When does the New Year begin? Well, it depends. The calendar year runs from January 1 through December 31. The Ridge Church year begins September 1 and concludes August 31. Finally, the Southern Baptist Convention year begins July 1 and ends on June 30. I know it is a lot to keep up with, but someone has to do it.
The Nominating Committee has been busy enlisting folks for the upcoming church year that begins September 1. I hope that when you are asked to serve you will prayerfully consider your response and focus on reasons to serve rather than reasons not to serve. As members of The Ridge Church, we have a responsibility to find areas to serve cheerfully with the gifts that God has equipped us.
Several pressing areas of need include our preschool department. The leadership is in place and assistants are needed. If you have questions or can help one or two Sundays a month please contact the church office.
Now when it comes to the SBC New Year, I want to share some exciting information from the past year.
