Second, inform the greeters who are in the breezeway that you're new to North Ridge.
Third, the greeters will show you where your children can go (optional; our children's area is a safe, clean and nurturing environment) and where the Worship Center is located. Although we have several buildings on campus, we have many people identified with a greeter nametag to help you around our campus.
Fourth, stop in at the Information Table. Our friendly people are happy to answer any questions you may have, help you find your way around our campus, or offer you suggestions on how to get plugged in at North Ridge.
Q. What should I wear?
A. When you attend North Ridge you'll find that there is not a "uniform" way to dress, most people dress very comfortably. Depending on the time of year, you'll see both men and women wearing shorts, t-shirts, jeans and sandals.
Q. How do I meet people?
A. On Sunday morning, go to the main building in the middle of campus. At each entrance you'll find people standing and greeting everyone - they will be happy to help you find the right building for you and your family.

A. Yes. You may bring your children and teens with you, or you can sign them into an area that's designed to teach them the Bible on their level.
