The Sunday service video will be livestreamed on Wednesday evening at 7pm here and on our Facebook page.
Don’t Forget to Register!
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.
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.
Nursery Room Now Open
If you have a child who is too young for Ridge Kids, we have created a room downstairs where families can watch the service live and have a space where children can play. We’re hoping this room will create fellowship among parents! Head downstairs and take your first right to access the room. There is also self-serve coffee! The room and all toys are sanitized before each service.
Mission’s Moment – Caton’s Island
Each month, Justin will be giving us a missions update in the service. This month, we’ll be focusing on our District Camp, Caton’s Island!
The summer of 2020 will go down in the history books for Caton’s Island. The decision to run camp during a global pandemic was an extremely hard one to make but it was worth it! We began the summer short-staffed requiring many former senior staff volunteers during the summer to come help out and fill in the gaps.
Praise God for the exceptional leadership of Director Dean Stephenson and his senior staff. Each staff member went above and beyond their normally required duties in order for us to run camp and we cannot thank them enough! Although COVID-19 forced us to downsize, we were thrilled to have 564 camper registrations plus a combined 28 families for our family camps.
The greatest joy we have at Caton’s is being able to live out and share the Gospel of Jesus with each camper that steps foot on the island. We would like to thank all the camp speakers who came and shared hope and life with the campers. Adam DeMerchant, Reuben & Leah Myles, Tim Guptill, Phillip Davis, Kevin Myers, Ryan Genereaux, Austin White, Greg Walton, and Tami Mutch-Ketch. Each and every counsellor who shared their faith, led devotions and became the hands and feet of Jesus; they made an eternal impact. We saw 84 campers give their lives to Jesus for the first time and 97 campers re-commit their lives! Praise God!
In person: 83
