what to expect
At The Ridge Church of Sullivan, you'll be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are excited to see you. We want you to have an idea of what we're about. At a weekend service you can expect the following:
Christianity is all about a Person, and less about a set of rules. That means that we exist to be in a relationship with Someone, that's Jesus, and merely not to obey a religion.
The church exists to exalt our living Lord in worship, edify one another, and equip believers for life, ministry and reaching a lost world. Each service will end with an invitation.
Fun and faith filled, children can learn and celebrate the love of Jesus. Ages 4-11
Quiet room/nursery available for children, ages 0-2. Additionally, a 3-4 year old room is also available.
We were made for a relationship with God and for a relationship with each other. Every person that walks through that door is important to us. Our heartbeat is to see people restored to their faith, their church, and their families.
God is the audience we serve; whether it be traditional hymns or contemporary songs, we sing about Him and to Him.
The Church is about values and not rules. Dress it up, or dress casual. You can find the pastor and others wearing jeans. The Church values authenticity and reverence toward God and God cares more about your inward appearance.
Sunday service starts at 9am or 11am and last approximately an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes. We will open up with announcements and then worship through music - a mix of traditional or contemporary songs with a keyboard, guitars drums, and singers. An offering bucket is passed around for our church family; no one ever expects our guests to feel any obligation to give. Next, Children's Church is dismissed before the message. The message is preached through practical Bible teaching and is to engage you and challenge you in hopes to sustain you on your journey of life and faith. Each service will end with an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. This is a time for those to come forward that have decided to make a spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ or a chance for anybody seeking to come up and pray with one another.
Children's Church (5-12 years), the nursery room (0-2 years), and the 3-4 year old room are available during the service. Coffee, light refreshments, and breakfast items are available before each service.
