Sunday School offers a time of study and reflection on God's Word in a small group setting. This provides a chance for interaction with people who share similar interests or age groups. There is a class for everyone from nursery to senior adults. Please join us at 9:45 am each Sunday morning.
Youth, ages sixth grade through high school attend Sunday School and other ministries in the church. In the Youth Department, we seek to lead our students to a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, to grow as close as possible to Him and to seek His will for our lives.
Senior Adult Ministry
Regular senior adult trips offer anyone old and young alike the chance to go on field trips to different places in western N.C. Great fun and fellowship often accompanies an excellent meal at different restaurants. The trips are advertized in our bulletin and newsletter which can be found on this site.
Discipleship Training is offered three semesters throughout the year. In the fall, winter and spring the pastor or lay person leads an in-depth study on a variety of topics. Meeting time to be announced.
Ridgeway Baptist Church recognizes the pivotal role music plays in the worship of God. Be it in congregational or choral settings, music allows those who participate to articulate their faith with other believers and express feelings that may lie beyond mere words. As a congregation, we express our heart for the Lord through time-honored hymns and modern praise songs. Every Sunday, our adult choir provides worship music incorporating many different musical styles. Whether honoring our roots through old-time gospel or looking to the future through exploring songs by contemporary writers, the goal of this group is to exalt the name of the Lord. Solo singers and instrumentalists employ their God-given gifts in weekly worship, sharing their faith through song.Seasonally, we celebrate the beauty and majesty of Christmas and Easter with annual musicals. Other occasions, like Thanksgiving, allow us to join together with other church choirs in the Enka-Candler area. Bi-annually we hold talent nights, encouraging all segments of our congregation to share their unique musical skills with our church family. In all seasons, we seek to bring glory to Jesus!
Intercessory Prayer Ministry
Prayer partners meet on Sunday Morning for intercessory prayer. Prayer requests are gathered from our church family and community. Names are usually left on the prayer list for an extended period of time.
