What a great year #OnTheRidge! God has continued to bless and add to His church. We have been able to affect our communities in many positive ways with the gospel. We have baptized more believers this past year than we have in any year since I have been pastor.
Our commitment to missions continues to increase through the many ways we reach out. Missions begins at HOME with a strong base. It then continues through our state and nation and THEN around the world. Thank you all for your generosity of time talent and treasure.
I heard so many great comments on this year’s Cantata. The Ridge Choir under the direction of Debbie Henson outdid themselves again this year. AND, of course the children’s program Sunday night was “off the chain.” Thank you Jamie Robison for your commitment and direction.
As we head into Christmas Day please don’t forget our Christmas Eve Service at 5:30 PM. It is a very simple and meaningful service of singing carols and Scripture reading. Just come as you are and bring everyone with you. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
God always takes the first step and awaits our response. 2018 will present as many challenges as we leave in 2017. In the midst of all life’s challenges may we respond to God with faithful worship attendance and committed financial giving.
We Labor Together With God, Wes
