Thank you Notes
This week we received many thank you notes from our various outreach efforts! You can read them below:
Nackawic Middle School
Dear Members of The Ridge Church,
We wanted to send a note to thank you for the lovely treats and cards that were delivered to our staff! We were touched by your thoughtfulness and wanted to express how much it meant to us.
-The Staff of Nackawic Middle School
Nackawic High School
Dear The Ridge Church,
On behalf on the staff of Nackawic High School, I’d like to express our appreciation for the cards and treat you provided to each of us during teacher and staff appreciation week. Everyone was very surprised and grateful to find the treats in their mailboxes. We really appreciateYour continued support and kindness.
Nackawic Elementary School
To The Ridge Church,
I just wanted to say thank you for the cards and treats sent today. The staff were very excited and appreciative. I can see them checking their mailboxes from my office and their eyes lit up as they saw their treats and cards. This really means a lot and I am so thankful of the kindness shown from our church on a regular basis. I can attest to say that there is no other church that has reached out like ours has during the 9 years I have been at this school. I am sure the staff ‘s take away from all these thoughtful gestures is that there a great mission going on at the Ridge Church and that God’s love is behind it all.
World Hope International
Dear The Ridge Church, it’s hard to believe that 2021 is here. What a year it has been. I want to thank you for being on the World Hope Team and helping to see transformation take place around the world. Many lives have been changed! I don’t know what 2021 will hold, but I look forward to seeing God’s kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

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.”
