On Campus Missions

Cornerstone Women on Mission

This group of women supports and prays for missionaries serving in our community, state, North America, and the world. They participate in and promote International Missions (Lottie Moon Offering), North American Missions (Annie Armstrong Offering), and State Missions (Margaret Lackey Offering). Church-wide mission projects are shared throughout the year.  All Ridgecrest women are encouraged to get involved. Contact Edna Lambert at 601.853.1598.  

Deaf Ministry

Ridgecrest provides sign language interpretation at morning worship services on the right side of the worship center near the front. We also have a Life Group for the hearing impaired each Sunday morning at 9:00 in the Conference Room on the east side of the church. On Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm, we have beginning and advanced sign language classes in Room 102 for anyone who would like to learn how to sign. Childcare is provided. For more information contact Susie Grothe at 601.259.4832 or  .


ESL Classes meet on Wednesdays at 6:00pm on the 3rd Floor during the school year. These classes are offered at Ridgecrest to anyone in the community who speaks English as their Second Language (ESL). The classes will help them learn the English language and culture, and how to do tasks that may be new to them if they are new to the United States.  If you would like to join this class or know of someone who could benefit, please contact Paula Smith at  .   This class is growing quickly, so if you would like to volunteer to help (you don't have to know a foreign language), please contact Paula.
