Gospel Project, Promotion Sunday, Fall Schedule – This Sunday
This Sunday morning, we are back to our fall schedule! What does that mean? Sunday School for all ages occurs at 9:30am. All classes use the Gospel Project curriculum, which teaches the beauty of how all Scripture points to Jesus. Parents, this Sunday is when your children will move up a year. Find classroom locations here. We encourage all adults to consider being a part of the class with elder Tim Murphy! At the 11:00am service only, Ridge Kids will be dismissed after singing.

Praying Together
Let’s praise God together for using our church family to come alongside our short-term mission service team going to Normandy, France this fall: God provided the full $2500 through their flamingo fundraiser which was matched to make their total doubled. Let’s continue to pray for the team as they prepare for what God has in store for them in France!

A Fountain of Marital Love
Continuing in a summer series on “Living Well,” Pastor Jack preached from Proverbs 5:15-23 and shared that there are only God-problems, that manifest themselves in marriage problems, or sexuality problems, or love problems. Listen to “A Fountain of Marital Love.
