Cedar Ridge Children & Youth

Children and youth are a priority for us at Cedar Ridge. On Sundays, different age groups for school children and young adults cover similar topics as adults, so families can have conversations together. We believe we all grow best through relationships, so we encourage lots of interactions between adults, young people, and children. We discuss stories from the Bible, current events, and various life challenges, and look for creative ways to help children experience and share God’s love.



Cedar Ridge Kids

Cedar Ridge Kids has now resumed in-person activities on Sunday mornings at 10AM for kids ages 2 through 5th grade. Though we are not currently providing staffed care for children under 2, a Parent-Child Wiggle Room is available in the Nursery. Recognizing that our children are currently not vaccinated, we have developed practices we use when we meet in-person this fall to help ensure the safety of all children and volunteers. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 in the area, and make adjustments accordingly.

When families are ready to return to in-person services, you can expect that:

    • We will meet outdoors whenever possible, taking advantage of the open and shaded spaces on our 63-acre property.
    • When the weather requires, we will move to our indoor classrooms with physically distanced seating, air purifiers, upgraded HVAC filters, and appropriate indoor activities.
    • Masks will be required indoors and outdoors, and we’ll use techniques and activities designed to maintain physical distancing.
    • Children will have individual supplies, and hand sanitizer will be available and used frequently.

Please stop by the outdoor Cedar Ridge Kids Welcome Desk when you arrive to check in. We look forward to getting to know your child!

You can sign up to stay informed about these kinds of events, and you can contact Pastor of Children, Bryan Peterson, if you’d like to find out more about Cedar Ridge Kids.

Welcome to Cedar Ridge Kids! Although things look a little different right now as a result of the pandemic, we continue to find ways to stay connected and support our kids and youth. Please don’t hestitate to reach out by email if you have a question.

Pastor of Children


Middle and High Schoolers meet in the Barn each Sunday at 10AM for socially-distanced gatherings. Masks are required. We discuss the same topics as in the adult services in a fun and interactive way. For more information, please contact Trish Audi.


I’m passionate about working with young people and helping them figure out who they are and who Jesus is to them because I struggled in middle and high school with those issues and heard Psalm 139 about how I’m a wonderful work of God.
