WELCOME TO RIVER OF LIFE SUNDAY MORNINGS!
We hope you feel at home with us. Our services are held at River of Life Church at 9 & 10:45 AM. We also have an online service that is livestreamed 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:
- Is there someone that you are concerned about spending eternity in hell? Share with your small group who that person is and what that is like to think of them suffering for eternity.
- Is there someone that could be in heaven that would surprise you? Why are you surprised that God would show grace to them?
- Where do you believe you will spend eternity? Why? How does that make you feel?
- Share with your small group your reaction to Dave’s description of our journey to heaven or hell.
- Spend time in prayer for the salvation of those who have not yet experienced it.
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS FALL:
Our service times are at 9 & 10:45 AM every Sunday morning! Kids programming is available only at the 9 AM service at this time.
ROL Kids programming is currently available at the 9 AM service. Got kiddos and want to come to the later service? No problem! They are more than welcome to sit with you during service and we will provide a busy-bag filled with reading, coloring and craft activities for them to focus on.
We invite all students, pre-K thru grade 12, to join us every Wednesday starting at 6:30 PM for service! Grades 6-12 are welcome to hangout at 5:45 PM before service.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
Shoeboxes will be available at church in the foyer starting on November 1 and collection dates at the church will be November 16-23 if you would like to build a box yourself. Otherwise, with just a few clicks, you can pack an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift online to help share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a boy or girl in need around the world. Simply select toys and other fun items you’d like to include from the online collection, and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo. They’ll pack the gift for you and send it on its way for a suggested donation of just $25.
Visit www.samaritanspurse.org/buildonline to build a box online.
