Ridge Goes Kinetic...

Kinetic Church is a "load in, load out" church just like Ridge. They are currently meeting at a movie theater in Concord, NC. They have been storing all their equipment for their services in trailers behind their offices. On March 2nd, those trailers were stolen! Everything they needed to set up and run their preschool and children's ministry and all of their foyer environment is gone. Overnight, they lost half of everything they had been so blessed with. I can't even begin to imagine this happening to us. The staff at Ridge has decided to join together with Kinetic Church for Easter Sunday. We are taking UpStreet (our K-5th Grade worship) and Waumba Land (our preschool ministry) to Concord and Ridge will be serving and worshiping with Kinetic's church family. It amazes me to be part of a church that is eager to spend their Easter Sunday serving at another church. We are not able to help them financially, but we have what they need most right now - "church in a box"! We have all the equipment and the volunteers ready to make it happen, so off we go this Sunday. I am constantly amazed at the staff at Ridge Church. We were unable to arrange for a facility to have our own Easter services (again, God's timing is perfect!) so instead of taking a break this week, they decided to load up all of our stuff, drive 30 minutes, and spend the day setting up and serving at another church! We do all this because this is what the Lord calls us to do... serve and love one another.....
Ridge is an amazing church and I am so proud to be a part of this family!

God is so cool! It blows my mind how He works and just makes these things happen.
I'll be praying for both churches stability.
Happy Easter......
