There are many areas of ministries that the Dale Ridge congregation is involved in including personal ministries, such as visiting and assisting the home-bound and sick, widows/widowers, or group ministries such as our Ladies Ministries, and Men’s breakfast once a quarter. We also are supporting a young man and his family at the East Tennessee School of Biblical Studies. And, while a lot of what we do takes place ‘behind the scenes’, below are just a few of the ways we seek to help build and grow disciples of Jesus Christ.
One of Dale Ridge's primary involvements is with Hope for Haiti's Children. This allows us the opportunity to help spread the Good News of the love and grace of God to them, while providing them essential education and needs.
"Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
- Matthew 28:19-20
At Dale Ridge, there are a variety of ways our youth can learn and grow in discipleship to the Lord. We offer bible classes for all age groups Sunday and Wednesday, as well as other activities such as VBS, Lock-In's, and many other ways our youth can both learn, grow, and build lasting relationships with each other.
Our women come together often to study and strengthen each other in service to the Lord. They are active with members and guests alike, and come together for crafts, sewing, reviewing an inspiring book, other social activities and bible studies.
Dale Ridge is involved with our communities in many ways. We believe that in order to spread the good news of Jesus, we need to seek people where they are, whether it's direct outreach or helping at community events.
"...let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
- Matthew 5:16
