Serve – Part One: Join in the Journey


12.06.2017 | by Patrick Voelker, Executive Administrator

Here at River of Life we are striving to allow anyone (and everyone who wants) to engage in a journey.  A journey of faith.  A journey of understanding meaning to their life. A journey of knowing God.  And what a journey it is and can be!

We believe the journey is assisted by being able to see a path, a path you can follow.  It’s like climbing a fourteener.  Oh, some of you are asking what is that?  A fourteener is a description for any mountain that is over 14,000 feet high.  There are 96 fourteeners in the United States, 53 in Colorado, 29 in Alaska, 13 in California, and 1 in Washington.

I have climbed several fourteeners in Colorado and many times there are easier routes to the top with a well-marked path, but sometimes I have gone up a different route, say the backside, where there wasn’t much of trail.  On one climb, we lost the trail and spent more than an hour trying to get back on track, but it wasn’t easy, and the ascent without a trail was much more difficult, even a bit scary.


Having a path is a good thing.  Our path at River of Life is Discover Jesus; Connect to Others; Serve the Community; and Give Financially.  This path helps us see the journey and progress more easily.  We are always inviting you to join in on the journey.  Our journey of faith is made easier when we have a path to follow.
