Thank you to all who have donated to the Ridgefield Food Pantry collection sponsored by the Monday night "I AM" Outreach Group. Over 250 pounds (that's over 270 items) of food and household supplies have been contributed from May through September. With the changing leaves and dropping temperatures, October’s theme is Harvest Dinner to highlight shelf stable items typically included on an autumn or harvest table. Think chili, soup, canned meats, instant mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, pasta, rice, canned pumpkin, cranberry sauce, beans and any other foods that help keep you warm on a chilly evening. The food collection will continue through the end of October as a way of supporting local families who are struggling to make ends meet. Place donations in the designated basket in the Narthex. Volunteers will deliver the food to the Food Pantry located in Town Hall. Thank you for your generosity!
7pm to 8 pmBible study can be challenging in part because the Bible was written in a different culture and time, and with a wide variety of literary genres. Poetry is heard differently than prose, or proverbs, and sometimes the assumptions about how to hear influences what we hear. Pastor Bill Pfohl will be offering a Sporadic Wednesday evening lecture/discussion series to address a central motif of the Bible. God working through people in order to save people. Learn more>>
