A Note from Pastor Beth:
In the Wilterdink household we like to sing. And now Robert our 19-month-old, has started singing songs back to us–in the car, in his crib, in the stroller, and on walks. It is the best! What a blessing children are. Then it struck me, what a special gift it is to also be a part of offering our children an inheritance of faith! This week, we have welcomed the Hope Ridge Preschool students back to class, our Gravity Youth Groups had their first meeting last Sunday, and our Ridge Kidz worship will begin in the Youth Room this Sunday. Thank you, Hope Ridge, for giving our children and youth a place to be rooted and grounded in God’s love and grace–and where they can sing!
