is used in the Fun Factory to help children learn Bible knowledge with the goal of spiritual transformation.  Each Sunday is filled with great worship, cool games, creative dramas and interactive visual lessons. Each Sunday the kids are broken up into age appropriate groups and learn how to apply what they just learned in the large group. The Fun Factory was designed with kids in mind.

4th and 5th Grade

Following the Way of Christ

“Show me the path where I should walk, O Lord; point out the right road for me to travel.”  Psalm 25:4

Merge is our unique ministry to 4th and 5th grade students. This age group is “merging” from small children to young adults, and learning how to merge their physical/social lives with Christ-centered principles. 4th and 5th graders are taught using the Grapple curriculum by Group Publishing. This allows them to “grapple” with everyday life issues and learn biblical answers to their toughest questions.
Fun special events are planned throughout the year to encourage these students to form meaningful relationships with each other and with their small group leader.

Merge Summer Camp

Have you ever wondered why God placed you on the Earth? Do you want to be set apart for amazing things? In summer 2017, UCYC campers and leaders will be exploring the idea of building our commitment, our character, and our community through the life of Nehemiah and the parable of the builders from the book of Matthew. Using the Word of God as our building block, students will experience an incredible week of teaching, worship, games, recreational experiences, and FUN!
