This week at The Ridge
DON’T FORGE THE TIME CHANGE THIS WEEK! SPRING AHEAD!
I missed my deadline last week, and am sorry I didn’t get this out to you. But part of the reason is that my life was unexpectedly flooded with opportunities to go and pray with people outside of the church with spiritual needs.
There are five families/couples/individuals that we are currently working with. Pray with me that we can continue to minister to them and that God would draw them to himself and to
One of them prayed with me for salvation for the first time!
The Lord spoke to me very clearly about changing my entire message on Friday morning. We will be looking at King Jehoshaphat in an amazing story of God’s deliverance in 2 Chronicles 20.1-30. We won’t read all of thesee verses in the service, but you may want to read them ahead of time to get primed for what God wants us to hear.
I have a new candidate for baptism, so we will schedule a service to include this, hopefully toward the end of March. If you are interested in being baptized yourself, please let me know!
Thanks to Connie and her team for bringing spring early to the sanctuary with the new decorations!
Men’s Bible Study and the Youth Group will both meet at 6:00 Sunday evening at
The Board Games/ Souper Sunday was a tremendous success! Thanks to all who brought food and for Marco the Magnificent, whose best trick of the day was actually making the event happen!
Please remember to give toward your faith promise. We made monthly pledges, and you can pay it in any increments you would like (weekly, monthly,
.). Eileen and I have always paid monthly toward ours.
Please use the envelopes to designate which part of your giving is tithe, which is missions, and any other specific giving that you would like to specify. There are envelopes in the lobby on the main table (on the left).
We’re going to host another Seder this year, this time on April 18, the Thursday before Resurrection Day. If you are interested in being on the Seder Team to help put it all together, please let me know! We need to put this team together pronto, so please call, text or email me ASAP.
Thanks to Ron and Esther Guiffe for taking on the marquee ministry! And a big thank you to Adam Dunlap for doing it previously in between the million other things he was doing.
Joe Bodle had a praise and a prayer request. He was thankful to the Lord and wanted all of us to know that he has been granted full custody of his son Josh!
But he also wants us to pray for his aunt, whose health is failing quickly. His mother, her sister, is having a very hard time dealing with this.
On Wednesday evening at 7:00, I’m going to begin a four-week coaching session for anyone and everyone who would like to be part of a discipleship one-on-one. We will have this in place of the Wednesday evening prayer meetings.
Many of you have asked about our giving for the missionary kids. Well, we were able to give the eight of them $55 apiece!
