For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
In our efforts to Serve Others, Ridgecrest offers many on-campus ministries for individuals to get involved. Through these ministries, you have the opportunity to use your gifts to impact your family, the church, and our community. Feel free to browse our current ministries and get involved in one that God leads you to.
On Campus Ministry
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.
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. To be part of this compassionate ministry, contact Paula Smith.
