The Sunday service video will be livestreamed on Wednesday evening at 7pm here and on our Facebook page.
During this time, we are encouraging e-transfer for tithes and offerings. To send an e-transfer, set the recipient as The Ridge Church and send it to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Set password as “offering”. If you want your offering designated, write that in the messages section, otherwise it will go to the General Fund. Auto-deposit is turned on.
You can also use the debit machine in the lobby, or place your offering in the boxes located in the lobby and sanctuary.
Outdoor Service & Wheeler Run
We are excited to hold another outdoor service on September 13th at 10:30am! Just like last time, please plan to arrive early so we can park and arrange vehicles in the best way. If you like to bring your lawn chairs and sit with your bubbles, that’s fine too!
Following the service, we’ll be doing our second annual “Wheeler Run Sunday”. Bring your wheeler, side by side, or dirt bike to church and we’ll go for a nice run after church is finished. More details will be released soon, but we wanted to get it on your calendar!
The raindate for both events is September 20th.
Two Services Starting September 20… with Baptisms!!
With fall arriving, we expect our weekly attendence to increase, and with COVID-19, we have been running near full capacity all summer. To honour public health guidelines and share the message of Jesus with as many people as possible, we need to move to two services.
Starting September 20th (September 27th if rain moved the outdoor services), we will be holding two identical Sunday morning services at 9:30am and 11am. Registration will be required for each service and the button will be on the homepage of our website.
We will also be rebroadcasting the service at 7pm each Wednesday evening for those who are not yet comfortable with attending church in person.
We already have one person who is ready to take the step of baptism! If you are interested in learning more, contact a pastor.
Dear The Ridge Church,
I hope this message finds you well! I want to thank you for your continued partnership as you have invested in helping raise up Wesleyan pastors and leaders who can help shepherd the Church, especially through such unprecedented times as these.
In 2019, our goal was to sponsor 282 pastors. We can celebrate that this goal was not only met, but exceeded! We have seen funds come through for up to 368 total pastors! These funds will continue to be available for new pastors as the number of leaders that need training continues to grow!
One of the many stories we are celebrating is that, just before the start of 2020, we saw our very first graduation from the College on Wheels Program in Mozambique. After four years of hard work, 32 individuals graduated from this Bible Training program!
Lastly, I want to share with you a video that was recorded during a recent GP Partner Call. During this time, we discussed our Five-Phase global strategy, highlighting Phase Three, Developing Leaders. During the call, we were able to discuss the Oral Curriculum being created in Cambodia to train pastors. I encourage you to check out this video to hear from Missionary Tim Gallant, along with two of our Cambodian local leaders.
I’m excited to send more updates in the future as we see more and more pastors trained.

Kids and Parents
Ridge Kids is back! If your child is going into grade 1 to going into grade 5, we will have a full morning of fun for them each Sunday starting on August 9th. The kids will be dismissed part way through the service to go downstairs.
