Join us for a night of fun with a New Orleans style dinner with a Mardi Gras Theme. There will be an alternative food choice if Cajun isn’t your thing! Come and bid in either our silent or live desert auction. Cost is $12.00 for Adults and $6 for children under the age of 10.  There will be no childcare available for this event. You may sign-up and pay online at ringgoldumc.org/sign-up. Included in that sign-up is an option to volunteer to bring a dessert or silent auction item. All proceeds go to funding June 2017 Nicaragua Community Mission trip projects.

On Ash Wednesday we humble ourselves before God at the onset of Lent, a 40 day season of Christian devotion leading up to Easter Sunday. Are you awake to God’s presence in your life? Come. Find humility. Cease sleep walking. Be awakened to God’s Presence.
Join a blended worship service with choir and acoustic band as we begin this season together. Childcare for nursery/preschool available. Older children invited to attend. Dinner starts at 5:45 – $5 adults/$3 kids. There is no sign up needed. No small groups in lieu of Ash Wednesday worship.

Message Series

Have you ever stopped to consider, “What Does God Want?” Most of us probably have wondered what God thinks about the things we do. As a church, we have diligently been asking this question over the past year as we consider what God would want from each of us personally and collectively as a church. We invite you to join in as we dig deep into this question as the central focus of our new message series: “WHAT DOES GOD WANT?”

Five Sermon Topics:

  • Love All
  • Grow Faith
  • ShareJesus
  • Impact the World
  • Go All In
