DV8 Student Weekend

April 29/30

DV8 is taking over! This coming weekend, Kreg Kastelz, Director of Student Ministries, will be giving the message, and the DV8 students will be greeting, singing, ushering and more! Join us to hear about their upcoming Mexico missions trip, and bring some cash for their bake sale goodies.

Wednesday Evenings

Family activities abound

On Wednesday evenings, at 5:00 PM, there's a home-cooked meal for only $2.50 per person (max $10 per family). Afterwards, we have middle school gatherings, AWANA for kids and an Alpha Course for adults. Check it out - all are welcome!

Tell Others the story

we'd love to hear from you

Have you had an opportunity recently to tell the greatest story ever told to a friend or neighbor? Drop us a line and let us know how to rejoice with and pray for you. 



Now, in putting together our Easter celebration weekend, I hope to address all three persons with an exposition on what difference the death, burial and, especially, resurrection of Jesus Christ may make in a person’s life. This is the burden of 1 Corinthians 15.

Imagine for a moment that you’re inviting someone to your home that you have been trying to connect with for a long time, and they finally agree. Maybe it’s even an author or public speaker or an actor that you have long-admired, and now you have the chance to have them in your home! 

On the occasion of a candidate weekend (January 14/15) for our search team’s recommendation for Director of Student Ministry, I thought I would describe a handful of convictions about how we discern God’s leading in an important matter like this. It cannot be stated too strongly that a decision about how we support our students toward the fulfillment of our vision is vital to the health of Aspen Ridge for our present and our future ministry.

I will never forget as a young man coming to learn about the Christian faith. I had a background with some exposure to religion. I intuitively knew that God existed. I knew something about his holiness and his law.  I also knew that I fell short, and this led to a guilt issue that wouldn’t go away.
