Worship Service Registration
Services on site have resumed, and we are so excited to be back with you! Please go to hittheriver.com, under the events tab, and register for the service you would like to attend. We are offering 2 service times at 9:45 a.m., and 11:15 a.m. If you would rather watch online, both services will be streaming live at facebook.com/hittheriver and on our website at HitTheRiver.com.
Reopening RBK- Toddler and Preschool
Starting TODAY RiverBank Kids is piloting the reopening of toddler and preschool Sunday School rooms during our 9:45 a.m. worship service. Toddlers are any child 18 months through 2 years of age, and our preschool room will serve our 3, 4, and 5-year-olds. Distance will be in place to the best of our ability, with masks being required for preschoolers and any child in K-5. A detailed reopening plan with more information will be sent out to families the first of the week with more information, but if you have any questions, contact Taylor Starr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RiverBank Kids- Virtual Sunday School
Did you know? RiverBank Kids offers a virtual Sunday School option for families unable or choose to attend on-campus services at The River. Virtual Sunday School (for kindergarten-5th graders) is hosted on Zoom at 10a.m. every Sunday and is overseen by passionate RBK teachers who love connecting with remote families. The link and password needed to attend virtual Sunday School is sent in the weekly RBK newsletter on Sunday mornings. If you’d like to receive this newsletter, contact Taylor Starr at email@example.com.
RiverBank Kids- 9:45 a.m. service
We have reopened children’s ministry for K-5 students during the 9:45 a.m. service (ONLY). While we would love to welcome all kids, we are working around several limitations at this time: COVID-19 concern, and limited volunteers. Please consider volunteering to serve in our children’s ministry. Things will look a bit different. Here is what to expect:
· Registration will be required, and space will be limited. Register your family each week at hittheriver.com
· Your family will check-in together for service.
· At check-in, kids will be given preprinted name tags and parent tags. Kids will also have their temperature checked.
· Kids will remain with their family until the middle of worship (music) and will be dismissed to the lobby where they will be greeted by the RiverBank Kids team.
· Kids will be required to wear a mask and will be socially distanced in the classroom. We will be using what was the toddler room until the elementary space is made available downstairs.
· Kids will enjoy a socially distanced lesson, craft, and game. If time and weather permits, we will take the kids outside (behind the building) to play (masks may be removed for outdoor play).
· We will Zoom with families at home during the teaching portion of our time together. The Zoom link will be in your weekly RBKids email. Also, curriculum links will still be emailed to families every Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m., so that kids can enjoy the same lesson content that we will be offering at church.
Worship Team Auditions
Do you love to sing or play an instrument? We will be hosting an open audition for our worship team on Saturday, March 6th from 11am-12:30p.m. Email Pastor Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
Learn about The River Church’s beliefs, values, mission and strategy through this two-hour class taught by Pastor Brad. On Monday, March 8th, River 101 will be presented as an online class (via Zoom) for anyone who would like to attend. The class will be from 6:15 – 8:30 p.m. While the class is required for membership, it’s also a great way to learn more about The River and meet others who are new as well!
FREE Digital Bible Study Resources
One of our goals here is to provide everyone who attends The River with discipleship resources, which is why we’re giving all of our attendees access to RightNow Media for FREE! If you have not already signed up, you can easily get access by texting “RightNow HitTheRiver” to 41411.
Cultivating Prayer- Church
This month our prayer focus is Here’s a prayer you can pray for our church’s leadership.
Almighty God, I come before You on behalf of our pastors and church leaders. Please crush any weapon formed against them. God, we pray that You will grant our leaders the spirit of Solomon so that they may have sound wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Lead them with the Holy Spirit. Counsel our pastors and church leaders so that they may do Your work and lead Your people. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
(Is. 54:17; 2 Chron. 1:10)
