For the first time, with the exception of Easter, God brought over 400 people to The Ridge today! 415 to be exact. Wow! We had 8 first time guest families with us today and one person who prayed to put their faith in Christ after our worship gatherings were over! We also had three families who dedicated themselves and their children to the Lord. One of these was on their second dedication since we started CATR! It was a great day!
Kudos to Doug who spoke today. Great job! I so appreciate the break from teaching once in a while. (I actually got to sit next to my lovely wife during the first gathering today! 🙂 ) I’m definitely ready to be back in the saddle next week. Kudos too to Mike Edde who filled in for Doug leading worship along with Kendal and the rest of the band. The music was fantastic today as well. God is definitely moving and it is humbling and exciting to be a part of it. One family who has only been a couple of times, eagerly took door hanger invites to canvas their neighborhood and invite people to the remainder of our Christmas series. People are “getting it” and are sharing their new perspective with others and God is using it to draw people to Himself. I can’t wait to see what He does in the next couple of weeks as we lead up to Christmas!
