Jesus is the Center of Everything We Do

Worship

Each Wednesday night at Chapel Ridge, starting at 6:30, our student-led leadership team begins the night by leading the middle school in praise and worship.

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” – Jesus

Connect

After the message, students separate into groups based on grade and gender with small group leaders. This setting creates a comfortable environment for meaningful discussion and questions.

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” – Jesus

Reach

Wednesday night is a blast for students, but the fun goes far beyond midweek! We offer many opportunities for students to serve at church or in our community.

Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” – Jesus
