We are resuming in-person services this Sunday, July 5. In-person services are at 9:30 and 11:00am, and our online service is at 9:30am. Check out theridge.org/updates for more details.

This Sunday, July 5, we will resume in-person services. They will be held at 9:30 and 11:00am. 

If you would like to continue to attend online, the service can be joined live on our Facebook page at 9:30am on Sunday, or can be viewed on our website following the livestream. The bulletin can be viewed here or in the YouVersion Bible App


Do you have questions about regathering? Here are some of our frequently asked questions: 

Absolutely! Our online service will be moving to 9:30am starting on Sunday, July 5, but will continue to be available even with in-person services resuming. We encourage those who are high-risk or are more comfortable attending online at this time to do so.

You certainly can bring your family! Since we will not be having children’s programs at this time, kids will join us in the auditorium, and the atrium will be available if you need to step out with your child. We ask that families sit together in the auditorium, so that we can maximize the number of individuals in the room, while still social distancing.

  • Doors will open 15 minutes ahead and we ask that you stay in your vehicle until then. Once the doors open, you will head straight into the auditorium for the service.
  • Once inside the building, our volunteers will be in masks, and we encourage those in attendance to wear masks as well, though they will not be required for entry.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the atrium, and restrooms will have handwashing instructions. All hard surfaces will be sanitized before and after the services (and will receive an industrial-grade sanitization between each Sunday).
  • In the auditorium, chairs will be spread out to allow for social distancing. Two chairs will be left open between each family.
  • At this time, the cafe will be closed (bring your own coffee!), and the atrium desks will be closed.
  • If you do wish to gather after the service, we ask that you do so outside in the parking lot/playground area, and stay socially distant.
  • We are discontinuing printed bulletins, and digital bulletins are available at theridge.org/updates, or in the YouVersion Bible app (under the “events” tab in the app).
  • Offering buckets will not be passed, but giving can be dropped in the buckets in the atrium after the service, or can be given online at theridge.org/give.

All volunteers in the building will be in masks, and we are strongly encouraging masks be worn by all in attendance, but at this time, they are not required. 

No sign up necessary. We have a capacity number that we can fit in the auditorium, and if we reach that number, the auditorium would be closed to additional guests. We then have several overflow spaces that we will use if necessary, which have the same social distancing approach.

If we are made aware that someone who attended was diagnosed, we will share any information regarding that to theridge.org/updates. Keep an eye on that page for any important information. If you have been in attendance and then are diagnosed, please inform us at so that we can update folks who were in attendance.

In the big picture, not a lot. We’re still a church that is doing whatever it takes to reach our community for Christ. No matter if we’re at home and apart, or in the building and just six feet apart, that is still our vision. Sure, things may look a little different, and the smell of hand sanitizer may be a little stronger, but we’re still doing what we can to reach our community (near and far) for Christ.

You can email us at , or call us at 812.376.8455, and we’d be happy to help!
