6th - 12th Grades
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.
Revolution is the middle school ministry for students in 6-8th grades. This high-energy experience is designed for middle school students, so they encounter God in a way that’s unique to their age and life stage. At Revolution, students will worship through singing & hear practical Bible teaching that speaks to everyday life. After the session students break into smaller groups to discuss the teaching from the night, share about their life and pray for one another.
Small Groups are the most important thing we do!
Middle School groups meet on Wednesday nights. Here are some specifics about our Middle School groups.
– Groups are grade and gender-specific.
– Students get to choose their group.
– Groups range in size from 4-15 students.
– There are 1 to 2 adult leaders in each group.
Reckless is the high school ministry for students in 9-12th grades. In the 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.
Starting August 8th, we are excited to announce that we will be moving Reckless to Sunday nights from 6-8pm, in order to reach more students in our community. We look forward to this new season of ministry and we invite all high school students to join us!
Even though we won’t have weekly services over the summer, there are several ways for high school students to take steps in their faith with us:
Over the summer, students can journey together in a text devotional called KING JESUS. Students who join will receive weekly devotionals and daily Scripture reading via text, and students will be challenged to discover not only that Jesus is King, but how to respond to that. To join, text (all one word) KINGJESUS to 770.222.2125.
This summer, we are inviting any high school students who want to make their whole life about Jesus to join our 4-week Discipleship Group called ALL IN. Starting Wednesday, June 23rd, high schoolers will be taught what it looks like to give everything to Jesus and follow Him with their whole heart. Students will be given the tools and experience necessary to passionately and courageously follow Jesus. To join, text ALLIN to 770.222.2125.
We are excited to welcome rising 9th grade students into our high school ministry this Fall! We have 2 Pool Parties for our rising 9th graders this summer:
Sunday, June 27th from 6-9pm and Sunday, July 25th from 6-9pm
at The Marblestone’s Home (175 Tumlin Path, Acworth, GA 30101)
At these pool parties, we will also talk with students about high school. With the change from Middle School to High School comes all-new pressure, temptations, changes in friendships, and more. We want to help prepare students for this so they can own their faith in a powerful way in high school!
