We have programs for every child. We value children and want to partner with God and parents to build a faith foundation for life.
The four words we have defined as our mission with kids are: safe, fun, grow, and care.

Canyon Ridge Children's Ministry is a teaching ministry. It is not merely a childcare or support program. It is a dynamic and critical element of Canyon Ridge's mission "to seek and save the lost." Luke 19:10. The Children's Ministry is a cooperative effort between church and home.
We believe that ministry is best accomplished in teams where mutual support is received from serving together in "community". Our goal is to see each class function as a "small group", where volunteers experience encouragement and growth.
At Canyon Ridge, we use an automated check-in system that we ask each new family to register for. Families are able to register on the weekend at the Navigation Desk which is located downstairs at the Base Camp Building. Once registered, your child will check-in in their classroom. Three stickers are printed for each child checking into a room. The first sticker is placed in a log book, the second sticker is placed on the child and the third sticker is the parent's receipt. A random number is located on the top of each sticker and it is this number that will appear on the screen in the auditorium to page a parent. Parents must produce the parent receipt with a matching number in order to check out their child. All Children's Volunteers have completed the Youth Safety Class and have had a background check that includes a sex offender check.
Our Baby dedication ceremony is a 35 minute ceremony for the parents and families of babies and young children who wish to make a public commitment before God, and the community. The dedication service provides you with an opportunity to publicly express your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others. We offer Baby Dedication ceremonies on 2 to 3 dates per year. The next Baby Dedication ceremony will be held on May 18th at 3:15pm in the Chapel. Attending one baby dedication class prior to the ceremony is required to have your child dedicated. To register for a class, visit the events calendar at the bottom of our Preschool Page.
