WELCOME TO ROL SUNDAY MORNINGS!

Welcome to River of Life! We hope you feel at home with us. Our 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.


SERMON QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

  1. When you hear someone say they “heard God speak,” what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Have you had negative experiences around this? Positive ones?
  2. Share with the group a time – if any – when you “heard God speak” to you.
  3. Why don’t more followers of Jesus hear the voice of God? What preexisting beliefs about God stand in their way? In your way?
  4. Have you moved from faith IN Jesus to having the faith OF Jesus?
  5. Which step will you take toward hearing the voice of God: desiring to know Jesus, eliminating distractions or doing what God tells you to do?
