In our neighborhoods, Ridgeland Church believes we will see God's work shaping, forming, and growing each of us. In our neighborhoods, Ridgeland Church believes we will see Heaven breaking through. Transforming our lives, our communities, and yes, our spaces.

We believe that space matters. The spaces we inhabit as we live, work, and play in our neighborhoods have a profound effect on our lives, our relationships with others, and who we are. We are shaped and formed by the spaces we inhabit. We're molded by the locations, decorations, and intentionality behind the use of a space. Whether it's a long table filled with friends and family, a garden plot cultivated by caring hands, or a warm patch of grass out in the sun, the spaces we are shaped by the most are brought about through work, effort, and intentionality.

On February 4th, Pastor Jared announced the launch of our brand new Brick X Brick campaign in fulfillment of our vision to “Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known Until it is in our Neighborhoods as it is in Heaven.” Through this campaign, we are raising money to reimagine the courtyard in the center of our building and to support three global ministry partners:
Each of these partners is working towards a common goal: to create and foster spaces that provide the venue for God's kingdom to break through in a local context. In the Philippines, Shechem Children's Home is working to provide a shelter and rehabilitation center for children who have escaped cybersex trafficking. In Zambia, Copperbelt District is providing community schooling for hundreds of children in remote areas of the of the countryside who would otherwise have little opportunity for formal education. In Croatia, the Zagreb Ministry Center is seeking to establish a space to accommodate a growing faith community that serves one of the largest asylum-seeker population centers in Europe.

Their mission is much like our own: to engage their community where they're at and provide a space for Heaven to break through in their own neighborhoods. As we seek the same goal in our own community, we'll be working to re-imagine the courtyard space in the center of our facility. Once completed, the space will include a raised bed garden and a turf grass space with lighting and equipment that will allow it host events for our community, church, and Little Lights Academy.

Work on our courtyard will be carried out in distinct phases:
We are selling 300 paper bricks at $25 each and allocating $20 to courtyard work and $5 to these global ministry partners. As the project grows towards completion, we will begin to see paper bricks like these take over the hallways of Ridgeland Church as a new space is created Brick by Brick:
Will you partner with us to help create a space where heaven can break through in our community and around the world?
