On Sunday, July 29, Ridglea Presbyterian Church decommissioned the building at 6201 Camp Bowie Boulevard in preparation for a relocation to our new home at 5000 Southwest Boulevard sometime in 2019.
Until the renovations and additions to our new home are complete, we are worshiping and working at 4350 River Oaks Boulevard, home of the former John Knox Presbyterian Church.
Our Sunday morning schedule continues with Sunday School from 9:00-9:45 a.m. and worship at 10:00 a.m. For more, see our list of frequently asked questions.
Fort Worth, Texas – June 21, 2018 – After more than 75 years at the corner of Camp Bowie and Westridge, Ridglea Presbyterian Church is moving.
On Thursday, the church announced that it has purchased property at 5000 Southwest Blvd., site of the former Bethel United Methodist Church. In May, the church sold its existing property at 6201 Camp Bowie to MDJ Partners, a Fort Worth commercial real estate developer. The terms of both deals were undisclosed.
“Although moving is always hard, this is an incredible opportunity for us,” said Rev. Ryan Baer, the church’s pastor. “The new site is just two miles to the southwest, so we’re not leaving Ridglea. We’re going from a small lot with just eleven parking spaces to a site with over three acres of room, and we’re cutting our annual maintenance and utility costs by more than half. The move will enable us to do even more for the kingdom of God here in Fort Worth and beyond.”
The congregation will hold its final worship service at its Camp Bowie location on Sunday, July 29, at 10 a.m. Beginning Sunday, August 5, the congregation will be worshiping and working at 4350 River Oaks Boulevard while renovations are being made to the property on Southwest Boulevard.
“We’re busy renovating the new site and we’re excited about new opportunities for worship and work in Fort Worth,” said Rev. Baer.
Chartered in 1943, Ridglea Presbyterian Church is a member congregation of Grace Presbytery and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
