Meet Pastor Drew and his Family:
We believe in the Church as the hope of the world. So do the people I am privileged to serve with at Sandy Ridge. While we are a small membership church, we have a big heart especially for people who are recovering from all kinds of sins. We have ministries for people of all ages, but we are particularly called to minister to those who are battling addiction. We believe it is precisely because we are small enough to be a family, but big enough to care that has given us the ability to receive broken people into loving arms. We know this because as sinners we have been broken, too. But know this, God's love is bigger than any brokenness you might have. Jesus died for us "while we were yet sinners and this proves His love for us." (Romans 5:8).
If you would like to know more about the specific ministries God has called us to at Sandy Ridge, your best course of action is to come and worship with us on Sunday where you can join the rest of us who are recovering sinners. There you will see a very open worship service with lots of praise music, prayer, and teaching of God's Word. We guarantee that when you come, you will not leave empty! Give us a try. What are you waiting for? We'll be waiting for you!
