I could not be more excited about the month of May at Ridgeview Church! Great things have already occurred such as a record number of cars serviced and ladies helped for the single moms free oil change, the graduation recognition/student Sunday, the Ridgestudents 30 hour famine, a new children's minister in place, one-hundred Panera bagels provided to the faculty at Blue Ridge High for teacher appreciation, several families joining the church in our last membership class, and our volunteers helping out with the Greer Family Fest, to name a few. God is at work through His people!
I do not judge a church solely on numbers but I believe they do point to a level of church health. Let me say that our "numbers" already in May 2010 are much better than May 2009. That is very encouraging! There are some great coming events still left in May: our "Can You See Him?" second coming of Christ series, the outdoor baptism and barbecue May 23 at O'Neal Village, and our first ever Bridge Initiative Summit (May 30) with keynote speaker Dr. Frank Page, North American Mission Board Vice President of Evangelism and former Pastor of Taylors First Baptist and past President of the Southern Baptist Convention.
May is a great month in the life of Ridgeview Church! It is so encouraging to see the people of Ridgeview Church fulfilling their purpose of being a bridge of God's love to all people and making disciples of Him!
