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 firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the bulletin mailing list or the correspondence course. Please join us as we continue studying throughout 2020!

Continuing our evangelistic efforts
As many know, our longtime evangelist Chuck Bartlett has amicably left his position at River Ridge after 11 years to work with a congregation near St. Louis, Missouri. We wish Chuck and his wife Debbie well in their new endeavor - they were both strong Christians and good friends to many during their time in Indiana.
With that said, rest assured that the evangelistic work of this congregation continues (Acts 8:4):
Preaching and teaching: Our normal schedule of classes and services will continue at River Ridge. They will primarily be taught by our members, though area preachers may also participate from time to time.
Bulletin: The weekly bulletin will continue to be printed and mailed. It will feature a mix of older articles and new ones.
Television program: The weekly TV program will continue to air. Chuck has provided the station with enough programs to get through March 2020.
Radio program: We are currently negotiating with WEOA over the future of the radio program and will make an announcement shortly.
We appreciate your patience over the next few weeks and invite you to see that the gospel is still being boldly proclaimed (Acts 28:31).

“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.”(Daily Reading, ESV)
