Christmas Eve 2020 -

With warm goodies and warm fires, we celebrated the birth of Jesus in a simple, yet extraordinary way. And for those who were unable to be out in the elements, we were able to stream the service through the radio. Thank you to everyone who made it possible. And many thanks to our Amazing God who gave us a most beautiful Christmas evening - clear skies, mild temperatures, no wind, and even a few inches of snow on the ground. We experienced the extraordinary - and our extraordinary God - right in the midst of the ordinary.

A Visible Reminder of God's Faithfulness

Spring 2021 -

During Holy Week of 2020, we "blossomed the cross" in a unique way: rather than placing flowers in a cross during our Easter Sunrise Service, we placed fabric ties on a cross that perched outside for any who wished to celebrate the resurrection. That very special week has been commemorated in a very special way. Nancy Allison used every single piece of fabric on that cross and created a beautiful piece of art - a quilted wall hanging that now hangs at Pine Ridge Community Church. We are so grateful to Nancy for using her creative gifts to help us remember a very special celebration.

Cabin Fever - A Deep Woods Encounter with Jesus

We had such a fun week! From daily lessons in a hunting tent, to true fish stories, to a bear hunt. And what VBS isn't full of crafts, snacks, skits, and music? Best of all, we learned how much Jesus loves us and wants us to draw near to Him and tell others about Him.

Prayer Space Dedication

"Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I for You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe."

Psalm 62:1

A prayer has been answered. When PRM participants built the prayer space behind Pine Ridge Community Church, it was our prayer that many would find it a rejuvenating space for refuge and encounter with God. We have heard from many that that is indeed the case. By the grace and glory of God, it is a holy place. Any and all are invited to engage in some quiet and holy reflection.

Christmas Eve 2021 -

It's becoming a tradition! The events of 2020 made us rethink our Christmas celebration, and it turns out we loved the revamp! Our 2021 Christmas Eve service was once again filled with warm goodies and a warm fire, song to fill the soul, and the good news of Christ's incarnation. , God gave us a beautiful evening to worship Him and celebrate the birth of His son - the Savior of the world.
