Sunday Recap 8-9-09

What a day @ The Ridge yesterday! We kicked off a new series called “DRIVE: the ultimate road trip“. This series is all about Lordship and what that means and what that looks like in our lives. Sunday we looked at “Who’s Behind The Wheel?”

  • The band did a super job setting up the message today. LOTS of positive comments by folks today.
  • Yes, I did my best…or worst…Carrie Underwood and sang “Jesus Take The Wheel” If you missed it, your loss. 🙂
  • MANY people stood boldly yesterday saying that they were saying “Yes, Lord” about something in their life.
  • Good to see some people back Sunday. Another week and most folks should be back in the swing.
  • Lots of new faces as well. Always good to see.
  • God’s provision was great yesterday as people gave faithfully and God met some big financial needs. Thank you Ridgers for giving faithfully and obediently. Thank you God for being Jehovah-Jireh.
  • Said goodbye to a great family yesterday. The McKees are a family that has been impacted and has made an impact. They have a great story of life-change. God has used them in many ways as they have served Him faithfully. There are many people whose lives have been impacted because of what God has done through the McKees.  They are moving to Wisconsin. We will miss them a lot. No really, a LOT! 😦
  • Announced today that Bill Edger, who has served as our Administration/Assimilation Pastor for the past 16 months, has resigned to take a position with Regions Bank. He will be the branch manager of the Dallas branch of Regions. We are thankful for Bill’s service and he and his family will still be here @ The Ridge.  We love Bill and his family! After much prayer God gave him a great opportunity and, since we are also needing to take a look at restructuring parts of our staff in order to be a the best stewards of our resources, all of this worked out to be God’s plans and timing.  Bill helped do a LOT of things and establish some systems and procedures and policies that we really needed, for which we are extremely grateful.  So, thanks to Bill for his faithful service @ The Ridge. We love you all and look forward to your continued service here.
  • LAST NIGHT was our Summit @ The Ridge church family gathering. We had a time of picnic, fun & games, a little time of praise through song and some time to share vision from our staff.
  • We had a good time last night hanging and connecting with one another. It has been said that the health of a church body can be seen in how long people hang around after a gathering. Well, for those who were there tonight, it looked pretty healthy! People hung around until well after dark. It was great to see people getting connected better with one another.
  • God has some BIG things in store for us @ The Ridge and for our community, I am sure of it! I can see that we are right on the edge of Him doing something significant in our midst. Keep praying and hang on to your fork, Ridgers! God has something sweet in store!
