Both Sunday Morning Services

River Valley Newsletter April 18th, 2019

We hope you were with us on Sunday as we continued our short sermon series entitled “Sent by Jesus.” Returning again to John 4, Pastor Mark explained Jesus’ sovereign power in the timing and circumstances of his encounter with the Samaritan woman and the way in which this encounter transformed her life and story. Jesus exercises that same sovereign and transformative power in the lives of every person who encounters him, including you.
 We hope to see you this Sunday. Bring your Bible and a friend and we'll see you there!
