Semester begins on January 10th, 2024.


A study in the book of Daniel

Teacher: Hoyt Samples | Wednesdays, 6-7p | Rm 102-103 |

The focus of this class will be the book for Daniel. The book of Daniel is a favorite for Sunday school teachers and students alike. And for good reason. It has all the makings of a great story—memorable characters, cliffhanger drama, and science fiction–like visions. It’s like Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings with a dash of Star Wars thrown in! This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It will be lecture-based with some discussion at the end.

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

Teacher: Ryan McBride | Wednesdays, 6:15-7:30p | Ridgedale Room | Starts April 10th 5 Weeks

We are all busy. Some of us can’t remember the last time we rested or even had free time. Our busyness can feel productive but it is a toxic distraction, sapping our spiritual, physical, and emotional vitality. It may seem like we have no choice but to live at a frantic pace, but God has a better path for us. 

John Mark Comer in this five-part series addresses one of the greatest threats to our spiritual lives: hurry. Instead of allowing our calendars and screens to control our lives, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace, and beauty. The book is not required but can be purchased HERE.

Help is Here

Leader: Penny Holloway | Wednesdays, 6-7:30p | College Room | $12

The focus of this class will be the book Help is Here, by Max Lucado. This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It is lecture and discussion-based.

When you feel powerless . . . help is here. Bills pile up. Savings go down. Marriages go south. Work goes off the rails. Stress goes off the charts. It’s all too much to take on by yourself. Fortunately, you don’t have to take it all on yourself. In fact, God never intended for you to do so. He has provided heaven-sent help to walk with you, guide you, and shoulder the load. Someone who never gets tired. Someone who is strong and powerful. Someone who is unhindered by what hinders us. Someone who is always nearby.


Teacher: Teresa Regan | Wednesdays, 5–6p | Hospitality Room | $10

When Jesus sent messages to the seven churches, they were timely and accurate. But two thousand years later, in the twenty-first century, those messages can help us and our churches as well. Their primary meaning can have personal application for life. But those seven letters also have an uncanny prophetic significance. Viewed in hindsight, the seven letters seem to chart the historical unfolding of the Christian Church from then until now. This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It is lecture and discussion-based.

Acts: Awakening to God in Our Everyday Life

Teacher: Kim Nichols | Thursdays, 9:30-11a | Ridgedale Room |

Starting back on August 17th, Thursday. In Acts: Awakening to God in Our Everyday Lives, a six-week study of the Book of Acts by Melissa Spoelstra, you will journey with the first followers of Jesus and witness the birth and growth of the early church through spiritual awakening to the power of God’s Spirit, message, freedom, grace, mission, and direction.



Teacher: Group lead | Wednesdays, 6-7:30p | Rm 207 | $10

The focus of this class will be the book of Isaiah. We will be using Exalting Jesus in Isaiah as part of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It is lecture and discussion-based.


Ridgedale’s Kids Ministry exists to partner with parents and families to help kids encounter Christ, equip disciples, and engage the nations! For that reason, all of our efforts for kid’s ministry happen on Sunday mornings! After much prayer and feedback from parents and volunteers offering a Wednesday night program was not supporting kids and families best. Click the link below for the Sunday lineup.


Student Worship Service (House Night)

Leader: Chris Frakes | Wednesdays, 6-7:30p | The Living Room

House Night is a time for students grades 6-12 to come together for a time of fellowship, community, and worship as the family of God. Gather in the gym or Living Room (across from the gym) for some hang out time before we dive into worship through song and the Word at 6:15p. We’ll wrap up the nights with a quick time in small groups to discuss the lesson and then break the night in with a challenge. Stick around after for some basketball, soccer, or just hanging out.
