Women's Ministry Retreat
February 28th-29th

Do you ever feel like you’re the only one facing a particular choice or situation? In her book, CHOICES, Tecia Jane (author, speaker, teacher and founder of Choosing Him Ministries) explains how we can connect our lives with the people of the Bible and pursue a personal and contagious faith. We are thrilled to have Tecia as our featured speaker at The Ridge Women’s Retreat. Please join us as she talks about how our choices, the good and the bad ones, can be used by God to have a huge impact on His kingdom.

The price to attend the retreat includes three meals, Saturday activities, and a T-shirt. 

Stay-the-night option - $85 per person. 
Sleep-at-home option - $65 per person. 

*Deadline to register is February 16th.

Special Christmas Offering

The Ridge offers hot meals to Rose Hill United Methodist Church AND foster families. Our hope is to offset the costs of these meals for 2020 by receiving a special Christmas Offering. We hope your family will make a special donation to this wonderful ministry! Please plan to leave your gift at the altar during communion on Christmas Eve. 
New Year Message Series

Small disciplines. Big results.

Change isn’t easy, but it isn’t impossible, either. Your future self is a result of the decisions you make each day. In this series, we’ll see how a few small habits can change how you see yourself today and can transform you into the person you want to be in the New Year.
Looking For A Last-Minute Christmas Gift?

We'll be selling sweatshirts at the info table starting Sunday, December 15th. Proceeds benefit the youth ski trip. $25 each. While supplies last.
Get ready for Winter Ski Retreat, February 14-17, 2019
at Winterplace Ski Resort in West Virginia! 

We will experience two full days of skiing and one optional night ski, plus a trip sledding or caving on Sunday. Winterplace is one of the East's best ski resorts featuring 8 beginner runs, 6 intermediate runs, 4 advanced runs, terrain park, and a snow tubing hill! Winterplace is a big step up in snow quality and slope options from the resorts in North Carolina or Tennessee.

We’ll also spend time meeting together for three worship and devotion sessions where we’ll grow closer to one another and focus on how we can grow in Christ as a group. Travel time will be about 9 hours each way. We will stay 12 miles away from the slopes in super cozy accommodations called The Cabins at Pine Haven (check them out!)

Marriage Retreat

The lodge is currently full. However, there are additional rooms on the property. After registering, we'll send more information regarding the new rooming locations.

This year, our theme is CLOSER - because everything in marriage either brings you a step closer or farther apart. We want to help couples choose to take a step closer. 

Our past four marriage retreats have been amazing, and we have every reason to believe that the next one is going to be the best yet!

Dates:  January 24-26, 2020
Place:  Fort Mountain Retreat Center (Chatsworth, GA)
Cost:  $340/couple ($200 non-refundable deposit due at registration. Price includes lodge + breakfast + lunch).

Hi, Parents!
As we count down to Christmas, we know there is a lot to celebrate. Let's carve out time to remind our kids that Jesus was born to be our Savior!

Car Talk :
*Do you know how many days there are until Christmas?
*What are you most excited to do this month?
*What could we do as a family to celebrate Jesus? (Make a birthday cake; read the Christmas story; attend a Christmas service.)

Memory Verse  - Learn it TOGETHER :)
"For to us a child is born to us a son is given... And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
