The Care Team exists to provide Christian Care for an immediate need or crisis by providing temporary meals to Ridge Church members who are celebrating the birth of a child, recovering from illness or surgery, grieving the loss of a loved one, or to assist those who have financial burdens. For ease of organization the team utilizes a web based system from CareCalendar.org that provides: up to-date information on needs along with driving directions. The system allows you to see unfilled needs and allows you to sign yourself up for them. Then it will e-mail you notifications, and reminders.
If you are a Ridge member or you know someone who needs help with a meal click here and a coordinator will be in touch.
The Care Team helps or supplements a LIFEgroup group when a group member has a need.
You can participate no matter what your cooking skills are. You simply need to cook or purchase a meal for another family, and transport the meal to the person in need. Don't worry if cooking is not your specialty - a simple spaghetti meal would do!
The commitment can vary. You may be asked to cook one meal per month, or once every few months. This is a wonderful opportunity to encourage families and individuals. Sign up by clicking here or pick up a form in the connection area and drop it off in the offering plate. Then our coordinator will contact you when a request has been made.
