COVID-19 Financial Assistance Fund

Donate to the COVID-19 Fund

Thank you so much for contributing to our designated COVID-19 Fund. Your gift will help support people and families in our church community who are struggling financially.

Please continue to give as normal to our general fund. By keeping our general church finances strong, we will be more able to help one another and weather this storm together. Our intention is for COVID-19 Fund gifts to be in addition to normal giving.

Our pastoral staff will prayerfully and thoughtfully distribute these funds to those in need within our community. Please let us know if you have any questions, or know of any needs about which you’d like to make us aware.

To make a donation to the fund:

  • Click on the button above and in the drop-down menu under Giving Type, select COVID-19 Financial Assistance Fund
  • Send checks–with “COVID-19 Fund” in the memo line–to Diane Bush, Cedar Ridge Community Church, 2410 Spencerville Rd, Spencerville, MD 20868

We are aware of the enormous financial burden that COVID-19 is having on members of our community, and we are taking steps to provide assistance where it’s needed most.

FROM I-95: Take Route 198 West to Burtonsville (I-95 exit #33B). Continue west across Route 29. Go 2 miles past Route 29. Cedar Ridge will be on your right.

FROM THE WASHINGTON BELTWAY:Take Colesville Road/Rt.29 North toward White Oak. Continue on Route 29 for about 9 miles. You will pass the White Oak Shopping Center (on the right), the Bell Atlantic complex (on the left), Fairland Road, Briggs Chaney, and Greencastle Road. (Watch signs carefully – there is presently construction on Route 29.) Watch for the signs showing an exit-only lane to the right leading you to Route 198.  Take that exit, and at the light at the end of the ramp, you will take a left onto Route 198. Go 2 miles. Cedar Ridge is on the right.

If you visit with children, please stop by the Cedar Ridge Kids’ table which is located to your left as you enter the building. Most Sundays, younger children (infant through 5th grade) can attend an age-appropriate program while adults are in the service.

You can register at the table where you and your child will receive a nametag and a temporary identification number. We will notify you if you are needed during the service with a number which will appear on a monitor above the projection screens. A volunteer at the Children’s Ministry Table will let you know what need your child has. When you pick up your child after church, you may turn in your number.

Children of all ages are also always welcome in our main service. If your pre-schooler will be joining you in the service, you may borrow a ‘Big Church Bag’ with some quiet toys and activities. The bags are handed out at the Cedar Ridge Kids' table.  Our service allows time for moving around, as well as being still, and sitting on the floor or stretching your legs around the room are encouraged!

We welcome your middle or high school student to visit us too! Middle and High School Groups meet in the barn which is located on the right as you approach the main building.

Middle School is comprised of 6th-8th graders and meets on the lower level of the barn. High School meets in the upper level of the barn. Both groups meet for the entire service. Students and parents can agree on where they wish to meet after the service–either in the barn or main building.
