Celebrating 20 Years 2018-09-04T08:38:53+00:00
The Ridge – 20 Years

We’re turning 20!

The year was 1998, Google was founded, the Goo Goo Dolls dominated radio stations (what’s with all the Goo?), the MP3 was invented, you could buy a house in Ankeny at the median price of $150,000 and tucked away in Pastor Mike’s house a small church started. This October, The Ridge is excited to be celebrating our 20th year sharing the good news to our Ankeny community.  Push pause on other activities on Sunday October 14 and plan to join us in celebrating. It’s a birthday worthy of a celebration!

Be part of the celebration!

Share Your Story

Take a moment to share how The Ridge has impacted your life. It could be anything – a story from a small group, baptism or Alpha class that had a lifelong impact on you. We would like to capture your story and share them as part of our testimony to God as a church.

Sunday, October 14, 4-6:00pm at The Ridge

Current and past Ridgers are welcome to a birthday party like no other! Participate in a cake eating contest and test your knowledge of 90s trivia Jeopardy-style. Face painting? Check. Balloon artist? Check. Bounce house … probably. And if fanfare isn’t your thing, we will also have food and a fun slide show of historical images.

Worship Together

Join us at one of our two morning worship times (9:00 am or 10:30 am) on Sunday, October 14. This is an open invitation to past, present and future Ridger’s. This special worship service will capture 20 years of worship – from music to messages. It’s a service to celebrate the work God has done for 20 years and a vision for what the next decade will look like. Note that we will NOT be having a Sunday evening service, instead we ask everyone to come back and join us in the evening for our all-church party!
