Strengthening People For Life

More than a motto, strengthening people for life, is a lifestyle for the people of HighRidge Church. Birthed out of a desire to see people encouraged and living the life they were designed to live, Jeff Klingenberg started HighRidge nearly 10 years ago. The church has grown to an average attendance of over 1800 people each weekend with four service times. This year, HighRidge wants to welcome you to their annual Easter Weekend. The weekend will include a photo booth for families and friends to have their photo taken by a professional photographer completely free as their gift to you. For the kids, the weekend will include a massive egg hunt after each service on their beautiful property located down the road from the new Benbrook Middle-High School.  If you could use some strength and encouragement this Easter season, then stop by HighRidge for one of their five Easter services. For this special celebration, they will have two services on Saturday, April 15 (4:30pm and 6:00pm) and three services on Sunday, April 16 (9:00am, 10:30am and 12:00pm). For more information, you can go to highridgechurch.com.

William Campbell Contemporary Art

Bill and Pam Campbell have become an integral part of the Texas art scene. They have dealt with some of the most important artists of the day, as well as some of the most promising ones that have come to their notice. Many of the latter have become the former. The years have brought an ever-widening circle of involvements in the art world, as well as a life beyond anything ever expected. “We still get excited about seeing a great work of art for the first time and feel tremendous joy every time our efforts bear fruit on behalf of an artist.” The Campbells’ community involvement has included leadership roles and behind-the-scenes support of worthwhile activities. Their deepest satisfaction has been in connecting several generations of artists and collectors with one another, within the gallery and beyond to the national and international level. “Watching and being a part of artists’ thriving careers has been exceedingly rewarding!” 4935 Byers Avenue Fort Worth, TX 76107
