Christmas at The Ridge

Christmas at The Ridge

You are invited to Christmas at The Ridge!

Join us for Christmas carols, the story and message of Jesus’ birth, special surprises and laughter, and a candlelight ending with a Christmas classic, Silent Night. You’re encouraged to invite your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and small groups—everyone is welcome!

Come early! You don’t want to miss the fun, and great family photo opportunities! There will be plenty of hot cocoa, coffee, Christmas sweets & treats, and holiday music for you to enjoy in the lobby before the service.

We have plenty of seats for everyone! If you don’t want to miss joyful videos, and an amazing musical opener, we recommend being seated in the auditorium 10 minutes before the service begins.

There’s something special about this time of year, and we look forward to celebrating it with you!

We will be offering limited kids programming for the services on Sunday, December 23rd and Monday, December 24th. Infants through children in pre-K can enjoy regular kids programming on Sunday at 9am and 11am. During the Christmas Eve services at 3pm and 6pm, programming for 1–3 year old children will be available.

We also invite and encourage all children to enjoy the Christmas services with their family!

Christmas Eve Luminaries

Light Up The Ridge
On Christmas Eve, a team will be assisting in the set-up and tear-down of luminaries around the church’s property. The luminaries will light up the sidewalks and driveway, and those attending the services will have an unforgettable experience driving through them! This project will need 20 volunteers for set-up before the 3pm service, and 10 volunteers for tear-down following the 6pm service. Help us create a magical experience!

Volunteers are needed for 3pm. If you would like to serve during this service on Christmas Eve, please sign up below. Questions? Email
