This week at The Ridge
Let me encourage you to join us for a read through the Bible beginning April 1.
To read through requires reading three chapters a day plus one psalm. After the Book of Psalms is completed (Day 150, about half way through the year), we go down to just the three chapters a day. In the last month (March), it drops off to two and then just one for the last week.
We read from different places in the Bible at the same time. We begin in Genesis, Isaiah, Psalms, and Matthew. On the site, I post reading schedules to follow, and even personal check-off schedules that you can print. I will print some to distribute, as well.
The group is on Facebook, and you need to have a Facebook username to join. If you don’t have a username, it’s very easy to create. You only need a valid email.
to sign up for Facebook.
Once you create a username, or if you already have one,
to request to join the Bible Readers group. I will approve you!
I don’t know how many of you have noticed, but there are interesting articles posted on our Facebook page on a regular basis. Thank you Caleb Dunlap for making it happen!
Let me remind you about the two-hour challenge, which many of you accepted last week. Before the end of March, find a clean, two-hour slot on your schedule without interruptions to spend time alone in the quiet with the Lord, reflecting on his names.
I already have a testimony from someone who has done it! This will be a very powerful spiritual experience, I promise! Take nothing with you into your prayer time for this other and pen/pencil and paper (to write down what God tells you), and a list of the names of God. I have a list of his names
that you are welcome to use. I have also printed out this list, and you will find them on the prayer table at the rear of the sanctuary.
A friendly reminder that for all who signed up to sing in the Easter choir, the first rehearsal is tomorrow morning, Saturday, March 15, 10:00 at
Please listen to the songs that are attached to the email from Garret before the rehearsal. Even though you may be familiar with them, some of them are done in a little different format. Your preparation ahead of time will make the entire rehearsal go smoother!
This Sunday, we will continue on our study of the New Testament church, this time examining how we should be
. The texts will include Acts 2.42-26, 4.5-20, and Matthew 28.19-20.
