If you are visiting, we want to extend a special welcome to you, and we invite you to an informal reception immediately following our worship service. Please visit the Welcome Center in the Lobby to receive a special gift when you turn in a Communication Card.


TIME AWAY

Pastor Jeff and Mary are on a family vacation in Marquette, Michigan, near the shore of Lake Superior. This will include time with family and visits to extended family. It will include hiking, boating, fishing, reading and traveling. For most of the trip, Pastor Jeff will be away from cell phone reception and internet connections. If you have a need or occasion for pastoral support, please contact Pastor Kerry Cox or Kreg Kastelz. Pastor Jeff returns the weekend of August 13.

Aspen Ridge will hold a Baptism Weekend on Sunday, August 27. This is in the way of Jesus’ Great Commission “…make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” If you are interested, please contact a church leader or a member of our pastoral staff. Further, we will be hosting two orientation meetings (and you may choose one to attend). These include Sunday, August 13, at 10:15 AM and at 4:00 PM in Pastor Jeff’s office.
