Ridge Partnership

Sunday October 2, 2016 to Sunday October 23, 2016

WHY PARTNER?

To understand and participate in the mission and vision of PRC
To create a culture of FAMILY – one that connects relationally and grows spiritually
To encourage all of us to live missionally by being Christ to the world.

UP-IN-OUT

You will attend four one hour sessions. Three of the sessions will provide an overview and teaching on each of the three spiritual formation areas: Up, In and Out. This will include practical tools and steps for growth. There will also be one session that will include specific information about the history of Prairie Ridge Church, our mission statement and values and more! 

DECIDE TO PARTNER


As a disciple of Christ you will ultimately discover and determine your life purpose and will be commissioned to live it out as a member of Prairie Ridge Church and as a member of God’s kingdom

Join us on Sunday October 2, 9, 16 and 23 at 9am!
