JULY 26, 2020

Live with Integrity: with Josh Zoerhof

As we continue our series on the commandments we explore how the truth
can help us Thrive. 
You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. 
Exodus 20:16

CULTIVATE GROUND BREAKING POSTPONED!
In conversation with Manlius township, it has been discovered that while our site plan has been approved, there is additional landscaping that needs township approval.  In light of this, we have decided to postpone our groundbreaking celebration. Although this approval is more of a formality, out of respect for our neighbors and community, we would like to wait until we have this final stamp of approval.  This township meeting will be held this Monday, July 27, and after that meeting we hope to set a new date. We are looking forward to this facility and what it will do for the community, and we want to honor God, our community and neighbors as we build. 


You can still sign up for Spring Hill Day Camp August 10-14. Check out the Children’s page to sign up

THIS WEEK’S LESSON
Check out our Ridge Kids lesson Here!
The Ridge Kids lesson is on honesty and speaking the truth. We encourage kids to fill out the activity sheet and bring it to the Ridge Kids table for a sweet treat. 

Ridge Kids is meeting in person in the OUTDOOR classroom on Sundays for all of August. Please use this link to register your kids before you come: https://fearless.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/649/responses/new  Our special guest teachers are the Critter Barn and the Outdoor Discovery Center.



STRONGER TOGETHER
Families and friends of incarcerated individuals are able to meet with others who have walked the same overwhelming journey of a loved one behind bars. Shame. Anger. Guilt. The reality of the loss of an income or parenting partner is devastating. Through Stronger Together, families and friends can ask questions and navigate feelings with people who will pray and listen while sharing strength and hope. If you’re interested contact Cal at lubbersc@yahoo.com
