Meet Alex

Alex is Tawny's go-to person. "Assistant" doesn't adequately describe all that Alex does in the Kids' department.


You can find Alex leading Sunday School on Sundays, Ignite every other Friday, and she tends to pop up just about everywhere else as well. 


If you're a parent looking for information about anything kid-related at NorthRidge, Alex is a very capable person to direct your questions to. Look for her and say "Hi!" 

sunday services

Every week starts with a Sunday - and NorthRidge does Sundays right. Every Sunday morning, there is something planned for ALL our babies, preschoolers, students and highschoolers. In each case, we do our best to move beyond babysitting to provide the perfect environment for each kid to make connections with God and others.

  • Noah's Neighbourhood (ages 0-2) Childcare is provided, but you're welcome to stay with your child as well.
  • Discovery Way (ages 2-4) A great, supervised space for your preschooler to stretch their legs, sing, dance and play -all while learning the basics of who Jesus is.
  • the Junction (gr.K-4) This group meets in the Great Hall for activities, songs and great teaching.
  • Route 57 (gr.5-7) These middle-schoolers begin their morning in the adult service, then move to their age-specific group after music worship. 
  • theMOVEMENT (gr.8-12) Our church youth group also begins with the adults for music worship, then moves to their own space for a high school-directed discussion time.

The best way to learn more about our Sunday programs is to check us out at Thomas Haney School at 10am EVERY Sunday!

summer camps

Most of our opportunities happen weekly, but the mother of all great student events is our summer camps. Kids and Youth Camps happen once/year, but there is valuable information about registration and pre-camp events.
