Memorial Day

The office will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.  We extend our sincerest gratitude to the men and women who have served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Spaghetti Dinner and Auction

What an awesome night!  We raised $3,425.00 on Sunday evening for our youth’s summer trip to the Christ In Youth Conference in Tennessee.  Thank you to everyone that assisted with the dinner, donated items for the auction and/or purchased “treasures” during the auction. 

Your generosity and support of our youth are greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!!

Website Announcement

Our website revision has been completed.  It has new features and an updated design.  We have also added pictures to each page along with an updated gallery.  The “page header” pictures and photo albums will be updated on a regular basis.  A media page for Kurt and Don’s sermons has been added along with a blog that will include currents events, news items and other notes from the church staff.

Bible verses are used throughout our website. They are linked to the New International Version to encourage further exploration of God’s Word.

Missions that are supported by our church have been added along with a link to their website or facebook page.

We are currently working with Easy Tithe to provide online giving capabilities for our members and friends. Those options will be available in the near future.

It has been a joy to create this new website. Several individuals assisted me with this project.  For their assistance and expertise, I am most grateful.  Thank you to everyone that was involved in the process.  Bell Ridge Christian Church truly is “The church with a warm heart!”

Carrying Jesus’ Cross

On the Wednesday night before Easter, the youth group carried a cross to symbolize how Jesus carried His cross to save us from our sins.   Would you carry His cross?  Will you help empower our young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ?
