Refelctions on Memorial Day weekend

Absolutely amazing! Those are the best words I can find to describe Sundays like this past one. Worship was off the chart. We had new faces, new families and some new members. We celebrated the event of baptism as four people gave testimony to the power of what God is doing in their lives. I can't help but get fired up with anticipation as we watch God moving within our church family.

On another note... a very important one. I hope this weekend as you are firing up the grill and enjoying the final days of May that you will stop and give thanks for all of those who have given of their lives for this great nation. You may not like every thing that is happening in our country. I don't. You may not agree with all that comes out of Washington. Few do. But the fact that you and I have the right to disagree without endangering our lives is owed directly to the sacrifice of thousands upon thousands of men and women. Right now, as you read this, millions like them are guarding the front lines thousands of miles from the comfort of home and their families. Thank God for each of them. We pray for your safety and your protection.

Finally, just wanted you to look forward with anticipation to the weeks ahead at RCC. Next week, we are revisiting another of Jesus' great teachings in the parables. Then, it's a three week series on spiritual warfare entitled "Angels and Demons." Invite a friend to be a part of these next great weeks at Ridgeview.
