Outreach Programs

Ridgewood United Methodist Church members are active in a variety of Outreach Programs that benefit not only other church members, but the community as well.

Most of these positions are volunteer positions staffed by congregants who willingly and lovingly offer up their time to do something nice for someone else.

If you are interested in volunteering with any of these programs, please contact the church office for information at (440) 885-1360.

If you are in need of any of these services, please let us know and we will do our best to assist you.

Animal Blessings

Our pets are a blessing to us! We experience God’s love as we care for and receive care, from animals. Each first Saturday of October, we offer a blessing for our furry friends. Watch our website for dates & times.

Caring Dinner

The Ridgewood “Caring Dinner” will be held at 12:00noon on the following 2024 dates:

January 27, March 23, May 18, July 27, September 28 and December 7

.The dinner provides an atmosphere of fellowship and friendship.

  • It is FREE to all persons in our community.
  • We deliver meals to our shut-ins on this day.
  • The meals are cooked and served by church volunteers and are absolutely delicious every time!
  • Both the volunteers and dinner guests have a wonderful time sharing in each other’s company.
  • All of the excess food is taken to various non-profit groups immediately after the dinner.

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain consists of persons within our congregation who volunteer to add those in our church in need of prayer to their own daily prayers. If you or someone you know stands in the need of prayer, please contact the church office by calling (440) 885-1360. All prayer requests are treated as confidential and will only be shared with our prayer warriors and pastor, unless you request otherwise.

Ridgewood Friends

Ridgewood Friends is a group of church members who offer to donate time to help make life a bit easier for others in our church family. These volunteers offer help with rides, running errands, shopping, small chores, visitation, taking someone to the doctor, or bringing a meal to someone just home from the hospital. There is no minimum time commitment required, no meetings to attend, and new “Friends” are always welcome!

Visitation Volunteers

In an attempt to reach our shut-ins who still take an active interest in our church and would like someone from the church to visit them, the Outreach and Health Ministry committees have developed a volunteer visitation ministry. Training sessions for participants in this program are provided periodically – please call the church office if you are interested in attending training.
