Lower Level Reno

The Vision

Ridge Kids and Ridge Youth are growing.  Over the next two years we want to totally transform the lower level of the building to provide spaces that are secure, fun, comfortable, and technologically up-to-date.  

The Plan

The renovation will reconfigure the lower level to meet our current needs.  Since 2020, Ridge Kids has used the Fellowship Hall for their main worship space using temporary walls to provide separation.  This however does not provide much security to keep non-volunteers out of the space and children from leaving the space before being picked up.  Since we are now serving fellowship meals in the sanctuary (thanks to the conversion from pews to chairs), we don't need a separate fellowship hall.  The new walls will secure the area for our younger kids and create a formal lobby and check in area. New flooring, paint, benches, projection and sound systems will complete the upgrades.
The Youth Room is shifted over and a more accessible and prominent entry will be created along with another door for access to a shared game room.   This room will also serve as the meeting space for the Next Step classes.  Much needed upgrades to their projection, lighting, and sound systems are planned along with new seating.  

The addition of a hallway from the stairs that lead from the platform in the sanctuary will further secure the area and streamline a path for those being baptized to the lower level restrooms.   It is also a direct path to a lounge space that can be used for meetings and small group gatherings.  This room will also get new flooring, built-in storage and comfortable seating.

The Breakdown

Classroom Flooring
Commercial grade flooring in the classrooms that line the perimeter of the space. Three large classrooms and one smaller room.
Back Staircase Carpet
The staircase that leads from the back of sanctuary platform to the lower level is utilized every Sunday by our worship team and on Water Baptism Sundays for those being baptized.
Wall Reconfiguration
New walls will secure the Ridge Kids space and provide a lower level lobby. The Youth Room will shift in to make way for a new back hallway that will connect the staircase to the lower level lobby and green room.

Commercial grade flooring for the newly walled in Ridge Kids worship space.
Ridge Youth Flooring
Commercial grade flooring for the Ridge Youth worship space.
