This week at The Ridge
Tomorrow—Sunday, February 3— will be Scout Sunday. We are anticipating a number of scout families to be joining us for the morning worship service. Please go out of your way to greet them and make them feel welcome.
The scouts are providing a meal for us following the service!
We will have a gift for each of the scouts that attend.
This week’s message will be aligned with our scout motif for the day. “Be strong and courageous” is the title, and the text is Joshua 1.1-9
Men’s Bible Study will meet at 5:00, an hour earlier than normal this week for the sake of those who want to see the game. Text is Genesis 19.1-29. Read ahead and bring your questions!
Youth Group will
be meeting this week.
The Board Games/ Souper Sunday has been pushed back to Sunday, March 3. The time will be from 1-5, and includes a meal.
Our Missions Convention,
For Such a Time as This
, begins this Saturday with our International Banquet at 1:00. Please bring your very best foreign/ethnic dish! We also encourage anyone with traditional clothing to wear it during Saturday and/or Sunday.
Please sign-up in the lobby for whatever food you are bringing, as well as for set-up and for take-down if you are able to help . We still need help for both, especially the set-up. Due to the weather, we have not had the opportunity to have the sign-ups available as much as we had planned. If you would like to sign up for something and have not yet, and will not be with us on Sunday, please just let me know and I’ll add you on!
There will be unique and special music, activities for the kids (and a special toy or game for each child). We will also have a piñata!
We will have missionaries present with us throughout the event, including the two families within in our congregation (Sadiqs and Rowlands).
On Sunday morning, we are going to take all of the coins in the offering, and give the money to the children of all of the missionaries that will be in attendance this weekend.
Our annual business meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 24, immediately following the morning service. We plan on a rather short meeting, so there will be no meal.
We will be sending a proposed budget out to members a few weeks before the meeting, to give you all a running head start so that you can come in with your questions.
If you have any issues you would like addressed in the meeting, please contact me directly.
