In Acts chapter two, followers of Jesus knew that deep, authentic relationships were vital to their spiritual growth. So this early church formed a community. They ate together, worshiped together, shared their belongings—in essence, they did life together. As a result, they grew stronger in their relationships with God and with one another. People were drawn to investigate Christianity because of the loving relationships these believers had.
At The Ridge, we take biblical community seriously, too. Men and women are invited into a journey of transformation and relationship building through studies that encourage them to grow in their relationships with God and with others. It’s always about building relationships and taking next steps in your journey toward Christ.
What started as a group of men meeting on Friday mornings has grown into one of our fastest growing ministries. Our men's study groups gather each week to learn how to follow God by digging into to the Bible. While most groups meet Friday morning's, there are multiple groups participating in Ankeny (and Ames) throughout the week.
