Community Ministries

Ridge Baptist Church has been part of the Ridge community since 1853. The Ridge School (Now Ridge Elementary School) first met in the Ridge Church facilities.

Community is important to us and Ridge Community Connections is an effort to reach out to our community and share the love of Jesus Christ.

During the year there are several ways in which Ridge Church reaches out to the community. At the beginning of each academic year, volunteers from the church provide breakfast for the faculty and staff of the three schools located near Ridge (Ridge Elementary School, Tuckahoe Middle School and Douglas Freeman High School). We also partner with Ridge Elementary School during the year by helping with school events and providing a portion of the breakfast treats for teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Ridge Day is a community event held each October. During this community celebration there are plenty of games, food and fun for everyone. There is entertainment throughout the day provided by ensembles from local schools, the Ridge Praise Team and other community groups. Community businesses are invited to provide information and sell merchandise.
