Plan Your Visit

Contact Us
When you arrive, you may park in any space. If you have any questions, feel free to ask the greeter at the front door who can also provide you with a bulletin. And please help yourself to a free cup of coffee and bagel or donut.
You may also make a nametag at the table next to the welcome desk in the commons or fill out a Connect Card at the front table if you would like to find out more about us, and someone will contact you later in the week.
The Sunday morning service begins at 10 AM with songs, a brief welcome and prayer, followed by the message and communion.
During communion, we invite the community to participate as they feel comfortable. Communion is served at tables in the front or by servers near the side doors.
Around the room, you will find stations where you may light a candle, write a prayer, or make a financial offering. Prayer Servants, identified by the badges hanging around their necks, are available in the back corner of the room to pray with you for any need.
Afterward, join us for a brief welcome and introduction at Cedar Ridge in 7 Minutes which takes place in the back left corner of the auditorium as you are heading out the main doors. You can stop by and ask any questions you may have, and also learn a bit more about who we are, where we have been, and where we are going.

Services on Sunday at 10 AM

We know it can be difficult to visit a new church, and one Sunday is usually not enough opportunity to find out all there is to know. We encourage you to come at least three times to get a sense for who we are. We look forward to meeting you!

FROM I-95: Take Route 198 West to Burtonsville (I-95 exit #33B). Continue west across Route 29. Go 2 miles past Route 29. Cedar Ridge will be on your right.

FROM THE WASHINGTON BELTWAY:Take Colesville Road/Rt.29 North toward White Oak. Continue on Route 29 for about 9 miles. You will pass the White Oak Shopping Center (on the right), the Bell Atlantic complex (on the left), Fairland Road, Briggs Chaney, and Greencastle Road. (Watch signs carefully – there is presently construction on Route 29.) Watch for the signs showing an exit-only lane to the right leading you to Route 198.  Take that exit, and at the light at the end of the ramp, you will take a left onto Route 198. Go 2 miles. Cedar Ridge is on the right.

If you visit with children, please stop by the Cedar Ridge Kids’ table which is located to your left as you enter the building. Most Sundays, younger children (infant through 5th grade) can attend an age-appropriate program while adults are in the service.

You can register at the table where you and your child will receive a nametag and a temporary identification number. We will notify you if you are needed during the service with a number which will appear on a monitor above the projection screens. A volunteer at the Children’s Ministry Table will let you know what need your child has. When you pick up your child after church, you may turn in your number.

Children of all ages are also always welcome in our main service. If your pre-schooler will be joining you in the service, you may borrow a ‘Big Church Bag’ with some quiet toys and activities. The bags are handed out at the Cedar Ridge Kids’ table.  Our service allows time for moving around, as well as being still, and sitting on the floor or stretching your legs around the room are encouraged!

We welcome your middle or high school student to visit us too! Middle and High School Groups meet in the barn which is located on the right as you approach the main building.

Middle School is comprised of 6th-8th graders and meets on the lower level of the barn. High School meets in the upper level of the barn. Both groups meet for the entire service. Students and parents can agree on where they wish to meet after the service–either in the barn or main building.
