WELCOME TO ROL SUMMER SUNDAY MORNINGS!

Welcome to River of Life! We hope you feel at home with us. Our summer services are held outside at River of Life Church at 10 a.m. We also have an online service that is streamed at 10 a.m. and available online afterward. Our services last about an hour and include a time of worship and teaching from the Bible.

Our Bulletins are interactive: click on a title to see more.


SMELLING SALT: WEEK 12

  1. Respond together to the quote: “The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed.” Do you think this is true?

  2. How do you reconcile the harsh language of the Bible around wealth with the life that you have been given?

  3. How have you seen wealth/things threaten to consume your life? Have you found victory over that? If so, what did you do?

  4. How do you imagine God will bring about justice for those who have been wronged? And when do you think that justice will come?

  5. When and how does God show grace to the rich?


ROL ANNUAL MEETING

River of Life’s Annual meeting has been delayed to Sunday, August 16 immediately following service. We encourage all congregants to come to the meeting to stay informed, but you must be a member in order to vote on any issues for the next fiscal year or nominated overseers for the next term. If you would like a copy of our proposed budget for the next fiscal year, you may request one by emailing our office staff at rol@rolchurch.net.

ROL 2020 FALL KICKOFF

Save the date! Sunday, September 13, we will be celebrating our annual Fall Kickoff with Baptisms & B.B.Q. immediately following service. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon and make sure to mark your calendar!

DAVE’S DAILY DEVOS

During this time with all the negative news, we could all use a little encouragement, so Mon-Thurs we’re committed to have something positive for you to listen to! Drop in for Facebook Live at 9 a.m. or YouTube at lunchtime.

NOON PRAYER TIME

Church, we are asking you to set an alarm and pray everyday at noon. Pray for however long you’re able. The important part is we cry out to God everyday, as one voice, at the noon hour for God’s ways to be set loose in our church, families, leaders, city, state, nation and world. And for the Church around the world to be revived by God; to be His hands and feet!
Some of the particular things that we can pray for as a church this week are:

  • REVIVAL! We want to see a Body of Christ that is growing and ON FIRE for the Kingdom of God! (This is a great time to pray for specific people you know who don’t know Jesus yet, and to ask Holy Spirit to lead you in conversation with them.)
  • Unity in our cities, state, nation, and world.
  • Godly justice for numerous injustices around the world, and a closing gap in racial divides.
  • Peace, especially in the Body of Christ, but also for our leaders and communities.
  • Wisdom, discernment and protection for our first responders, military, law enforcement officers, fire fighters, doctors, nurses and elected officials.
