Student Ministry at “The Ridge” is about three things: studying God’s Word, fostering growth in each student’s relationship with God, and growing together as the family of God. The Ridge offers a place where students can feel like they belong- because they do! We will introduce young men and women to the God who created them week after week through three main Bible studies: Wednesday night worship, Sunday School, and a Sunday Night Bible Study. We also have small groups (divided by age and gender) following Wednesday night Bible studies where the kids can talk about the lesson with trained adults. We also offer Guys and Girls Bible studies, youth choir, mission trips and spiritual growth retreats throughout the year.
We offer a variety of ministries to our college students at Gardner-Webb University, Cleveland Community College, and the various other colleges nearby. We have a “Watchcare” program for college students who want to officially join our church without transferring their church letter from their home church. Watchcare students will be paired with sponsor families from the church so they can really get to know our members and feel right at home. We offer a College and Career Connect Group on Sunday Mornings, as well as other great opportunities for fun and fellowship.
