WEDNESDAYS @ 6:30-8:30PM (GRADES 6-12)

Big Lake Campus, Sauk Rapids Campus & RS Online

Riverside Students (RS) is all about reaching students (and everyone in their lives) to help them become fully-devoted followers of Jesus.

Simply put? It's all about relationships - which is why our weekly program and special events are designed to help students connect with each other, explore their faith, discover who God actually is and begin to live on purpose, with purpose for a purpose.

Our Wednesday night gathering is where we nurture this through fun games, timely teaching, inspiring music, memorable object lessons, wisdom from the Bible and more. We typically separate High School and Middle School into their own spaces and end the night with grade-based, same-gender "small groups" where they can experience a safe-yet-challenging place to belong and grow with peers and adult leaders.  All of this is meant to create authentic friendships that continue outside of our program, whether encouraging each other throughout the week or taking part in serving together. It's Jesus-centered, outward-focused and always practical.

In doing so we’re helping each other discover and live the best kind of life – the life God made us to live.  Among us you'll hear every kind of story imaginable, including how God is at work in all of our stories. It's why we'd love to hear your story, so join us this week.

Welcome home.  Welcome to Riverside Students.

It's your annual opportunity for you or your group of friends to share your talents up on stage!  Parents and others are invited to this fun night to support everyone participating.

RS Late night

Looking to hang out with friends (or make some new ones?)  We're providing the space, snacks & fun, including a short time to chat about a topic that matters to you.  Two separate times, one for MS & one for HS - bring a friend! 

easter experience

What if Easter wasn't just a time for tradition, but you could 'experience' what it might have been like during the week Jesus died and rose from the grave?  Bring your friends and come and see how much can happen in just three days.

Here's what's happening in RS!
