Weekend Recap 8-14-11

This past weekend, we had an opportunity to reach out to our community as we prayer walked neighborhoods and put door hanger bags on homes. Each bag had info about the church, coupons to Chick-fil-A and Moe’s as well as a copy of the Gospel of John.  We had about 2000 to hand out, but were only able to cover about 1000-1200. However, we already had results as at least one family came Sunday because of the outreach! Thanks and major props to the four families, besides our staff, that gave up a couple of hours of their Saturday morning to reach out and impact the community. The Crider, Davis, Galloway, & Pruet families made a big impact and covered a lot of territory. Thanks for your Kingdom-mindedness! Sunday, most of the remaining door hangers were taken by other Ridgers to put out in their neighborhoods. We will pray for God to use this effort for His Kingdom!

Sunday was a good day as we continued in our series ReDiscover Church focusing on “Rediscovering Worship.” We dug into Isaiah 58:1-11 and saw what true worship really looks like, as well as what might cause God to ignore our worship. We followed that teaching time with a time of prayer and examining of our hearts before sharing the Lord’s Supper together. There was time at the end to worship through music in response to God’s speaking into our hearts. It was a good day @ The Ridge! God was glorified…the Word was taught…we worshipped in a genuine and sincere way…we reflected on what Christ did for us and looked forward to His return through communion…everyone walked away with a fresh perspective on worship.

Following our worship gathering, we met as a church family around “The Table”.  This is a great time of fellowship and community as well as a time to share some family discussions and vision for what God is doing and where we see Him working. Great time around The Table! Thanks to James & Bethany Story (and their kids!) for catering the lunch. It was fantastic! Go by Tropical Joe’s Smoothies in Dallas and give them some of your business. They are great people and an important part of The Ridge!

Part of our duscussion at The Table was regarding our proposed by-laws. You can read them HERE. We will be officially adopting these in the next month. If you have questions regarding them, feel free to email me.
