 Well Done, Good and Faithfull Servant!
This month we celebrate Mother’s Day, a very special holiday in ourhearts and minds. I am reminded as I reflect on this holiday the impact of a mother’s love and faith upon our lives. Writing to pastor Timothy, Paulsays, “I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in yourgrandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, nowlives in you also.” (2 Timothy 1:5) Though it is God who meets our everyneed, often He uses people to accomplish His will. Let’s thank God forgodly mothers who have made an immeasurable impact on our lives, bynurturing within us a faith in the Lord that will see us through this life andon into eternity.I hope you are as excited as I am about our new Worship and FamilyMinistries’ leader, John Russell. Our wait is almost over and John willlead his first service at Ridgecrest on May 27
. Thank you so muchRidgecresters for your prayers and support of the search committee as wesought God’s will for our church. Thank you to all who worked and gaveto prepare our missionary housing for John and Laura Leigh to occupyuntil they find a permanent home. Remember our prayers and service ontheir behalf are not over but have just begun. Let’s join together in prayerand support of John and Laura Leigh both now and after they join us sothat his leadership and service will be blessed by God and so our churchwill be a blessing to them.In Christian service, Bro. Mike
May is a busy, yet rewarding month. It signals the end of another school yearand a more laid back time called summer! We have so many end-of-yearprograms that you need to be aware of offering you the chance to support ourchildren and youth as they are recognized for their accomplishments.On Sunday, April 29th, we heard the Preschool and Childrens Choirs sing andbe recognized for their participation in choir this past year. The participants inYouth Worship Arts were also recognized for their dedication.On Wednesday, May 9th, we will recognize our Mission Friend’s, G.A.’s,R.A.’s and our Acteens group at 6:15 p.m. during the prayer meeting in theworship center. Our AWANA recognition program will be on Sunday, May20th, at 6:00 p.m.Please plan to attend these special programs and support our children and allof the many volunteers that work with them each week!Please sign up at the Vacation Bible School display to help with VBS. It isscheduled for Sunday, June 10th through Wednesday, June 13th, from 5:30 –8:30 p.m. each night. The theme this year is Amazing Wonders Aviation inwhich we will learn of God’s great love for us! Proverbs 22:6 tells us to Traina child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.Thanks to all of the volunteers who willingly give of their time and talents toteach our children and youth about our Lord and Savior.In His service, Susan Campbell
As an individual, are you investing your talent wisely? As a church, arewe good stewards of the opportunities God has given us? If the answer isno, why? What do we have to be afraid of? Look what happened to theservant that was afraid (v24-30). I don’t think any of us want to be “ThatGuy”! Our goal is to be like the first two servants! Our goal, asindividuals and as a Church is to hear “Well Done, My Good and FaithfulServant!”Blessings, TomP.S. As I wrote my article this month I had no idea God would give us animmediate opportunity (before it was ever published) to be faithful andshare His love. Unfortunately, on Monday, April 23, two young boysaccidentally drowned at Cypress Court Apartments. We had ministeredto them through block parties, and several members of our churchtutored them every Tuesday and Thursday.At the news of the tragedy, our church family was immediatelyinvolved caring for the family, comforting and consoling them, andsome of our members provided food for them. Ridgecrest establisheda memorial fund to help the family take care of the arrangements.Thank You! Thank you for your willingness to serve, for your lovingkindness, and your generosity.I’ve been asked by the youth, “Why did Jesus teach in parables? Whydidn’t He just tell people exactly what He meant?” There are severalreasons. First, He taught in parables to fulfill the prophecy of Psalm78:2 and Isaiah 6:9-10. God in His infinite wisdom originated parablesto transcend time, culture, situation and meaning.This holds true for the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30), wherethe master gives his servants differing quantities of talents. The talents
could represent, 1) money; 2) people (or actual individual talent); or 3)
opportunity. It can be applied to individuals or to the entire church.Our Master, has given each of us unique talents. He wants us, asindividuals, to use those talents, investing them wisely to grow Hiskingdom. As a Church, He provided us with finances, people andopportunities. Our challenge is to recognize our members’ talents, theopportunities He gives us, and how to invest ourselves to grow thekingdom of God.Our ministry to the children at Cypress Court Apartments is one of thoseopportunities that God has given us. While we were not looking for it,God gave us the opportunity to minister to underprivileged kids throughthe AWANA program. Several of the children have come to know JesusChrist as their Savior. The Lord has given us other opportunities like AllNations Baptist Church, and missions opportunities.
