I love my church. That's not news for most of you. But there are a lot of reasons for that. Thursday was just another example of why. Our staff and a few other members of our church took the afternoon to serve lunch to the faculty of Freedom Intermediate School on their last day of class. As usual, the people were blown away by your loving hearts and servant's attitude.
This isn't the first time I've watched our church family in action--serving meals, taking care of needs and loving on others. It's a perfect example of us trying to be a church without walls, a church with influence. Now, not one of those people may ever enter the doors of our church or become a member of our family. But they have been loved on and served by Christ followers who get what that phrase means.
One quick reminder for the readers who are Ridgies. Tomorrow is our corporate fast. This is for members who truly feel led by God to participate and it's only for those who are medically in a position to do so. I am inviting you to join others who will be participating in seeking out God's direction for each of us individually and as a church family. If you've got questions, let me know. We'll "break the fast" together as a family at our annual Memorial Day picnic where we already have over 200 signed up to join us. It's gonna be a great Sunday!! We'll see you there.
