At Walnut Ridge, we strive to create environments for students to be equipped, experience community, and to tell their story. Each week they experience Jesus-centered and Kingdom-focused time together.


Through lively discussions about Bible passages, students learn about God’s Word while growing closer to Jesus and others. Students meet in small groups with friends, usually their same age and grade. Energetic volunteers lead students to walk in obedience to the Lord during the week. Students study the Bible, book by book, focusing on the same passages as their parents' classes.

  • 360 CAMPUS :: 10:30am :: South Building
  • WEST CAMPUS :: 9:00am :: Students Room


Whether before or after Sunday School, students attend the worship service in the Sanctuary.


Ridge Students offers a semester-based weekly gathering at church with fellowship, games, worship and teaching. Students enjoy a casual and energetic environment to relieve mid-week stress while building new friendships.

Walnut Ridge Baptist Church strives to provide a safe and secure environment for the minors who participate in our programs and activities, whether at authorized off-campus events or at church property. By following these practices, our goal is to protect the children and students of Walnut Ridge Baptist Church from incidents of misconduct or inappropriate behavior, while providing excellence in ministry to families. We intend for our church to be the safest place in town. All volunteers who come in contact with minors are screened and trained: (1) Submit to background check every two years; (2) Attend child safety training; (3) Take child safety test upon completion of training. These training materials are available upon request.
