New Women's Study
What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it. Lysa TerKeurst takes us to the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before. Join us for this new women's study starting Wednesday, March 6 in the evenings. You can sign up online at https://hittheriver.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/203760.

Get Connected
GroupLink is a 90-minute event that takes place on Saturday, March 9 at 4:00pm, where you meet people in a similar stage of life & area of town with the goal of forming a Community Group. We will have people there to help you navigate the process of meeting others and forming a group.

When you register to attend GroupLink, we’ll ask you some questions to help us match you with an initial connection comprised of people who have similar group preferences. If the logistics of this group work for you, great! If they don’t work for you, we will help you find a different group. We don’t assign you to a group. You come to GroupLink to meet others & decide which group you would like to join. Sign up at https://hittheriver.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/205642

Angels Among Us
There are times in life when we can be in a situation where a meal would be a blessing, such as after giving birth or when dealing with a medical situation. Through our Angels Among Us ministry, you can help people within our church by bringing them a meal. To join, send an email to info@HitTheRiver.com letting us know you’d like to be part of this ministry. When a need arises, you will receive an email asking if you can sign up to bring a meal. If you are in a situation where you could be blessed by a meal, please email us at info@HitTheRiver.com.
I will boldly make my defense for following Jesus!
