Why We Give
In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35
Your Gifts at Work
Jesus-followers share the joy of giving financially to the work of the local church. The Apostle Paul wrote: "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7). As cheerful givers we enable ministries that Make Jesus Known through Community Impact. Reach and Restore, MOPS, Persons with Disabilities, and other community related programs, provide a unique opportunity to spread the love of Jesus so that many will come to know him as Lord and Savior. God will use your gifts to strengthen Ridgewood Church and create a dynamic force for the Kingdom. Thank you for giving!
Your gifts helped to make these new renovations possible at Reach & Restore, an organization that connects people with needs to people with resources.
Why give online?
Security and convenience make online transactions an increasingly popular means of donating to an organization. Plus, your ministry enjoys administrative savings (manual check processing and record keeping add up in a hurry). You also can take advantage of the discipline that recurring donations can provide for your giving.
