Students - West Ridge Church

West Ridge Students


The vision of West Ridge Students is simple: We lead students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

By partnering with parents and creating environments specifically for middle and high school students, we help them claim their faith as their own and live it out every day.


MIDDLE SCHOOL | 6th-8th Grade

**Student Services do not meet during the Summer, we will be back on August 6th and can’t wait to see you then!**

Services: Tuesday Nights from 7:00pm-9:00pm

Revolution is the middle school ministry for students in 6-8th grades. This high-energy service is designed for middle schoolers, so they experience God in a way that’s unique to their age and life stage. Each week students experience worship through singing and practical Bible teaching that speaks to every day life.

After the program, students go to small groups based on age and gender. In these groups, they get a chance to grow in community with other students, ask questions, and explore a Bible lesson with an adult leader.

HIGH SCHOOL | 9th-12th

**Student Services do not meet during the Summer, we will be back on August 7th and can’t wait to see you then!**

Services: Wednesday Nights from 7:00pm-9:00pm

Reckless is the high school ministry for students in 9-12th grades. In weekly services and the small groups that follow, students are challenged to live life completely committed to following Jesus over everything else.. Why? So they can glorify God and reach the world with His love. Like the middle school experience, high school students have a service filled with worship through music and practical Bible teaching, followed by groups for the guys and ladies by grade.
