Great Relationships Are Worth Fighting For

If you missed any week in our last series, be sure to catch up online (YouTube, App, iTunes, etc).

Series Description:
God wants your relationships to be more than just fair, average, good, or even great. He wants you to fight to have amazing relationships!

Great relationships cause the world to stand up and take notice, because they are different from many of the dysfunctional relationships all around us. Although healthy relationships aren't automatic or easy, they are worth fighting for.

Through this series, you'll become equipped with the tools to build an awesome marriage, family and friendships.

What does the Bible define as “The Church”?

Truth is, the church is more than just walls, a building, pews and pulpit. The Bible teaches us that each of us make up the church. That we are to serve and love one another. That we should be a unified front for love, grace, forgiveness, and selflessness.

Join us as we discuss how we can become the church the Bible calls us to be.
Big thanks to everyone who helped "Stuff The Bus." We had so much fun supporting United Way and Reese Road Leadership Academy.

And if you missed out, there's still time! Stop by the office (5624B Whitesville Rd.) this week to pick up a book bag and supply list. Return the purchased items this Sunday (July 18th).

Parent and Student GroupMe

We have a student and a parent GroupMe account to help keep everyone up to date on what's going on in student ministry. GroupMe is a group texting app that's a great forum for staying connected and asking questions. It can be muted, so you won't get notifications constantly. If you or your student would like to be added, just text or email Nathan at 706-464-7548 and nathan@theridgecolumbus.com.

Summer Theme - Follow Jesus

This summer at RidgeRunners we have a camp theme called "Camp Upstreet". Each Sunday morning is going to be like a day at camp with games, songs and snacks while we learn to follow Jesus.

We have transitioned back to placing students on carpets by grade in the elementary area rather than by family.

We are no longer REQUIRING masks on Sunday morning. If you wish to send your child with a mask, we will support that and require them to wear it while at RidgeRunners. Extra kn-95 masks are available in the greeting area near kid's check-in.

Hi, Parents!
This Summer we're offering both in-person and online RidgeRunners experiences. 

Infants through Toddlers are returning to the classroom upstairs off the Turner Auditorium main hallway and Pre-K through Elementary will continue to meet in the gym. Both groups meet for the full 10:30 a.m. service. Check in at the hallway table just inside the Turner Auditorium doors. 

RidgeRunners will post a video on YouTube. Join us for a game, worship video with dance motions, and a great lesson! You can also watch at any time throughout the week after the livestream.

If you're looking for some more online options for children's programming check out:

*Rightnowmedia.org: This is a free video resource for our church. Check out the kids' section (VeggieTales, etc.) and watch with the family! Registration link: click here.

*Ridge resources for Sunday morning activities/lessons. Just in case you missed out this weekend: click here.

Car Talk:
*What does it mean to follow Jesus?
*Who can follow Jesus?
*What could you do to follow Jesus better?

Memory Verse (learn it together):
 “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18

Rose Hill Ministry:

The Ridge is in charge of feeding the homeless every second Tuesday of the month. All meals are served at Rose Hill Church on Hamilton Road.

Our next service date is August 10th.

Please email us if you would like more information: info@theridgecolumbus.com.

Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home:

Even though the dinners have been canceled due to COVID, we are still donating supplies.
