GUEST SPEAKER THIS WEEKEND
We welcome Stephen Miller as our guest speaker this weekend. Stephen and Ann been missionary partners with us for over 38 years. Serving for 48 years in the mission field, they are now mentoring and coaching future missionaries for God’s kingdom.
We want to extend a special welcome to visitors and guests, and we invite you to an informal reception immediately following our worship service. Pastor Jeff will meet you at the Welcome Center, where you can receive a special gift when you turn in a Communication Card.
Aspen Ridge received a 98% favorable vote to extend a call to Lawrence Pridmore as Associate Pastor of Worship Arts. Lawrence and his family have accepted this call and are targeting a starting date in mid-November. We are full of expectancy and faith that God will move in powerful ways through Pastor Lawrence and our church family in the coming months and years! Please keep them in your prayers as they make this transition.
Soup’er Saturdays are back the first Saturday of each month following the evening service, beginning on November 3.
