why my kids love ridge church...

These pictures and video were taken tonight in UpStreet, our kindergarten through 5th grade children's environment. This is one of the many reasons my kids can't wait for Sunday nights! During the summer months our UpStreet environment has been transformed into FLIPT. Patrick, Adam and Lauren rocked the new set!! Awesome job guys!! The kids loved it and are already talking about what kind of exciting adventure next week might hold for them! Nights like tonight, when my kids get in the car and can't stop talking about how much fun they had at church, or how funny their small group leaders were during worship, or when they brag to me that "their" church was funner then mine, make all the craziness and uncertainty this past year has brought, worth every single second..... If just one child, who is unchurched, goes home with the same excitement my kids leave with every week; this thing called Ridge is truly making a difference.... and that makes it worth whatever obstacles we may have to climb over. If you watch this video, there is a little boy with a yellow shirt on, off to the right of the screen. His name is James and tonight was his first time @ Ridge. Does he look like he's having a great time or what??? That is why we do what we do....each and every week that the Lord allows us to be a part of this amazing place called Ridge Church!
