Welcome to our church

We hope that you will take the opportunity to look and discover more about Park Ridge Free Methodist Church.

Children's Ministries


(ages 6 weeks- 3 years*)

A caring staff is here to care for and show God’s love to little ones while parents worship and learn. A safe environment allows for play, stories and song that enable even the youngest to experience God’s love at church.

We have a private nursing/sleeping room and we stock extra diapers, wipes and baby outfits for emergencies. Only parents/guardians are allowed to sign-in/out their children.


(PreK/K group for ages 3-5*, Elementary group for 1st-5th grade)

After Combined Praise & Worship time kids head to their respective classes for their own prayer time and lesson time reinforced by interactive activities, songs, object lessons and projects. Kids get the opportunity to learn God’s life lessons in a way they can remember and understand, as well as getting to pray together for the issues that concern them the most. PreK/K group still has a short play time and snack to accommodate friendship development and attention span.

*As all children develop at different rates, we invite parents of 3 year olds to work with teachers to decide whether the Nursery or Children’s Church is the best place for their child. Children are welcome to ‘move up’ in the middle of the year.


Available for ALL ages

Younger ones experience basic lesson’s about God’s love and other Bible stories, while older children really get “hands-on” learning with the energetic “Hands On Bible” Curriculum. Physical object lessons, crafts and stories all help to communicate God’s truth and love.

Kid's Praise Days and TOTS Praise alternates with Sunday School. Through Kid's and TOTS Praise we are Learning to Praise God Every Day, Many Ways ~ Using Prayer, Drama, Singing & Instruments.


Grades K-5, care also available for younger ages
September - May

WNKC is an energetic mix of learning and fun. Game Time, Lesson Time and Team Time all work together to help each kid learn the Key Point of the Week.

How does it work?
Game Time provides an active way to build relationships and get kids thinking. Lesson time shares the exciting Bible adventures. Team time lets us split into small, age-appropriate groups for discussion, more relationship building, help with Bible Memory Verses and prizes.

WNKC combines lessons that walk through the Bible with motivating patches that kids earn for their projects and Bible memorization, proudly displayed on their sashes.

Extra Fun!

Fun nights such as the Harvest Party, Christmas Craft & Movie Night, and a trip to Adventure Landing.

Come see how Joyful learning God’s Word can be!


We have ‘well-child’ care at Park Ridge Free Methodist Church. Please refrain from bringing your child if she/he has had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours: Fever, non-clear Runny Nose, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Rash (other than diaper) or Open Sores. This will enable us to promote the health and safety of all the children and workers we serve.
