#BetterTogether | SBC – North Ridge
Dear Scottsdale Bible Church friends and family,
Like many of you, I have been looking forward to the day when we would know with certainty whether North Ridge would become a campus of Scottsdale Bible Church. With gratitude, we are pleased to report that indeed the members of North Ridge have voted to move forward with the plans to merge our two churches. Of the North Ridge members who voted yesterday, 77% chose to approve the merger – God is good!
Pastor Mike Burnidge and I are both humbled by the bold and courageous step of faith that the members of North Ridge have taken, and feel deeply the responsibility we have to steward that decision as well as the transition over the next few months. Thank you for your part in praying and supporting your leadership by embracing the vision that our two churches can be “Better Together.” We are confident that we will look back at this moment thankful for what God chose to do in bringing us once again together for this next season of incredible ministry opportunity in North Scottsdale and Cave Creek!
It’s now time to join hands and walk together in the same direction so that our church can reach this community for Jesus like never before. We’ll have a lot to say in the coming weeks and months about the exciting plans ahead and your participation, but in the meantime, join us in praying that God would knit our two congregations together and further His plans to make us Better Together!
Pastor Mike shared some important news in this morning’s services. (If you missed it, the announcement –view it here.)
We’ve prepared a web page to share the vision of Better Together and answer your questions about our merger with Scottsdale Bible Church announced today. northridge.org/bettertogether
Hear from Pastor Mike and Pastor Jamie Rasmussen from Scottsdale Bible Church about today’s Better Together announcement and their excitement for how God brought this vision before our two churches. #BetterTogether
Message from Pastor Mike
In December I came across a great quote by Steve Maraboli which says… “Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you.” Maraboli suggests that from God’s point of view, a Mercy Christmas is more important than a Merry Christmas. The Bible agrees with that and tells us that God is “rich in mercy” (Ephesians 2:4) and wants us to make mercy a priority. Read More
