Welcome to the Family! Our goal is to help you take a next step to Follow Jesus and Fearlessly Make Him Known!
September 26 & 27, 2020
Life Groups kick off OCT. 4 4-6
Are you ready to live an Extra- Ordinary Life?
As we step into another season of ministry this Fall, we have an opportunity to prepare, plant, water and watch God do the extra-ordinary. We want to come alongside you and provide you with the resources you need. This October, we will be kicking off a study based on the sermon series “Extra-Ordinary.” In this series we will examine the extraordinary faith of ordinary women and men who experienced the transformational power of God in their everyday lives. We will explore topics such as extraordinary compassion, extra-ordinary prayer, extra-ordinary courage and extra-ordinary humility to help us move to fearlessly living, empowered, extra-ordinary lives.
This is a great time for you to step into a life group or for your life group to plant new seeds and water old plants and enjoy growth and fruitfulness. If you are interested in becoming part of a Life Group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you set up.
A-MAZE–ING Trunks and Treats
This fall is off and rolling and you know what that means! It’s time to start preparing for our annual trunk or treat event! Candy donations can be dropped in the main lobbies at Door E or Door F. Email CarolineK@fearlessfollower.org to sign up your trunk!
Fill a Bag – Fill a Belly
The Fearless Family is For Every Child and we want to pour into the next generation by making sure they have access to regular nutritious meals. Something as ordinary as a meal can have an extraordinary impact on a child’s education and quality of life. We want to partner with Kids Food Basket to reach the world around us with extra-ordinary compassion and provide 600 supper packs and 200 personality paper bags throughout the month of October.
Starting Oct 3 stop by the Fill a bag, Fill a belly displays. Grab a box of quart sized bags.
Each box will have list of non-perishable food items that you will purchase.
Fill each bag with the items listed
(Pudding Cup, Fruit Cup or Pouch (no foil tops please), Small Raisin Box, Two .28 oz Meat Sticks)
and return to Ridge Point by Oct. 31.
Each bag will be delivered to child in Ottawa county who is food insecure. This bag will bless a child with supper and the nutrition they need to do their homework and thrive in school.
