Ridgecrest Presbyterian Church

Ellen Gaskins writes the Ridgecrest News.

July 29, the worship service was led by Ellen Gaskins. The scriptures were from I Corinthians 15:12-19. The Old Testament reading was from Genesis 2:15-17.

August 5, the message, “Some Common Sense,” was presented by Larry Pittman. The sermon scriptures were from Ezekiel 22:8-14. The Old Testament readings were from I Corinthians 15:29-34.
On Saturday, from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. there will be a community yard sale held in the fellowship hall at Ridgecrest Presbyterian Church.

Anyone who would like to donate to this yard sale is ask to bring their items to the church fellowship hall and leave them at the door.

Items will be brought into the fellowship hall daily. All proceeds will go to the church.
Please make plans to come by and check out all the items. Everyone is welcome.

Homecoming is Sept. 9. Please spread the word to everyone and plan to join us for the service, food and fellowship. There will be a covered dish meal following the morning service. Lots of good homecooked food so plan to be there.

The Mid-Atlantic Presbytery meeting is Sept. 28-29, at the Lake Forest Church in Huntersville. We need two Elders to attend. Elders are asked to consider going and let the pastor know if you can go.

Prayer meeting is now on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.. All are welcome to join us in the fellowship hall.

The August food challenge for the Stanly Community Christian Ministry is canned or dried beans, canned tomatoes and rice. They are also in need of soup, Beef-a-roni, Hamburger Helper, jelly, canned meats and oatmeal.
