Here at Ridgedale our desire is to see college students meaningfully connect to Christ and His church by encountering Christ, equipping disciples, and engaging the nations.
We seek to be a community that disciples, supports, and encourages one another to grow in our relationship with Jesus while seeing those far from Jesus come into a personal, saving relationship with Him. We want our college students to leave with more than just a degree.
Listed below are some of the ways we’d love to connect with you through our weekly programming.
College Community Groups: Sundays at 10:15 am
Our College Ministry meets weekly on Sunday mornings at 10:15am in our college ministry room (between the two services) for prayer and community. Our goal for this time is to slow down a bit and take time to connect with God in prayer and to encourage one another. We break into smaller groups and explore God’s Word together. This semester we will study who we are in Christ and how that affects our lives. Afterwards, head in with your friends to either our traditional or Encounter (contemporary) services as we worship corporately as the Church!
College Worship Nights: Sunday, September 10, October 1, & December 3 at 6:30pm
Once a month during the semester, our college ministry comes together for a worship service on Sunday nights at 6:30pm. Our fall dates are September 10, October 1, and December 3. Through the semester, we’ll look at what the apostle Paul considers three important virtues: faith, hope and love. We will also have corresponding Bible studies on Christ-like characteristics that the Holy Spirit wants to develop within us throughout the semester on Sunday nights. These dates will be provided at our worship nights.
College Family Lunches: August 20, September 24, October 15, November 19
One Sunday per month after church, we will have a free lunch for all our college family after worship. Families eat together, so come and let’s share a meal together! This is a great place to build community and a perfect first place to join us if you’re new to our church!
Each Tuesday during the semester our college ministry will be at Chattanooga State Community College. While we’re there each week, we care for the campus by handing out free snacks and school supplies! Drop by outside the amphitheater and say hello! We will also have a weekly Bible study through the book of Luke and an opportunity for conversation with Christians. Whether you are a follower of Jesus, a skeptic, an atheist, or simply someone who’s curious, we invite you to come and ask any question about God, the Bible, or anything you’re curious about. We won’t know it all, but we would love to have a healthy conversation about it.
Bible Study through Luke in the Cafeteria —10:15am
Free Snacks & Supplies in the Amphitheater — 11:15am
