Love God. Love People. Make a Difference. That is truly what we hope to demonstrate through every Ridge endeavor. SERVE365 is no different. Our hope is to be able to impact the community and spread the love of Jesus by volunteering to meet the needs in our community.
On the morning of September 15, more than 500 members of The Ridge gathered underneath the Steve Roath Pavilion for not only a time of worship, fellowship and food but also to sign-up to volunteer with one of our 11 partner organizations. These organizations help with various needs within our community, such as feeding the hungry, teaching literacy programs, providing housing, and helping individuals and families successfully through crises. Some of these partners include the CLC (Christian Learning Center), Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Club of North Georgia, and more.
In partnering with these organizations, we are able to make a difference 365 days of the year.
More than 450 individuals signed up to serve in immediate projects or to work with our partner organizations sometime in the near future! That number is more than we could have ever anticipated! We know that it is only through the goodness of God that we will be able to use our talents in a way that will have a lasting impact in our community.
Through diligent planning, preparation, set up and break down we were able to make this day a success. None of this would have been possible without the help of more than 100 volunteers and our Ridge Staff who so graciously gave their time and energy to help make this day happen.
We hope that you, along with the rest of The Ridge family, will join with us to SERVE365!
