I received a text the other day identifying a few folks who had gone out of their way to meet a church need. The text-er appreciated their willingness to help in an unanticipated situation on a moment’s notice. Most certainly a Hats off is due.
I am reminded of so many at The Ridge Church that go above and beyond what is expected of them as church members. We see many of their contributions on a daily and weekly basis. The Ridge Church could not exist and we could not begin to fulfil our mission from God without their committed service.
In addition, there are many who pull up their sleeves, pitch in, and just do what needs to be done, at the expense of not only their personal time but also contributing their own personal finances, (and NO they don’t deduct it from their weekly tithe). AND, they do it under the radar, quietly, and many times anonymously. While I could mention many tasks and I hesitate to mention any, I will call out those who bring food every Sunday morning for our “Coffee And …”
Let me be quick to add that I recognize there are some who are willing but simply unable to make the kind of personal and physical contributions they used to make. However, their heart moves them to do what they can, and to hold up the ministry, leadership, and mission of The Ridge Church in their prayers.
I confess that I do not show my appreciation often enough. I apologize for that. Nevertheless, allow to me to give all of you a big HATS OFF! Thank you!
