COVID-19 Update for Elk Ridge Youth

As concern over the spread of COVID-19 has reached Stephenville, Elk Ridge Baptist Church has suspended all physical gatherings until the pandemic has come under control and restrictions have been lifted. Our prayer is for those seeking a cure and those who are suffering from the physical and economical impacts of this pandemic.

Until we are able to once again meet physically, Elk Ridge Youth will be hosting Digital Youth Group on Zoom, weekly at 6PM on Wednesdays, on your phone, tablet, or computer. During Digital Youth Group, students will still be able to interact, participate in small groups, and study the Bible together with visual aids. Each week, the Meeting ID will be 380-384-060. Other information will be posted to our Facebook page. This is no match for being together, but we are doing our best to stay connected while we are apart. Download Zoom and we will "see" you Wednesday.

Who We Are

Our goal is to help teenagers Grow in their knowledge of God and the Bible, Love with a Christ-like love, and Serve God and others through acts of service, outreach, and missions.

When We Meet

The Youth Ministry is for all students in grades 7-12.

Normally, we meet Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

Elk Ridge Baptist Church, 634 East Rd // PO Box 14, Stephenville, TX 76401

What to Expect:

Come on in and grab a drink or some snacks. Hang out with your friends or play a game with the group. Then gather for a time of laughter, prayer, worship, and in depth study of the Bible. We believe that the Bible is living and active and speaks to our daily lives, so in all of our lessons we seek to apply God's Word to today's circumstances, confronting issues as they come and not apologizing for the truths of the Bible, but doing so in a spirit of humility and love.

We are who we are only because of the great love of our God in sending Jesus to die the sin death that we deserved. He did this when we were His enemies, when we were stuck in our corrupt and damaging sin patterns. We have all sinned and have all received the same forgiveness for sin that God offers through the grace of Jesus Christ. He died the death that we deserved so that we could live the life we were meant to live. That being, we are all recipients of grace, so we seek to extend that same grace to all those who come through the doors of our church. We seek to provide a welcoming environment for all teenagers and offer a loving and grace filled place for students to worship, no matter where they come from or where they are in their faith. We invite all teenagers to Come and See (John 1:39).

Current Study - Colossians.
