Ridgeview Church

The "church for people who don't do church." An eclectic blend of Valley Centerites, music that runs the gamut from old-school hymns to rockin' contemporary Christian and sermons that are entertaining, thought-provoking and rarely boring.

Ridgeview Church is a great place to make new friends, reconnect with old ones, and discover God's purpose for your life. There's something for everyone, from an award winning preschool, to after school programs and youth groups. There are also a few different home study groups for men, women, and couples of all ages.
