Service times, directions, and what to expect on your first visit.

Your First Visit

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week so we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids and students the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the service. We offer something for kids ages infant through Grade 12.

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

We'll help you find the area marked for "Guest" families. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

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

  • 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. You will also be given a pager if your child is in Waumba Land. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag. We encourage you to pre-register your child below.

  • 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, your pager will buzz. 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.

If you have further questions concerning our children and student experience or visiting South Ridge with children, simply click the dialog button to the right or bottom of your screen and we'll be happy to help answer your questions.

"Honestly, I was a little anxious attending South Ridge for the first time...a little unsure of what to expect. But as soon as I walked through the front doors it felt like home."
