We’d like to buy you lunch and get to know you better as you get to know us. We periodically hold a “Get to know you” class that will let you discover a little more about who we are as a church. It’s a great way to ask your questions and to better know our leaders and see if River of Life might be a potential fit for you.
We’re glad you’re thinking about baptism. It’s an important step for a new follower of Jesus Christ. Baptism doesn’t do anything to save a person. Neither does it help wash away their sins. Instead, it’s a way of telling the world you are an unashamed follower of Jesus Christ. If you’d like to be considered for baptism, let your interest be known to one of our leaders and they’ll follow up with you.
Most churches have small groups and River of Life is no exception. Our Life Groups meet mostly in homes and are a great time of friendship and growing together. We mostly follow the Sunday morning teaching series in order to really focus on applying the truths of the Bible to our lives. Our groups also pray together and serve others together in addition to participating in fun activities throughout the year.
Church and Community:
Because we value our neighborhoods and other communities, we like to be involved in practical ways. Our families are also personally involved in a variety of ways to better their communities.
Here is a sample of local organizations we've helped:
Circle of Champs
Compassion in Action
GPD National Night Out
It's important to us that children form positive spiritual friendships outside of the regular Sunday mornings. We sponsor activities at different times during the year. These may include a sledding party at Tawasentha Park, picnics, sports, etc. We also usually tackle a community service project or two so the children learn how to care for the needs of others. This is a great way to teach children to live and serve like Jesus and it's fun to do it together!
