Group Opportunities

Life Groups

Serving is a great way to get connected with other Ridgers and make a difference with the gifts and talents God has given you.  We have a wide variety of serving opportunities. You can check out our Top Serving Spots here. Every area of ministry can use additional volunteers.

We would love to help you find an area of ministry that is a perfect fit for you. Check out the MyFit Assessment to help you discover your gifts and talents. We also have volunteer advocates who will help you find a meaningful place to serve. You can check at the Connections Desk on Sunday mornings or contact us at 812-376-8455 or for more information.


You can give to our General Fund, Care Fund, or other opportunities throughout the year. The General Fund resources ministries here at The Ridge and around the world. Ten percent of every dollar given to the General Fund goes to ministries and missions outside the walls of The Ridge. The Care Fund helps meet the needs of the under-resourced in our church and community.

Connections Class

Our connectionsclass is a great way to learn more about The Ridge and opportunities to connect at The Ridge.  The class provides an overview of our vision, values, and beliefs and covers all of the connection opportunities offered by the church.  Classes are offered quarterly on Sunday mornings.

Celebrate Recovery

We all have Hurts, Hang-ups and / or Habits.
Hurts: abuse, divorce, illness, death
Hang-ups: career obsession, mistrust, impatience and intolerance
Habits: chemical, food, gambling and sex addictions, codependency and dysfunctional behaviors


Some people deny them or justify them. And, others don’t even recognize that they have them. There is hope.

God has helped countless people through Celebrate Recovery. People who thought their circumstances were unique or who thought that they were beyond help. People who decided to seek help.

“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).

We meet at The Ridge Thursday evenings from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group, stays in the group. Participation in large and small group time is highly encouraged but not mandatory. Remember, you are just where God planned for you to be and He loves you too much to leave you there. Come as you are, be welcome, be less burdened, be renewed. 

For more information contact Lisa (812-375-0028) or Ray (812-350-8653).
