Youth Gathering

Youth Group should be something you can be a part of, not just another video. Come join us each week and get to know what a group of people who share faith in Christ actually looks like.

We kick things off in person at MRC at 6:30pm each Wednesday night. We meet as one group from 7th grade to high school seniors.

We meet in the back building, have it to ourselves, and are taking precautions to ensure maximum safety as well as maximum fun!

Make sure you Subscribe to our Mountain Ridge Church channel on Youtube so you don’t miss anything from our Church family!

Small Groups

Each Sunday morning we gather at 10:45a during second service and break into smaller groups to grow together as a community of believers.


We currently all meet in 2 rooms in the the back building.


The Junior high students meet in the room at the Northeast corner of the Worship Center, while the high school students meet in the room at Northwest corner of the Worship Center before separating into our various small groups.


Small groups are all about being real, authentic, and open about what following Christ actually means. 


Guys and Ladies Groups meet Weekly each week at separate times and locations.

The Bible is difficult. Reading through it with friends and leaders isn't. 

Join us as we take a look at the words behind the things Christians believe and break them down in a way that makes sense. 

The ladies currently have 2 groups that meet at Mountain Ridge in the youth room. One group meets after 2nd service each Sunday from Noon to 1pm, the other group meets Tuesday nights from 6-7pm. The guys meet at the Kessler house in Peoria from 3:30-5p. Contact us for addresses or if you have questions - thrive@mountainridge.org.

Want to take your faith one step further? We have several trained leaders eager to spend quality time with your student at whatever time works best for your family.


Email us (thrive@mountainridge.org) or message us on Facebook or Instagram @mrcThrive for any addresses, contact info, or questions.
