This week at The Ridge
Happy and Blessed New Year! We are looking forward to a
Year of Engagement
We will continue our study in spiritual gifts and now the broader view of finding our spiritual SHAPE (Spiritual gift-Heart-Abilities-Personality-Experience) and engaging each and every one of us in meaningful and fulfilling ministry.
Our text will be 1 Corinthians 12.4-10.
Youth Group and Men’s Bible Study will both be back in action on Sunday evening at 6:00, kids meeting at Rowlands and men at the church.
Mike Krempel is putting together another board game gathering for Sunday afternoon, tentatively scheduled for 2-5 pm.
On February 3, we will celebrate Scout Sunday. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to mix with this most incredible group. We need to not only welcome them, but to pray that God would begin to speak and call some of these precious families into our church family.
We prayed hard for the incoming people for the Children’s Christmas Program, and had a terrific response. Let’s do the same here.
Our first Missions Convention is planned for Saturday and Sunday, February 9-10. On Saturday, we will have an International Banquet; for this, we ask everyone to bring your very best foreign/ethnic dish, whether that is as exotic as lamb curry or as common as pizza (“Italian”) or even hamburgers (“American”). We would also encourage anyone with traditional clothing to wear it during Saturday and/or Sunday.
There will be unique and special music, activities for the kids (and a special toy or game for each child). We will soon have sign-ups for food, for set-up and for take-down.
We will have missionaries throughout the event, including the two families within in our congregation (Sadiqs and Rowlands).
I have box that was given to me with about 100 gospel tracts in it. If anyone is interested in them, I would be glad to pass them along to you.
Here are the songs for Sunday:
Only a God Like You
Again I Say Rejoice
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Build my Life
Have a blessed weekend! Weather looks to be unseasonably friendly for church tomorrow!
