High School & Middle School Ministry

Riverwood Student Ministries partners with families to empower students to develop an authentic and lasting faith in Jesus Christ in which they understand, articulate, and are transformed by the gospel, and embrace their place in the church family.

We recognize that we are fully dependent on the work of the Holy Spirit in order for this to be accomplished.

In order to achieve this, students will need to trust in God’s authority, reject spiritual apathy, and be counter cultural. We desire to accomplish this vision by discipling students through teaching and leaders that are shaped by God’s word, by connecting them to a fun and meaningful small group community, and by equipping and mobilizing them to love and serve others for the glory of God.

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Sundays @ 9:30am in the Student Center

We aim to provide a space for students to study God’s Word and seek its application in a peer-to-peer setting. Every Sunday morning at 9:30am, we create this environment in the Student Center near the gym. You can join us, enjoy some cinnamon rolls, find a spot at a table, hang out, participate in an organized game, and then engage in a discussion about scripture and life.

Small Groups

Various times and places throughout the year

Small Groups play a crucial role in discipleship within our High School Ministry. These gatherings primarily take place on Sunday nights in the homes of either a background-checked leader or a host family. Our groups are divided by gender and grade, each led by at least two responsible adult leaders. This is an opportunity to be part of a deeper and more intimate small group community.

Sunday Night Gathering

First Sunday of the Month
6:30–8:30pm in the Student Center & Gym

Although small groups are fantastic, we also value coming together as a larger community. So, on the first Sunday night of each month, we all gather at the church for an event that can only be described as epic. We hang out, enjoy food, engage in some fun and crazy games, and then, most importantly, we come together to worship and discuss Jesus. This event takes place from 6:30–8:30pm, with doors opening at 6pm.
