She got up and took a few steps twice today. She is having some tingling in both legs and some sharp shooting pain in one leg at times, the doctors say that it will go away in time.

Bulletin Sept. 20, 2020

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
At the beginning of your supplications the [a]command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision…
(Daniel 9:23)

Words Of Wisdom
When we look again at the life of Daniel, we see an incident that is astounding. After a lengthy time of intense prayer, he was very tired. Guess who showed up? The angel Gabriel! Daniel said he came in “my extreme weariness” (Dan. 9:21). Gabriel addressed Daniel as one who was “highly esteemed”. (Dan. 9:23).
Imagine being exhausted and an angel showing up by your easy chair to announce that you are highly esteemed and of great value, but He gave His life to make you a godly man.

Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear  yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not  able to perform it by yourself (Exodus 18:18). 

Words Of Wisdom 

Moses was wearing himself out serving alone as judge over the  Israelites. Jethro cautioned his son-in-law Moses: “You will only  wear [yourself] out. The work is too heavy . . . you cannot handle  it alone” (Ex. 18:18). He then explained ways that Moses could  delegate his work and share his heavy load with others.  Though it may seem paradoxical for the Christian, self-care is  essential for a healthy life (Matt. 22:37-39; Eph. 5:29-30). Yes, we  must love God first and love others as well, but we also need to  get adequate rest to renew our body and spirit. Sometimes self care means stepping away and graciously allowing others to help  us with our burdens.  

Jesus often slipped away to rest and pray (Mark 6:30-32). When  we follow His example, we will be more effective in our  relationships and better able to give care to others.

Bulletin Sept 6, 2020

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
This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God,and Jesus Christ whom You have sent (John 17:3).

Words Of Wisdom
Jesus wanted His disciples to have an intimate knowledge of God. He prayed, “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent” (John 17:3). This knowledge is intensely personal, and is gained only through a deep, prolonged friendship. Indeed, the knowledge
referred to in this text and elsewhere in Scripture is compared with the intimacy of husband and wife as they become one (Genesis 4:1). We can have that knowledge as we spend time talking with God, reading His Word, and sharing His love with the world.

Ladies Bible Study
Attention all ladies. We will meet this Wednesday at 10:30 AM in the JOY classroom. This study is geared toward our senior saints. There is no childcare available. See Marilyn Kottemann for more details.

Memory Verse
I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered.
Ezekiel 34:12

Words Of Wisdom
In the open sea, a rescuer positioned her kayak to assist panicked swimmers competing in a triathlon. “Don’t grab the middle of the boat!” she called to swimmers, knowing such a move would capsize her craft. Instead, she directed weary swimmers to the bow, or front, of the kayak. There they could grab a loop, allowing the safety kayaker to help rescue them.Whenever life or people threaten to pull us under, as believers in Jesus, we know we have a Rescuer. “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep . . . . I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered” (Ezekiel 34:11–12). This was the prophet Ezekiel’s assurance to God’s people when they were in exile. Their leaders had neglected and exploited them, plundering their lives and caring “for themselves rather than for [God’s] flock” (v. 8). As a result, the people “were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked
for them” (v. 6). But “I will rescue my flock,” declared the Lord (v. 10), and His promise still holds. What do we need to do? Hold fast to almighty God and His promises. “I myself will search for my sheep and look after them,” He says (v. 11). That’s a saving promise worth holding tightly.
