Memory Verse
…that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you,… (1 Thessalonians 4:11).

Life Lessons
The spirit-filled Christian life should not be characterized by drama and disorder, but by the unfettered peace of God,
steadfast self-control, and faithfulness to commitments (Gal. 5:22, 23). Though the storms of adversity rage in outward
circumstances, the believer con3nues to experience the quiet inward confidence which can only come from the Lord… (Life Principles Bible).

It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!
 
Memory Verse
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the
knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God… (Colossians 1:9-10)

Life Lessons
It is God’s desire that we would walk in His will and obey Him. And knowing His plan for our lives is a treasure because it
prevents us from wasting our time and talents on things that will not matter in eternity. So when we pray for others, it is
appropriate that we ask for His purpose to be fulfilled in them and that they would see every situa3on from His viewpoint— because this is life at its very best, and there’s absolutely nothing that compares with it. (Life Principles Bible)

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!

Memory Verse
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth , peace, good will toward
men (Luke 2:14).

From Our Daily Bread
Christmas Eve 1914, in Belgium the sound of singing “Silent Night” floated through the air and soldiers on both sides stopped shooting and sang together for a time….The Christmas truce that occurred along World War I’s Western front offered a brief glimpse of the peace the angel’s proclaimed on the first Christmas long ago. An angel spoke to terrified shepherds with these reassuring words:” Do not be afraid. I bring you god news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you”. Then a multitude of angels appeared, “praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests'”. Jesus is the “Prince of Peace” who saves us from our sins (Isaiah 9:6). Through His sacrifice on the cross He offers forgiveness and peace with God to all who trust in Him.

Annual Christmas Offering
Throughout the month of December, we are asking all of you to give a special offering (above your regular giving) to help us end the year in good shape financially. This is very important to the continuation of
God’s work. And as we give, we will remember the words of Scripture: “God loves a cheerful giver.” When we all take part joyfully, God will use us to share the Word faithfully both here and around the world.

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!

Memory Verse
The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” (Luke 2:10)

Life Lessons
God cares about everyone, despite his or her occupation or standing in society. By Jewish tradi3on, shepherds were known to be spiritually unclean. Yet the Lord chose these men to proclaim the birth announcement of His Son— the Savior of the world. The angel told them not to fear, but to open their eyes and watch for the wonderfully good thing that the Lord was doing for them and for the whole world— something that would bring great joy to everyone.

Memory Verse
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem. (Matthew 2:1).

Life Lessons
The wise men eagerly journeyed to Bethlehem to give a royal welcome to the baby Jesus–God’s promised gi@ of salvation to mankind. They packed gold, frankincense, and myrrh so they could join in the heavenly worship of the infant King. These men formed an important part of the celebration that surrounded Christ’s birth. In fact, they represented  you in God’s great plan. They came to worship the Lord of lords and King of kings, and their visit to the Christ child symbolizes the thousands of men and women who have humbly sought the Messiah throughout history. Through your own seeking and serving, you become part of the heavenly symphony that gives passionate praise to the Savior. Seek and
sing, for surely He is worthy.

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!

Memory Verse
One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty works. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works….The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season (Psalm 145: 4-5; 15).

Life Lessons
How can we meditate on God’s majestic splendor? We can recall the personal victories He has given us. We can ponder His attributes. We can see His glory through nature and other believers. And most of all we can focus on His Son. The Lord is the great Provider. As Paul said, “He gives to all life, breath, and all things” (Acts 17:25). We do not look to God presumptuously for what we need, but expectantly, because we put our hope in His great love.

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!

Memory Verse
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt (Daniel 12:2). NKJV

Life Lessons
Any hardships that God asks us to endure for His sake will one day seem like nothing in comparison to His reward (Rom.8:18). However, if we fail to believe in Christ or chooses anything in His place, a terrible judgment awaits (Rev. 20:11-15). As Jesus said in Mark 8:35, “Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.”

Shoebox Sunday
We will bring all our filled boxes to the sanctuary next Sunday, November 15th and then they will be taken to the drop off
point. If you have any items to donate you must bring them to the church by Tuesday the 10th of November. See Becky Steller for more information.

Memory Verse
He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all (Daniel 11:37).

Life Lessons
Most conservative scholars believe this verse describes the Antichrist, “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is
called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” ( 2 Thess. 2:4) (Life Principles Bible)

Shoebox Sunday
