No, for security purposes, all families will
enter through the kids & students check-in
area in the lobby.

Will face masks be mandatory?

Effective Sunday, August 22, 2021, face coverings are required for children 3 years of age and older, adult and youth guests, volunteers, and staff, regardless of vaccination status.  
If your child is experiencing any symptoms of an illness or have preexisting health conditions that make you more susceptible to viruses, please enjoy the service online from the comfort of your home.

Do I need to reserve a spot each weekend?

To promote social distancing, you must register for all Preschool–5th grade environments each week. Registration is NOT required for 6th-8th grade.

Will my child be allowed to bring a drink or snack with them?

We ask that no items are brought in unless it is medically necessary.

We have registered, but can no longer attend—what do I do?

Text 304-410-0402 or send us an email at kids@theridge.church and we will make the spot available for another family.
