Matthew 5:16 says,
“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
Consisting of grades 7-12th, our student ministry seeks to REACH students for Jesus, BUILD students in a discipleship process, and CONNECT students to their purpose and the mission of God. This is done through weekly, monthly, and yearly intentional events, small groups, retreats, camps, and mission opportunities. We have a place for you to feel loved, connected, and a part of this mission!
Each Sunday at Ridgecrest is focused on reaching middle schoolers and high schoolers and building them up in the word of God and Worship. Students have the opportunity to worship with their families at our 8:15 Blended Worship Service or our 10:50 Contemporary Worship Service. At 9:30, we have Student Breakfast at The Spot, which is on the second floor by the RFC (Gym). Immediately following this breakfast we have Student Connection Groups. These groups offer a great atmosphere for studying God's Word, growing in biblical community, and encouragement to seek Christ-like obedience. We would love for you to join us!
Wednesdays are all about Students! We focus Wednesday nights around reaching all 7th-12th graders in the Wiregrass area! We have two intentional worship services focused on this goal. From 6-7 pm, our Middle School Worship service brings a fun atmosphere that gives 7th-8th graders a time to engage in a fun game, experience worship through song, and focus on a time of study in God's Word. Then from 7-8, our High School Worship service focuses on an intimate time of worship and message from God's Word. Our gym is open from 5:30-8:30 for these students to enjoy, hang out with their friends, do their homework, and wait for older or younger siblings during the other services.
Sunday: Currently, we are not having Connection Groups; however, we hope that you join us digitally. At 10am on Sunday Mornings, we go live on Instagram @rbc_students with our CG Live. This offers a time of fun and interaction along with that week’s Bible Study. We also offer a Family Connection Guide on Instagram and Facebook for the family to engage together. We hat this time of uncertainty but hope to see you join us!
Wednesday Nights: On Wednesday Nights, we offer a time of fellowship and a worship service from 6-7:30pm in the grass parking lot in front of the sanctuary. If there is a chance of rain, our service will be moved into the RFC at Ridgecrest. This has been a very effective way to social distance students, and we have enjoyed being able to worship outside.
God has blessed Ridgecrest Students with influence all over the Wiregrass area and we see this as an opportunity to send students into our dark world to shine their light for God's glory! Please pray with us for this generation to be used by God to REACH, BUILD, and CONNECT for His glory.
