MEET alex

Alex Connor continues to be the greatest gift we could have ever given to Tawny Douglas. As Tawny's assistant, Alex is so much more than someone who "takes a memo" and brings coffee. Instead, she is an independently-gifted teacher and mentor for our kids and youth.

Alex and Tawny seem to share a brain, so if you have a question about student ministries, you're likely to find an answer with Alex.

programs + events

There are SO many opportunities for students to connect at NorthRidge. Some connecting points are weekly, some are monthly and some are even annual. You can always stay up-to-date with the latest happenings for kids by viewing our CALENDAR.

  • NorthRidge Nursery


    AGES 0-2

    The smallest of our NorthRidgers have their own space during our Sunday Morning Services. There are always plenty of grown-up caregivers, just in case you'd like to let your little one play during the service. Or, you're welcome to hang out with other parents and their wee ones.

  • PREschoolers


    AGES 2-5

    When your child starts walking, there's more fun to be had. During the service, there will be a time for stories, songs and lots of play with their little buddies. 

  • the JUnction


    Kindergarten - gr.4

    Our school-aged students get to experience a whole new level of community in the Junction. Small groups, music worship, games and lessons will give your young students a great first impression of what it means to belong to the Church.

  • route 57



    Those 'tween years are made a little easier with a group of their own. As these students transition from the structured groups of their younger years, they learn what it really means to grow up together in community. These kids start the morning with the adults for a time of music worship, but still have lots of time for games and age-tailored lessons.




    Just before they're "released into the wild," we provide our youth-aged students with a class of their own. Like Route 57, they begin the morning in with the adults for music worship. Then, they have their own time of games and discussion-based learning as theMVMNT.

even more opportunities to meet during the week!

Being a kid at NorthRidge isn't JUST about Sundays. Look for these programs & events throughout the CALENDAR year!
