Ministries

Here at Ridgecrest Baptist Church, our mission is simple: We exist to Reach the lost, Build the believer, and Connect people to the purpose and mission of God. One of the ways we accomplish this is through our ministries. Through our ministries, one can serve, grow, and find community with other believers. We look forward to you being a part of our family.

Nursery & Children's

Each Sunday morning the Ridgecrest Kids program engages children to worship and study God's word in an age appropriate environment. These worship and learning times coincide with the adult service and connection group times. Each Wednesday night, Ridgecrest Kids holds service from 6 p.m.to 7 p.m. Children will participate in LifeGroups based on age and or grade level. They will learn more about Christ and how to have a relationship with Him. The LifeGroup doors open at 5:45 p.m., and we kindly request that all children are picked up no later than 7:30 p.m. Children (1st - 5th grades) During each Sunday morning worship service, Ridgecrest Kids will participate in Connection Groups and a group Kids Church. In these environments, they will explore God’s Word and worship in age-appropriate environments.

Students

Each Sunday students are encouraged to attend worship service as a family in the main sanctuary. At 9:45 a.m. students can attend a connection group based on their grade level where they will learn more about Christ and developing a relationship with him in today's world. On Wednesday nights we strongly believe and support corporate worship; therefore, students have two types of night services: 6th-8th grade, which starts at 6 p.m. And 9th-12th grade that starts at 7 p.m. Attending one of our Wednesday worship service is a great way to check out the student ministry for the first time.

Men's

We believe that being connected in a Connection Group is critical to your spiritual growth. In addition, we have several of our classes that are men’s only groups. We also attend annual men's conferences and organize other activities where men can lean on each other. Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
