Riverside Students

Who We Are

We love this generation!

Maybe you do, too. Perhaps you're a parent who wants your son or daughter to be well-invested into. Or you're a student hoping we'll welcome you in and help you take your next steps with God. It could be you're a possible adult volunteer who is wondering if we're someone you want to partner with in reaching teenagers and pre-teens. To all of these we say, "Welcome to the family!"

Jesus-Centered, Outward-Focused

Riverside Students (RS) is a Jesus-centered, outward-focused ministry for Middle School and High School students.

It's all about reaching students (and everyone in their lives) to help them become fully-devoted followers of Christ.

We love and lead the emerging generation to say “YES” to Jesus, explore who God made them to be and equip them to reach others for Christ. We do this through relationships that are formed through our weekly gatherings and intentional events so that every student can take part in a grace-giving community of peers and leaders willing to walk alongside of them throughout the highlights and hurdles of life.

Simply put, Jesus Christ is the foundation of our student ministry and we value what He values. Everything we do is to help students experience grace, grow in love and give of themselves.

We'd love to see every teenager and pre-teen in our area become a part of what He is doing here, so join us this week. Just know that we're real people, too. While we do our best to be at our best, we're flawed and need grace just as much as anyone. That means Riverside Students (RS) will never be perfect nor built around programs, personalities or gimmicks. Rather, we're a whole team of people working on an everyday, real relationship with God Himself and His eternal purposes.

We gather in two locations - Big Lake and Sauk Rapids - from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Welcome to Riverside Students. Welcome home.
