NEXT at the Ridge

Plans for a permanent campus in Dripping Springs

NEXT is our capital campaign to support the expansion of our campuses to provide environments for people to know, grow, and serve Jesus, both for those who currently attend the Ridge and for those who have yet to come to our church.


We have already completed the strategic design phase of this project and are moving into design development to build a permanent campus with a 1,000-seat worship center for our Dripping Springs community.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have services every Sunday at 9am and 11am. We currently meet at Dripping Springs Middle School on Sundays, located at 111 Tiger Lane. Download a printable map of the middle school with a directory of our Sunday programming.

Please Note: Occasionally we host special outdoor services at our future campus property, located at 3100 US 290 (immediately west of Malone Diesel).

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes early, so you'll have time to find a parking space, drop off your children and/or students, grab a cup of coffee, and find a seat. From the moment you arrive, we have volunteers to help direct you!

Each Sunday we gather for meaningful worship and biblical teaching that can be applied to everyday life. In every service, we have live worship followed by a relevant, straightforward message that will help you know Jesus, grow in Him, and serve Him daily. Watch some of our previous services here.

We have classes for children from birth through 5th grade during our 9am and 11am services. Ridge Kids is a place where kids learn about God's love for them in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment. An amazing team of volunteer leaders teach, challenge, and encourage children each week, using age-appropriate lessons from the Bible, activities, and games!

If you are a first time visitor, you can pre-register your children for Ridge Kids here.

We want to be a great place where your student can be with friends and learn about Jesus. Ridge Students offers large group gatherings, small groups, events, and opportunities to serve — all to pursue God and love people!

Please Note: Middle School meets at 9am on Sunday mornings, and High School meets at 11am.

We have several opportunities to get connected at the Ridge! Our Young Adults ministry meets weekly on Tuesdays at our Southwest Campus. Our Men’s and Women’s ministries offer Bible studies, classes, and events throughout the year. We also offer Events, Classes, and Life Groups, which are great ways to grow in your relationship with Jesus and build community.

We offer accessible parking, entrances, and seating.

Embrace, our special needs ministry, connects individuals of all abilities to our Sunday morning experience. We offer inclusion services and classes for children and teens with special needs, creating an opportunity for the entire family to worship and study God’s Word. If you are planning your first visit, let our Embrace team know you are coming by filling out this form.

Please Note: Our Inclusion Middle School Service meets at 9am on Sunday mornings, and our Inclusion Ridge Kids (Birth-5th Grade) Classes and Inclusion High School service meet at 11am.

We welcome all certified service animals, such as guide dogs for the blind.

Please Note: Emotional support animals or pets are not allowed, and service animals must be leashed and under the control of their handler at all times.
