River Run Student Ministry exists to equip students with a deep love for Christ while empowering parents to form and influence the heart of their student. We accomplish this by teaching the gospel, providing outreach opportunities, pouring God’s truths into their lives through small groups and one-on-one mentoring situations and providing support and information to the parents.  Through each opportunity provided, students should be challenged to examine their lives and compare them with God’s standards so they may be continually growing in their faith.

GROUP NIGHT - WEEKLY @ 6pm

God created us to connect with Him and each other. Everyone needs community, even students…ESPECIALLY students. 

We want to offer our students a safe place to grow and thrive with others as we all learn what it looks like to be a Christ follower in a world that doesn’t know Christ. Small groups are the perfect place to do just that. We have groups for middle school boys, middle school girls, high school boys, and high school girls.
 
We believe that by simply showing up, joining up, and being real, our students will find incredible encouragement through their connections with God and other people.
 
*Every student will be required to wear a mask and observe 6′ social distance to ensure a safe environment from COVID. Please do not attend if you have had symptoms or been exposed to COVID within 10 days.
 

If you're joining us in person come hangout at 6pm on Wednesdays.

CONNECT ONLINE AT THESE TIMES:
HS Girls: 7pm
MS Girls: 7pm
All Boys: 7pm

Just for You

Dig deeper into the Word with these daily and weekly devotions.

As a student, you’ve heard people say “you’re the future of the Church.” This is partly true; however, according to the New Testament, every Christian is the Church right now. You have purpose now—not just for the future. This devotional is designed to cultivate students’ hearts to be the Church now by telling others about Jesus.
