Busy weekend! Our staff and volunteers hit a homerun yesterday as we hosted the free screening of Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian . 300 people showed up at Movies 278 in Hiram for the film. Most of those were unfamilar faces. We handed out cards with things to discuss with your family about the movie and an invitation to The Ridge for our “Finding The Truth In Narnia” series. The cool thing was, the theater management agreed to pass out these cards with every ticket purchased from now on for the movie! The potential to touch hundreds more families is huge!
Today, we kicked off our “Finding The Truth In Narnia” series. We looked at the overall theme behind C.S. Lewis’ writing of this particular book: a culture that has lost its faith and the restoration of that faith.
Major props to John, Ross, Chris and Michelle for their creativity. The door to the cafetorium was transformed into a large wardrobe. Handmade, real wood…it was very cool! After walking through the wardrobe we found ourselves surrounded by trees and even a large working lamp post…it was amazing! Don’t tell me you can’t make creative environments while you’re portable. Its just a matter of being creative and willing to do a little work. Great job!
John, Jason and the band sounded great! Our “new look” band is starting to mesh pretty well. Sounding better every week. Stan, Chris, Michelle and the rest of the tech team did a fantastic job today as well. All went smooth.
Attendance was good and we had 8 first-time families there today. However, we can already see signs of the summer attendance drop off beginning. Hopefully, the summer will also continue to bring a bunch of new families to The Ridge.
Tomorrow, our staff and their families are going on a much deserved day-getaway. We’re heading up to Chattanooga to Rock City. Lookin forward to a great day of hanging out with our team and families.
