Both Sunday Morning Services

River Valley Newsletter May 16th, 2019

On Sunday we looked at 1 John 2:15-16 as we continued our sermon series “Growing in Godliness”. Since we are God’s treasured possession, we are to look very different from the world. We are to treasure Christ above everything else. The tragedy of our day is there is very little difference between the world and the church. In our desire to be accepted by the world, the church has exchanged holiness for worldliness and then we have foolishly turned around and congratulated ourselves for a job well done because the world comes through our doors and feels at home.

We hope to see you this Sunday. Bring your Bible and a friend and we'll see you there!

Mother's Day Prayer

On Sunday we prayed together over the women of River Valley. It was an encouraging time of praying for moms in varying stages of life – for women who long to be moms and for moms who have grown children; for those who are in the midst of raising kids and for moms who have lost children. We hope this prayer continues to bless you as you remember God’s faithfulness to us.
