Church Membership Update

In just the nick of time, the weather is starting to follow the calendar. Whether this continues or not is anyone’s guess. After all, this IS Southern Illinois!

I would like to update you on a task taken on by the Church Council

Membership Update: One of the goals of the Church Council this year is to update the membership list. Currently WSBC/The Ridge has more than 720 members including 350 resident members. Obviously, this is not an accurate picture. .

Since January, the council has been updating the membership list (NO small undertaking). They will present their results in June. Two lists will be presented: 1) Members of Walnut Street Baptist Church and 2) Members of the Ridge Church.

Members of The Ridge Church are those members who attend the Ridge Church, support The Ridge church, and/or connected to The Ridge Church.

The WSBC members will be those who have not connected with The Ridge Church.

The plan is to present the two lists to the congregation in the middle of June for review. Questions will be referred to the Church office. Then a scheduled date will be set for church approval sometime later in June. .

Finally, we will have a current list of The Ridge Church members.

We Labor Together With God, Wes
