COVID-19 Update: March 17, 2020

During times when we face the unknown and fear can overtake us, we turn to the Creator of the Universe and His Word.
FAITH – Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
HOPE – I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
LOVE – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27
The church has a unique opportunity to show God’s love and a confidence in Him to those around us. See below for Ridge-specific opportunities.
Worship Services
Worship services will be held on-line at 10:30 am Sunday morning until we can gather together again. The situation is every changing and we will be reevaluating continually. Join us online at ridgelife.org/online this week as Pastor Mike shares a message on peace.
Giving
If you normally place your tithe or offering in the basket on Sunday morning, you can give online or by mailing your check to the church at 825 NW 36th St. Ankeny, IA 50023.
Prayer & Care
Many people among us are being affected directly by COVID-19 and we want to help. Here are some ways we will be loving on our church family & community…prayer, helping distribute lunches through Ankeny schools, picking up groceries and medicines for people, phone calls to check in on people.
If you want to be a part of this effort, contact communitycare@ridgelife.org.
Are you experiencing a hardship? We want to know & help. Please contact communitycare@ridgelife.org.
