Iron sharpens iron

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another - Proverbs 27:17

As of February 2020, our multimedia efforts are being refreshed and relaunched under a new title - Iron sharpens iron. This title is inspired by the popular verse in Proverbs and is a reminder of our proper attitude in all of our studies - we are all more effective Bible students when everyone contributes. Our efforts will still be grounded in God's word and rich with Bible verses and references.

Our weekly bulletin has already relaunched with this new format, and our TV and radio efforts will relaunch within the next few weeks. We are still:

  • Mailing weekly bulletins to Bible students across the community
  • Sending out mail-based correspondence courses to eager learners
  • Broadcasting a weekly TV program at 9:30 a.m. on Fox 44
  • Hosting a weekly radio show on 98.5 FM (1400 AM)

Contact us at 812.550.6234 or info@riverridgechurch.org to sign up for the bulletin mailing list or the correspondence course. Please join us as we continue studying throughout 2020!

“Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”(Daily Reading, ESV)
