Your student doesn't have to wait until they're an adult to change the world — they can start right now.
Willow Ridge Students exists to engage, equip, and send your 6th to 12th grade student to make known the truth of the gospel — whether it's at school, at work, or around the world. We know your students are smarter and more capable than some people give them credit for, and we value that in the way we teach, gather, and serve together as a student ministry.
So... what does your Student Ministry look like?
We're glad you asked! Look below to see how Willow Ridge Students is designed to engage, equip, and send your student to make known the truth of the gospel.
Our students gather on Sunday nights from 4:00PM – 5:30PM for games, worship, a message, and small groups. Throughout the year, we have an incredible number of events that have included activities like laser tag, skiing, lock-ins and more. We live in a time where middle and high-schoolers are faced with an unprecedented information overload. Fun and games aren't at the center of what we do, but we know that they help our students build relationships and remain engaged – and some of our staff don't mind a little badminton or soccer now and then either!
We don't think there's any reason for your student to wait to experience Christian community until adulthood — so alongside our Sunday evening small groups, students also gather upstairs in the auditorium on Sunday mornings at 9:15 for Bible study before service. Starting on September 10th, this Bible study will begin at 9:00AM instead, to allow for all-ages Fellowship in the auditorium from 9:50AM – 10:15AM and Worship from 10:15AM – 11:30AM. Additionally, a bi-weekly high school Bible study takes place at Arby's on Wednesday mornings (we still can't believe Arby's has breakfast).
Our goal is to see the students at Willow Ridge love Jesus in a way that changes the world here and now. We strive to create opportunities for our students to be missionaries both locally and globally, and this can range from something as simple to volunteer days at church to something as exciting as flying to Utah for a week.
We're looking forward to seeing your student!
