Pastor Ed will be teaching the Next Steps class on October 29th following the worship service in the Fellowship Hall. You can sign up at the Information Center. If you are new to Stone Ridge, this would be a great way to learn more about what we believe. Here’s what is covered:
- Salvation - the most important step in your faith journey is making the decision to follow Jesus.
- Baptism - After taking the step of salvation, the next step for a follower of Jesus is baptism. In the act of baptism, a follower of Jesus is immersed in water and then lifted up out of the water.
- Small Groups - We desire for everyone who comes to Stone Ridge to not only participate in large group environments but also to be actively involved in smaller (community) groups. Relationships are a priority at Stone Ridge.
- Serving in our community is an important part of who we are at Stone Ridge. Our desire is to show the love of Christ to Decorah and Northeast Iowa by meeting the various needs of our community.
