Community Easter Egg Hunt This Saturday!

Community Easter Egg Hunt This Saturday!
Thanks to all of you who came over to Rocks' restaurant Sunday after church and helped us stuff eggs. The food was great, the fellowship was sweet, and we got a lot accomplished. We are excited about partnering with Northwood Baptist Church this Saturday from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at Lake Cunningham Park for this great outreach. We have a number of people signed up to volunteer. If you would like to get in on this opportunity Saturday to serve, let me know and I will get you in touch with our coordinators. It's a great opportunity to invite your neighbors to come with you as well.
Big Day #2 of the year: Easter! Ridgeview Church goal is 215.
Please begin praying now for those you would like to invite to our Easter service on Sunday, April 4. Our church goal is 215 people for that Sunday. It has been wonderful to see new people who have come to Ridgeview from our first Big Day of the year (February 7) and see them get connected into the life of the church. Did you know we had 154 people this past Sunday at Ridgeview? That means we would only need 61 more people to reach our goal of 215. Just think about this: iif every person in our church brought with them just one person on Easter Sunday we would have around 300 people! I will be sharing more this Sunday with you on some invite tools and ways you can reach out to those you love and care about this Easter. After all, Easter is the BIGGEST DAY of the year for Christians. Jesus gave His life on the Cross for us and in Him we can have forgiveness of sins. That's the greatest news in the world. I can't wait to celebrate it with you and those I have invited for Easter Sunday!
The Lord's Supper on Palm Sunday like we've never done it before
I look forward to sharing with you this Sunday through some visual representations on stage the triumphal entry of Christ. There were massive amounts of people there in Jerusalem. Estimates are around 2.5 million. Surely, there were some things left behind in the streets after the parade was over. I invite you this Sunday to explore the people that were there and the things they left behind that spectacular day. At the the end of the message, we will partake of the Lord's Supper in a way that will challenge us all to leave some things behind and follow Christ.
God is doing great things at Ridgeview Church! It is a joy to be on this journey with you!
