GENEROSITY

Does generosity make a difference?

Between wars, natural disasters, poverty, sickness and a whole lot more, our world is full of hurting people. And at times, we can feel powerless to help those in need.

We’re not.

At The Ridge, we believe that generosity is a powerful catalyst for change and that the more we as Christ-followers live generously, the more our world transforms for the better. When our individual acts of generosity combine with those of others, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

We also believe that generosity transforms us as believers in that it teaches us to rely on God and to be obedient to His will for our lives.

That’s why we’re committed to making a difference in the lives of those in our own church community, in our local community and in our global community. We do this through a combination of service, prayer and financial giving.

Where do financial gifts go?

When you give a financial gift, it combines with the gifts of others to support programming at The Ridge such as classes, support groups and children’s ministry; to equip Ridge teams to serve through local and global missions; and to support our ministry partners who provide essential services to the hurting and vulnerable.

You’re Invited

If you feel God prompting you to partner with us in positively impacting the lives of others, consider making a one-time gift or setting up a recurring gift.

Ministry Partner Spotlight:
Wings of Refuge

Wings of Refuge is a Christ-centered organization providing opportunities to survivors of sex trafficking. In 2013, Wings of Refuge began with a prayer movement of 12 individuals whose hearts were broken for those enslaved by commercial sexual exploitation. They pursued training and research for the aftercare of adult female survivors of sex trafficking and opened a safe home where women have the opportunity to heal and find new life.​

It’s OK to Start Small

If you’re new to the idea of giving, it’s perfectly OK to start small. We believe it’s far better to start small than to never start at all. Whether you give or not, God will continue to do amazing things. He will continue to transform lives and reach the lost and broken people of the world. But He wants you to be a part of that work. Jump in where you feel comfortable, and see how God works in and through your generosity.

Giving Through Serving

In addition to financial giving, we believe each person is created with unique gifts and talents that God calls on them to use in service of others. Sharing these is an important part of your journey in following God. This comes in the way of volunteering in our church and serving our larger community locally, nationally, and internationally through missions.
