Ridge Pointe Happenings

We hope that you will experience the warmth and love that we want to share with you. Our motto here at Ridge Pointe is: “We accept you just as Christ accepted us.”
 
Memory Verse
And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things (Mark 6:34).
 
Words of Wisdom
Jesus was not irritated by the crowds of people who sought His help. He was moved with compassion because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. They were not cared for, nor provided for spiritually by the Jewish leaders. Many passages speak of God caring for Israel as a shepherd His flock (e.g., Num 22:17; 1 Kgs 22:17) and state that the Son of David will be that Shepherd (cf. Ezek 34:23; 37:24). Later in this passage, Jesus miraculously feeds the multitude from just five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus used the special abilities God gave to Him just as we should all use our spiritual gifts with compassion for others.

Donate Unwanted Jewelry
We are going collecting jewelry to help the Ropp’s in their birthing center ministry in the Philippines. If you have jewelry you are no longer wearing, whether it’s broken or not, and you would be willing to donate it, please bring it to the church and put it in the treasure chest on Terrie’s desk. We’d like to surprise the Ropp’s with this when they come to our church on October 13th. See Kelly or Sharlette if you have any questions.
