The Ridge church recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic. Our partner in ministry is Mission Emanuel in Santo Domingo.
Rose Hill UMC
The Ridge church sponsors a meal every second Tuesday of the month at Rose Hill United Methodist Church. This mission organization provides food, clothes and services to the homeless community of Columbus.
What: Serving the homeless and hungry at Rose Hill UMC
Where: Rose Hill UMC, 2101 Hamilton Road, Columbus GA
When: Second Tuesday of every month @ 5:15
Contact Person @ Rose Hill: Pastor Mark Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org
How to help: You can either prepare a meal and serve it, or you can fund a meal for Rose Hill folks to cook, then come and help serve.
What you need to do:
Contact Caroline Laney (email@example.com) to sign your JG up for a month.
Decide whether you want to prepare your own meal or fund a meal.
Contact Mark Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your service date and to coordinate details. Mark is the one who can answer questions about where to go, what to bring, guidelines for meals, how much to fund a meal, etc.
Show up and serve with your JG!
Pack The Pantry
The Ridge participated in "Pack The Pantry" on Thanksgiving weekend and provided Rose Hill UMC with the resources needed to minister to the homeless in Uptown Columbus. It took a covered trailer and two trucks to carry all the supplies!
We are blessed to be in ministry with such a wonderful mission.
Connect Day Of Missions
Instead of "Going" to church, the plan is to "Go" and BE the church. The Ridge partnered with various organizations all over the city.
What is Barefoot Sunday? On Sunday, Nov. 22d, we invite you to come to worship as usual but depart without your shoes. The shoes will be gathered and donated to Rose Hill United Methodist Church Missions. This organization provides food and clothing to the poor. As winter approaches, we're honored to help provide shoes for the homeless in our city. It may be awkward, uncomfortable, or even a bit painful, but one of the goals of Barefoot Sunday is to enable us to empathize in a new way with the poor and remind us that, "To whom much is given, much is expected."
Pure water remains elusive to too many people in the Dominican Republic. Mission Emanuel's water treatment and distribution centers provide affordable pure water to thousands each day in poor suburbs of Santo Domingo. Each Card purchased for $15 allows a family to purchase ten 5-gallon bottles for only 5 pesos. That's the equivalent of 12.5 cents. It is reported that water-borne illness in the area M.E. serves has been reduced by 70%.
We are proud sponsors of the ministry of Mission Emanuel and will take a collection for water cards on December 20th. Please consider giving the gift of pure water to a Dominican family this Christmas Season.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 18:19-20
Here at The Ridge, we are humbled and honored that God has called us to minister to His people from many different walks of life. We know that God loves ALL of His children and wants them to discover and know His purpose for their lives, as fully devoted followers of Jesus. We seek to further the kingdom of God by sharing Christ’s love through various mission opportunities. The Ridge also participates in mission work as an entire church body, as well as through our Journey Groups. Our prayer is that God will give us the wisdom to know what needs He is calling us to meet and that He would be glorified through all that we do.
