personal text message record

In the last two days I hit my personal text messaging record! Feels like a proud event...if you are 16 years old:-) The official text messaging madness has begun at Ridge Church and you too can join in! We are starting a brand new series this weekend called "text." Our goal was to get everyone involved in getting the message out by sending a text invite to at least ten friends to join you at either 9:30am or 11am service this week at Ridge.

A group of Ridge Volunteers traveled together to Atlanta this week for a conference called Drive. I literally started the "buzz" (pun intended) for our new series in the middle of the last session. I texted every one in our group an invite to the series at the same time and it was like watching dominos fall. Each of them in rhythm all reaching for and digging for phones. Then in unison all of them turning and shaking their heads at me (the fearless and in that moment slightly immature leader). It was pretty funny though...and it worked as you can see in the pictures.

So join the madness. Maybe you will hit your text message record too. You too can have a proud day of records and accomplishment. And for goodness sake--Please get your teenagers involved in this. If they participate it will definitely be our highest attended Sunday ever! Start your texting.
