RCC Weekly Update 05/27/21
A Message from Pastor Jerry
Scientists tell us the human body sends 11 million bits of information per second to the brain for processing, yet the conscious mind seems to be able to process only 50 bits per second. Maybe that explains my absolute inability to hear what people are saying when I’m intently focused on some kind of task!
Unfortunately, we can use up a significant amount of that bandwidth tending to our own internal agendas. Perhaps that tendency prompted the overwhelming number of Proverbs warning against that very thing. If we’re to really live out “relational maturity,” we need to love as Jesus loves. And that includes being “mindful” of those around us, just as Jesus was.
This Sunday, we’ll continue our search for deeper relational life as we look at the “mindfulness” of Jesus.
Have a great week!
Hey Kids! There will be no Ridge Kids class this week. But Ms. Heather has fun goodies bags prepared just for you! See you on Sunday! 😊
Everyone is welcome to post on Faithlife!
"But how, exactly, do I do that??" you might be asking.
Sharing a photo on Faithlife is very similar to sharing a photo via email, text, WhatsApp, etc.
Simply go to your photo app on your phone and select the photo you would like to share. Once you select the photo to share, you will be given several options: text, email, Instagram, etc... If you have the Faithlife app on your phone, one of those options will be Faithlife. Select this Faithlife option. This will open a small box where you can type a message to go with your photo. You will notice at the bottom a place where you can choose whether you would like to share your photo to your personal "My Faithlife" page, or "The Ridge Community Church" main newsfeed. Once you have added your message, and selected where you want it to show up, simply click "Post."
If you are on your computer, when you log in to Faithlife you will see, at the very top, a box that says "Post to My Faithlife." You can type whatever you would like into this box. As you type your post, you will notice an additional little blue box has appeared underneath, which says "+ Add Media." You can click this box to add a photo.
You will want to make a point to notice, at the top of your post there are two options: "To:" and "For:"
- "To:" You can select for your post to be posted only to your personal "My Faithlife" page. In this case, your post will not show up on the main Ridge Community Church newsfeed. But rather, your post will only show up on everyone's personal "My Faithlife" newsfeeds.
- "To:" You can select for your post to be posted to "The Ridge Community Church." In this case, your post will show up on our church's main homepage newsfeed.
- "For:" If you select "Public" ... anyone in the broader Faithlife community will be able to see your post.
- "For:" If you select "My Groups" ... only those private members of our Ridge Community Church group will be able to see your post.
