WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS FALL:

ROL SUNDAY MORNINGS

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 SUNDAY MORNING KIDS

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. 

ROL WEDNESDAY NIGHT FAMILY MINISTRIES

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.

GlobalFingerprints is the child sponsorship ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of America. We send children to school and help care for their physical, spiritual and emotional needs. All of this happens through the ministry of local churches around the world who want to see lives transformed.

When a child is sponsored, we commit to regularly assess their spiritual, nutritional, medical, and educational needs. We then use sponsorship funds to supplement these areas accordingly. This puts children on a path to escape the cycle of poverty. Physical needs are just a portion of what we aim to support because we believe each child’s relationship with Christ is their most vital need. That’s why we commit to serving sponsored children through the ministry of a local church.

For $35/month, you can be a part of life change for vulnerable children around the globe. In many cases, you’ll receive updates from your child and have the opportunity to respond. In this process, we believe child sponsorship will have an impact on your life too.

Visit the link above to learn more or sponsor a child, or simply text the word “sponsor” to 22999 and you will receive a link to view and sponsor children through your phone.

As a church, River of Life is focusing our efforts on children from Kolkata, India. We are in weekly contact with the Director and staff that work directly with our sponsored kids, so we can pray effectively. Please join us in focusing on reaching Kolkata!
