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.
Because we believe that the Bible teaches that baptism is something that happens after a person has made a personal decision to follow Christ, we do not baptize children younger than 1st grade as we do not feel they can understand the decision clearly. For infants and babies, we offer a baby dedication service for parents.
