Welcome to Ridgewood!
I want to personally welcome you as you consider visiting Ridgewood Church of Minnetonka, Minnesota. Although Ridgewood has existed in the Minnetonka area for over 130 years, we are constantly pushing ourselves to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in ways that resonate with our local community. One of the great advantages of living in the southwestern suburbs is the tremendous opportunities our children and young people have to discover and develop their skills. We have wonderful schools, multiple opportunities in sports, the performing arts and specialized skills as well as community based clubs like Scouts. Our desire is that our kids grow to be productive adults who make a contribution to society. But do we even stop to ponder how we build spiritually healthy kids? Do we ever stop and think through what spiritual values we want our kids to appropriate deep within their hearts and minds and to then live out through their adult years? During the winter months I, Pastor Joel, will be preaching a sermon series entitled “Building Spiritual Healthy Families” that uses the words of the Lord’s Prayer as the building block of spiritually healthy kids. The adult d6 small groups shall follow up the sermon with further study and arriving at practical ways to model those values at home and seek to build them into our kid’s lives.
I invite you to poke around our web site, drop me an e-mail, or visit us some Sunday morning to see what God is doing here at Ridgewood and if it might be a good fit for you.
