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. Talk with each other about a time when you had a prayer that God wasn’t answering in the way that you were hoping. What were you feeling? What were you thinking? What was happening with your faith?
  2. Of the various reasons for unanswered prayer that John mentioned, which of them are most comforting to you? Why? (God has a bigger perspective, bigger plan or bigger purpose?)
  3. Is there another way that you have found to make sense of unanswered prayer? Share with each other.
  4. What prayers are you praying right now that have yet to be answered? Spend some time in prayer together lifting these requests up to God.
