Cuddle Time: Spend some time cuddled with your child thanking God for helping us with anything. “Dear God, thank You for helping us no matter what we need help with.

Worship

Hey Ridge Family,
I had such a good time worshipping with you all on Sunday morning.  There was a great spirit in the room for both services.  Always a fun time when kids are incorporated in the service, and always a blessing when young kids are around and holding microphones (thataboy Eli!! Future worship leader!) Below is the setlist and the artist in case you want to worship with these songs during the week!

Like a Lion–David Crowder Band
Yearn–Shane and Shane
Revelation Song–Kari Jobe or Gateway Worship
Broken in Your Hands–Reo Hoots (that’s right, our very own)

Look forward to worshipping with you guys next week!

Much Love,
Ryan

I Quit Living In Fear

Do you remember where you were when you heard about the attacks on September 11, 2001?

More important question…What was your response to September 11, 2001?

Fears range in levels of significance.

My fear of getting caught speeding to my fear of snakes to my fear of losing my children.  While I use the same word on all 3 there are different levels of fear and they play out differently in my life.

1.  Fear is two things
Fear is our response to being caught in sin.
Fear is our response when we lose control.  (Trust)

Story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

Read Daniel 3
He can…/He will…/But even if He doesn’t
2.   We defeat fear by resting in God
Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Rod and staff symbolize the presence, the protection, and the guidance of God.
3.   Times of fear can become times of platforms.
He can…/He will…/But even if He doesn’t

What’s your story of God in your times of fear?

Car Time

While driving around town this month, talk about things that are really hard to do. It’s really hard to learn to tie our shoes. Who can help you? God can help me do anything. It’s really hard to eat our veggies sometimes. Who can help you? God can help me do anything.

Cookies For Kairos

Having a meal is great, but getting dessert at the end of the meal is a bonus. Just like desserts, grace is something extra we get that we don’t necessarily deserve or expect. It’s a bonus.

No matter what we’ve done or where we are, Jesus will come and find us, just like He spent time with people in the Bible who didn’t always get things right. And you know what? Not a single one of us gets things right all the time. But God promises to look for us anyway. We get a lot more than we deserve. In fact, we get exactly what we don’t deserve: a loving Savior.

Use this Kidz Creek Take-Out tool to help lead your family in a fun family night of baking cookies and sharing grace!

Don’t forget to return your baked and packaged cookies at your campus on September 11th.
