We’re committed to partnering with parents to lead students into Christ-centered living. We want every student to take their next step with Jesus by growing their faith, finding community and serving others. Here are four things we value in student ministry:
Every single student is valued and known by God. We believe it’s our responsibility as believers to make sure any student who comes to Blue Oaks feels valued and known by staff, volunteers and by other students.
Engaging Bible Teaching
We believe God’s story redeems and empowers our story. Each week we start a conversation through teaching that is rooted in the most relevant, practical tool for our lives, the Bible. Our hope is that every message helps students connect with God in their everyday lives and to find their personal identity in Jesus.
We believe that students will connect with God when they are surrounded by amazing leaders and friends that are passionate about Jesus. All students will connect with a small group leader who will be consistent in providing prayer, love and support. At Blue Oaks, community is built through large group shared experiences, small group interactions and adult leader mentorships.
In student ministry, you can do everything right that makes the tastings of a great cake but cake is always better with frosting. We believe fun is the frosting to a cake and having fun is a tool to help us connect with each other and ultimately with God.
Sunday Service, 10:00 am
Foothill High School – Room C6
Every Sunday, 6th-8th grade students have their own service during the 10:00 am Sunday experience. During this time, students play group games, participate in worship, and engage with a message that is practical for their lives. Sundays provide a great opportunity for students to make friends, connect with small group leaders and learn about God’s love for them.
Wednesday, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Ridgeview Hope Church
5901 Coronado Lane
Pleasanton, CA 94588
Every Wednesday, 6th-8th grade students join together to have small groups. During this time, we play group games, dig deeper into Sunday’s message and spend time in small groups. Wednesdays provide the opportunity for your student to create more meaningful friendships, participate in small group discussions and to dig deeper into how God can transform their lives.
We want to mobilize your high schoolers potential to help them keep pursuing authentic faith and discover their personal mission. To do that we encourage high school students to attend any of the main worship services on Sunday mornings and get involved in serving on a volunteer team where they can put their faith into action and be mentored by others who are further along in their spiritual journey.
Sundays 7:00 – 8:30 pm

We also know that high school students need to build a community of peers. That’s why every Sunday evening, 9th-12th grade students join together to have small groups. During this time they laugh and have fun, dig deeper into the Bible using a variety of study tools and spend time in small groups where students can be supported and challenged to mobilize their potential.
