Today’s Sermon

“I want to believe, but…Christianity is Boring” -Pastor Mike

 


Announcements

Welcome Tanya Nace from World Hope! – We want to welcome Tanya Nace who is the Executive Director of World Hope International. World Hope International is a Christian organization working with vulnerable and exploited communities to alleviate poverty, suffering, and injustice. The Youth Group at The Ridge sponsors a Girl named Luba through World Hope’s work in Ukraine!

I want to believe, but… – It can be difficult to believe in a God we cannot see. We wonder why God didn’t answer our prayers, why God allows suffering, or why we can’t feel His presence. God may not meet all your expectations—but that’s good news! Today we’ll be talking about whether or not Christianity is boring. Our messages are posted on the church website and can be found on Spotify. Everyone has questions, and church should be the safest place to ask them!

Christmas Events on The Ridge! – The time has come where we celebrate the birth of Jesus who is the Saviour of the world! There are a lot of different events happening in December in which you and your family can take part – everything from carolling, to variety shows, to parties! Check out the insert or go to christmasontheridge.ca to get more information about what’s going on at our church!

Advent Begins Next Sunday –For the following four weeks, we will be taking time during our service to reflect on the coming of Jesus and the real reason we celebrate Christmas.
