Hello Ridge Family!

In our last update, we had decided to continue with having our gatherings online only due to the spike of COVID cases across Texas.  We now see a downward trend in cases and have schools across the area beginning to have in-person learning.  So, after much prayer and consideration we will meet again for in-person worship gatherings beginning this Sunday, September 13, at 10 am.

We will have one service at 10 am with limited capacity.  We will have our reservation system in place one again to help us with social distancing.  A link to reserve your seat will go out each week.  We also ask when you come that you would wear a mask.  We appreciate you taking these steps as we continue to be loving and caring to those in our
church and community.

We know some will continue to stay at home during this season.  We completely understand and don't want you to feel pressured into returning in-person until you are ready.  In light of that, we will continue to offer online resources.  We are offering a new online resource that will host all of our gatherings for our ministries online plus other information.  It is called, Ridge at Home.  We believe it is important during this time to be connected as a church family, whether we are online or in-person and as individual families.  We believe Ridge at Home resource will help with that.

We will also be offering something for our Ridge Kidz at 10 am on Sunday mornings.  For right now it will be for K-5th grade only.
  Erica and her team have been working hard to provide a safe and fun experience for your children.  Be sure to watch our welcome back video, so you know what to expect.  All children are welcome in the service and we will also continue to utilize our weekly video lessons for kids.

Students will also start meeting in-person on Wednesdays as well.
  Vince and his team have also been working hard to provide a safe and fun experience for your students.  Students will be wearing masks and also practicing social distancing the best they can.  For more information check out The Ridge Students on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and continue to watch for email updates.  There will also continue to be online resources provided as well.

LIFEgroups
 will also start meeting in-person.  Some may still decide to continue to meet online and that is fine.

Thank you for your patience and grace throughout this season.  Our greatest desire is to magnify Jesus and to love and serve you the best we can.  Please join us in praying for this Sunday as we gather in-person and online across homes in our community.

For your joy,
Jerry

Practice steps to prevent illness, including frequent hand-washing, minimizing close contact (especially as you greet each other), and staying at home if you’re experiencing sickness (and seeking out medical care).
