The goal of Riverside Student Ministries is to encourage 6th to 12th grade students to become fully devoted followers of Christ by CONNECTING them to God and each other, EMPOWERING them to use their God given gifts, and IMPACTING their community and world with God’s love.
We have a variety of weekly offerings and special events through the year for our Middle and High School Students. Here are just a few of the things we have going on:
Sunday School. We know that our high school and middle school students need a place for age appropriate learning. A place where faith and life and intersect. A place we can unpack our questions from the Bible and study topics that are relative to their lives. Sunday mornings at 9:45am is our opportunity to do all of that, as well as get connected with other teens who are looking to do the same thing.
Camps, Retreats, Trips and Service Projects. Through the year there are different opportunities to get out of town. Each summer we have large groups of high school students from our youth group and the community going to our retreat at the beach, affectionately known as OCNJ. Our middle school students head to the mountains in July for their retreat, On the Edge. The high school students participate in a winter retreat President’s Day weekend at Rockbridge Young Life Camp. We also offer opportunities for all students to get involved in the local community through service projects.
