Inviting someone to a Watch Party is simple... just ask them!
Watch Parties are a way for you to watch our Weekend Service in community with those you already do life with... friends, neighbors, family! We’ve created special invitations and other fun resources for hosts (Note: Host resources are for pick up only, while supplies last). Register below to get started!
We want you to follow the current guidelines set out by the CDC and your state government. Currently, for Michigan, the recommendation for a social gathering inside, which does not include the same household, must not exceed 10 people.
Your home, your yard, a park; it's up to you! We want you to have an environment that allows for a successful event and is ready for your guests.
Have music playing when people arrive. Here is a link to our Spotify playlist. Depending on how you are viewing the service, make sure that everything is prepared. For example, if you are connecting a laptop to your TV, have it ready before people arrive; be ready to hit, "Play." Having food and/or drinks prepared is always a great addition when gathering people but use caution in how you share among your group.
As a host, we encourage you to enjoy the service, worship your heart out, pray with your group, and set the stage for God to move in the people at your Watch Party experience. And if someone makes a spiritual decision… Celebrate and pray with them!
We want kids to experience Jesus, too, if they are attending! Kids can be a part of the service experience with you, or RidgeKids will provide lessons and video content you can download for Preschool-Elementary. Our RidgeKids' Team is ready to help you if you have additional questions! If you have questions about RidgeKids, Contact Us.
We want to support and encourage you. Each week, we will provide additional content to keep the conversation going with the people at your Watch Party. Oh, and don't forget, we have those host resources to help you get started!
Make it memorable!
Post photos to your social media accounts and tag @NorthRidgeNews with the hashtag #NRWatchParty. These photos are conversation starters and can feature anything from the people you watched with to the yummy food you served!
When the service is over...
Encourage others to get connected; this could include texting NorthRige to 313131 if they just gave their life to Jesus or made a spiritual decision. Our team would love to follow up with them and send them a New Testiment Bible and some information!
What if someone wants to give?
Ask them to text "GIVE" to 313131 or visit NorthRidgeChurch.com/Give.
What do I do if someone in my Watch Party wants to get baptized?
Have them email their name and email to [email protected] or have them visit NorthRidgeChurch.com/Baptism... We'll take care of the rest!
How can our Watch Party guests share their story with NorthRidge?
We love to hear stories of what God is doing in the lives of people! They can email their story to [email protected]. If you have a story from your Watch Party, we'd love to hear that too!
