Winter Outreach 2020 - Donating Items For Foster Girls
The time before and after Christmas is often when we clean out old toys to make room for the new toys. We'd like to take advantage of that and use it as an opportunity to help the foster girls at the Anne Elizabeth Shepard Home. We are still unable to resume our monthly dinners due to Covid, but we would like to send monthly care packages next year until we can get back together. The girls love playing board games, doing puzzles and watching movies. From now to January 6th, you can drop off games, puzzles, or movies at the church office from 9am to 3pm, Tuesday - Thursday.
Please make sure ... *Items are clean/in good shape and all the pieces/parts are included. *Items are appropriate for girls age 12-18. *You are giving items you would be happy for your children to receive.
If you want to purchase toys, movies or puzzles to donate, that would be great too.

"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.
