Caton’s Island Update
This week, we recieved a letter from Caton’s Island, the Atlantic District Youth camp. Read it below:
Dear The Ridge Church,
It is with hearts full of gratitude that we write to you to say thank you for your donations to Caton’s Island. Your investment in the lives of children, teens, and staff contributed to Kingdom Impact in the 2020 camp season as well as for many years to come.
Churches like yourself, who prayerfully and tangiby give to ministries such as this, are key to on-the-ground work on the island. We are thankful for this service which you have done unto us (Matthew 25:40) knowing the Lord will bless you for your faithfulness to Him.
We are praying for you!
In Service to Him,
Tami Mutch-Ketch (Executive Director, Atlantic District of the Wesleyan Church)
Dean Stephenson (Director, Caton’s Island)
In-Person Attendance: n/a
Online Concurrent Viewers: 72
Kids and Parents
Ridge Kids is back! If your child is going into Junior Kindergarten to going into Grade 5. The kids will be dismissed part way through the service to go downstairs.
Pre-Teen & Youth
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.
A Message About Masks
GNB has announced that masks are now manditory for all public spaces, including churches. This means that, for the entire time you are inside the church, you must wear a mask (unless you have a medical condition that prohibits you from doing so).
Also following GNB guidelines, people who are using a mic will not be required to use a mask while they’re speaking or singing, but will put it back on once they’re off the stage. From GNB: “Masks are required inside all places of worship and faith gatherings. An exception is made for a performer or officiant who is performing activities that require vocalization (like talking or singing) at a faith gathering, wedding, funeral, etc.”
