Ridgecrest middle school and PRETEENS

3 John 1:4 says, "I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are walking in truth."

The Middle School and Preteen Ministry here at Ridgecrest Baptist Church consists of 5th and 8th graders. Our goal for this ministry is to build intentional relationships while seeking the Lord in all that we do. We want to be an INTENTIONAL in all that we do. From worship times to game nights and off campus activities, everything we do is focused on building intentional relationships. We achieve this through Connection Groups, midweek Middle School and Preteen Worship, and various retreats, camps, and mission opportunities throughout the year. We hope your middle schooler or preteen will join us as we reach to achieve this mission!


Every Sunday at Ridgecrest is focused on reaching our middle schoolers and preteen students and building them up with the Word of God. All students are encouraged to attend either our 8:15 AM blended service or our 10:50 contemporary service with their families. From 9:30 to 10:45 AM, we offer a time for breakfast and a Connection Group for 5th and 6th graders in rooms E-207 and E-208. For 7th and 8th graders, we offer breakfast in The Spot and a Connection Group in rooms E-202 and the Craft Room from 9:30 to 10:45 AM. We believe this creates a great time of studying God's Word for our middle schoolers and preteens while growing relationally with their peers. We would love to have you join us!


On Wednesday nights from 5:30 to 7:30, we offer Middle School and Preteen Worship in the Middle School and Preteen Worship room, D-201. From 5:30 to 6:00, we hang out in our Game Room, D-202. Immediately following this, we have a time of worship together through song and then we hear from God's Word from 6:00-6:40. From 6:40-7:00, we gather in intentional small groups divided by grade and gender to reflect on our week and what we have learned. We hope to see you soon!
