Hi, welcome to Ridgewood.
I'm Pastor Molly.
I'm glad you found us! I hope I get to meet you in person soon.
(No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. I am female. And proudly Baptist. I'm real! You may have some questions about that, and I'd love to answer questions over coffee - my treat!)
I'm glad you've found your way here, I can't wait for you to meet more of the wonderful people of Ridgewood Baptist Church. But I have to warn you - we're different. The good kind of different.
You may notice our worship style. We're not traditional, but not contemporary either. We sit somewhere in between.
You might notice our leadership is (mostly) female. We welcome all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, races, and ages into leadership.
You may notice our people aren't all white, or straight. We welcome diversity.
You might notice some in suit jackets. You might notice some in t-shirts. We don't have a dress code.
I hope you'll notice our Communion table is open to whomever walks in the doors. Jesus showed us that no one is unworthy of grace, no matter your past and not reliant on your tomorrow.
We're intentional in what we teach. Because theology has hurt so many.
We're intentional in what we learn. Because we're all healing and re-learning what a God of Love, not judgment, means for our daily lives.
I'd love to learn about your journey here. I bet it's a unique one.
Grace + Peace,
