Family Worship Today


We love children and youth here at RiverLife. We want them to be seen, heard, and valued. That’s why the WHOLE CHURCH worships together for the first part of service.

Then, about half-way through, we’ll dismiss them to join RiverKids and Thrive Youth Ministries downstairs for their own special time of learning about God.

Current Sermon Series

In this series, we look at the four people from the Bible and how their stories were transformed by encounters with Jesus.

Sermon Notes

Title: A Man Full of Pride (Week 3)
Passage: Philippians 3:1-11
Key Verse: “But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.” (Philippians 3:7)

Big Ideas:

  1. Your story reveals what you put your confidence in.

  2. The truth in your story refutes the lies in false teaching.

Prayer to put your confidence in Jesus Christ:
“Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God who died for me so that I can have a relationship with God now and live with him forever. Thank you for forgiving all the things that I have done that were not what God wanted. I put my confidence in you, and I give my life to you. I pray in your name. Amen, so let it be.”

Today’s Highlight

Turn your gently used stuff into:
• Food for the homeless
• Help for refugee families
• Support for pregnant moms

In three weeks, we will have rummage sale to raise money for our Community Engagement ministry partners. Drop your stuff off at church Thurs. 7/25 - Sat. 7/27.

The Benediction

Pastor Greg closes each service with God’s blessing for you from Numbers 6:22-26. As you go, receive these words…

May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.
