Thanksgiving Boxes

You can begin lining up in the parking lot as early as 4pm and you will see clearly marked lanes with traffic cones.  We will begin distribution at 6pm and we do have a MAX of 300 Thanksgiving boxes.  Each family will receive, at least, one box of non-perishable items, as well as a Thanksgiving Box (Voucher for Turkey from Food City, Stuffing, Potatoes, Green Beans, Mac and Cheese, Milk, eggs, butter.) We deeply care for our community and want to see if flourish in the mist of a difficult season!  See you Sunday, Nov. 22nd.

Volunteer for Thanksgiving Boxes

If you want to help serve, email Ryan at (ryanm@ridgedalebaptist.org). You can serve at 3pm to help pack the Thanksgiving boxes or help with distribution at 5pm.

It seems like every day, even every hour, the realities of our world are changing. If we are not careful, confusion and uncertainty can rule our day, however, we must remember our call to embrace hope, to embrace Jesus. Hope is our trusted companion because we know that our God does not change, even when our world does. He is ever-present and promises to be with us.

“Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For the Lord your God is the one who will go with you; he will not leave you or abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

As you seek to navigate this season, please remember that we are still a family. Even though we can’t meet corporately, we are the Church. Let us pray for one another, use technology to encourage each other and to stay spiritually fed, and continue to live on missions in new and creative ways.

Our pastors and leaders have created this resource page to help to navigate this season. Please check back as we will continue to update this resource page.
