Local Ministry Opportunities

Christ Ridge definitely wants to make a difference in our local community.  We have been exploring ways of ministering to people in our local area and have come up with four areas where we think we can Partner with Other Ministries.  The four areas are:

  • Pro-life:  working with a crisis pregnancy center (particularly helping fill out Medicaid eligibility forms)
  • Pro-life:  sidewalk counseling
  • Material needs:  providing help with food, utility payments, etc.
  • Racial reconciliation:  working with a local predominantly black church in their ministries.

If you are interested in any of these ministries, please contact any Elder or Deac for more information and to understand how you can be involved.  (End of announcement in the bulletin.)
