Exists to fulfill the Mission of Riverside Church in the lives of 6th to 12th grade students and their families.
Through active participation in youth groups, Bible studies, events, etc. students have the opportunity
to grow into fully devoted followers of Christ.


High School Students join us weekly on Thursday mornings at 8am in Ridgetop Coffee for a 45 minutes bible study.


We know that our high school and middle school students need a place for age appropriate learning: a place where faith and life intersect. They need a place to unpack their questions from the Bible and study topics that are relative to their lives.


Students gather in a relaxed setting to play games, connect with friends and explore different topics.  Activities and interactive object lessons give us the chance to explore the teaching of Jesus Christ and how we live out faith in our everyday ordinary lives.


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.
