Join us for our Ladies’ Fall 2017 Bible Studies!
You have many opportunities this year so join us in digging into God’s Word.
Hosea – Unfailing Love Changes everything; by Jennifer Rothschild
Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You'll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply the message of the prophet of love.
The book will challenge us with judgment so harsh it will singe our hair—an unheeded sermon warning of devastating doom shortly to come. But it will show us the kind of love we dream about. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse—and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope—hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.
We will have an interactive video followed by small group discussion. Workbooks cost $13 and will be available after registration. Join us at either of these times:
- Tuesday mornings 9:15 – 11:30 in the Ridgeline Library (Rm. 106)
September 12 – October 31 (skipping October 10)
Childcare is available – see registration form for information.
- Wednesday evenings 6:15 – 7:45 in the Ridgeline Library (Rm. 106)
September 13 – November 1 (skipping October 11)

We would like to invite you to a new Women’s Book Club here at Ridgeline. We will explore a variety of literature, including Christian fiction, non-fiction, the classics, biographies and popular literature from today. Through discussion we will look at literature through God's lens to see where and how God is working, to challenge us in our walk with Him and deepen our reliance on Him. This is a great opportunity for those of us who are stuck in a rut of always reading the same kind of books. This is a fun way to introduce friends and neighbors to the church and to other Christian women.
We will meet the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the home of Renee Ruff. A different book will be discussed every month. Everyone is responsible for getting their own books. Please RSVP to Renee or let her know you are interested at 720-331-3106 or email@example.com.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
MOPS meets at Ridgeline two Fridays of every month, from 9:15 - 11:30 am. Childcare is provided. Click here to be redirected to the MOPS web page for specific 2017-2018 meeting dates.
What is MOPS? MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.
We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS."
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world. For more information, contact Katie Carrico at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our small group Bible studies provide opportunities for God’s Word to inspire, challenge, and equip women to understand who God is and who they are in relationship to Him. There are several small groups for women meeting at different times throughout the week (days and evenings) and focusing on different topics or books of the Bible. For more information about these studies, see above or contact Barb Larson at Barb.Larson@ridgelinecc.org.
HAND-IN-HAND COMMUNITY OUTREACH
The vision of this ministry is to reach those in need outside our walls with the practical, extravagant, life-giving love of Jesus, one family at a time. To find out how you can be involved in this vital ministry, contact Karen Vincent at email@example.com.
FIND A CUPPA FRIENDS
Gather with other Ridgeline women for a relaxed time of connecting over a cup of coffee or tea. We meet the first Saturday of many months from 9 – 10:30 am at a local coffee shop or at someone's home (rotates locations). Come and meet some new friends!
Contact: Jean Cooley for locations and dates at 303-809-1852 or firstname.lastname@example.org
WOMEN OF INFLUENCE: MENTORING MINISTRY
Mentoring happens when a seasoned traveler walks alongside someone else to encourage, share experiences, and give God’s perspective as they share the journey of their walk with Christ. We desire to see every woman at Ridgeline involved in Christ-centered, caring relationships. In these relationships, we can celebrate milestones, face challenges and grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus - together. Want to learn more? Please contact Barb Larson: email@example.com
WOMEN'S SUNDAY MORNING COMMUNITY GROUP BIBLE STUDY
Join us on Sunday mornings from 9:10 - 10:15 in the basement, as Kathi Curtis will be leading a small group discussion on 2 Corinthians beginning in September. No book or registration is required and there will be no homework. Please feel free to drop in any Sunday you are available - we’d love to have you!
Since Jesus met the physical needs of hurting people, the vision of Care Ministries is to be His hands and feet to people in need. Opportunities for serving in this area include meals or housecleaning after surgery, the birth of a child, or during an extended illness; hospital visitation; sympathy cards; and other practical helps. If you are aware of needs within our body or community, or if you would like to get involved in this very practical ministry, please contact Nancy Youree at firstname.lastname@example.org.
