The Ridge has experienced a number of changes during our short, ten year history. From our first day meeting in an aging theatre, to relocating to a larger space in a local strip-mall, to our first day here on Millholland Road, God has blessed and equipped us every step of the way … all so we could act on our love for the Lord by loving others and making a difference in our community and beyond.
We call our latest initiative “New Beginnings”
Here at the Ridge, we want to do everything we can for families in our community. We are investing in an all-season gathering place, complete with a spacious fireplace (The Pavilion) so that families in our community can gather together in fellowship and worship in an inviting and informal space. We are building a playing field, playground and ball court as a means to draw in the next generation of believers. Finally, we are leasing two large modular buildings to give us additional large and small group space for our community to come together to study God’s word, worship and celebrate the gift of Jesus Christ.
The Heart of New Beginnings
These are indeed exciting times here at The Ridge. Conventional wisdom tells us that churches are on the decline but our faith in Jesus Christ and our own experience says differently. As we reach out to the unchurched and unsaved in our community we take our inspiration from 1st Corinthians 9:22 where Paul says, “To the weak I have become as the weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men that I might by all means save some.” The heart of “New Beginnings” is doing whatever it takes, short of sin, to reach the unreached. While our ministry will never be about buildings or facilities, we do believe these tools can help spread God’s word.
Give to New Beginnings
We are in awe of God’s faithfulness and we believe this will open a new and exciting chapter for The Ridge. Our goal is to have this phase of New Beginnings complete by April 1st.If you would like to donate to New Beginnings, you can do so here, and choose “New Beginnings” from the dropdown menu on the giving page.
