Cadets is our club for boys in grades 3 thru 8 and meets on two Wednesday nights each month from 6:30 to 8:30pm at the same time as GEMS. Each Cadet meeting features a Bible lesson, a small group time and an activity time where Cadets work on a project with their counselors or watch a guest speaker do a demonstration as part of a merit badge.
The theme for Cadets this year is “Get in the Game” where the boys are challenged to live out their faith and not just watch from the sidelines.
GEMS is our club for girls in grades 2 thru 7 and meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the same time as Cadets. It is a safe place for girls to discover who God created them to be. Our goal is to help the girls find Jesus, live out God’s word, and be witnesses to others. This year our theme is "Love Overflows." We are reminded about how much God loves us and how deep that love is. Love is who God is and what he does! God's Love fills the earth and overflows. We will discover together how deeply God loves us and how God calls us to love others!
Spark is for students in grades 6, 7& 8. Spark meets in the youth room on the first and third Wednesday Night of the month during the school year from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
Each meeting includes time for fellowship, a Bible lesson that relates to the lives of Middle School students and a fun group game related to our theme for the night.
Ridgewood’s High School youth group is called Flame and meets twice a month on Sunday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the youth room. We have dinner together (either at Ridgewood’s evening supper service on the first Sunday of the month or as part of our Flame meeting on the third Sunday of the month). Flame strives to help our high school students become mature Christians through fellowship, studying God’s word, prayer and acts of service.
