Barn Bash
The River Church will be going to the Niederman Family Farm on Thursday, October 17 for a fun evening of connecting and letting the kids play. We have the barn reserved for our church so we can eat and hang out together. It will be a great way to celebrate all the good things God has done this past year.

There will be two meal times to choose from (5:30pm or 6:00pm) in order to accommodate more families. There is no cost for the meal. We will send you a reminder email a few days before the event to remind you of the time you picked.

We are also selling discounted wristbands to get into the farm if you want to take your family to enjoy a hayride, bonfire, corn maze, smores and all the other fun things the farm has to offer. The wristbands are only $5 per person ($12 at the gate). Children 2 years old and under are free.

FREE Digital Bible Study Resources

Cultivating Prayer: Individually
God’s delays are not God’s denials. Often we stop praying when we don’t see an answer, when in reality, that is the time that we should keep praying. Just because we are in a waiting season doesn’t mean God said “no.” His delay is for a purpose that you might not be able to see at the time.

The River Church has a Deacon Team in place to address the needs of people who are in the midst of difficult circumstances. We invite people to contact us, whether for yourself or for another person at the River.

Bruce Bugbee
“Spiritual gifts are divine abilities distributed by the Holy Spirit to every believer according to God’s design and grace for the common good of the body of Christ.”
God’s Spirit is revealed in me as I use my gift.
1. My gift was given for others.
The ability to understand God's perspective on life situations and share those insights in a simple, understandable way.
Perceiving and understanding the truth’s of the Bible, with insights into the mysteries of the Bible that cannot be known apart from revelation.
The divine enablement to trust God for what cannot be seen and to act on God’s promise, regardless of what the circumstances indicate.
The ability to pray in faith specifically for people who need physical, emotional, or spiritual healing and see God answer.
The ability to perform supernatural works that are contrary to the ordinary working and laws of nature.
The divine ability to publicly communicate God's word in an inspired way that convinces unbeliever and both challenges and comforts believers.
The special ability to recognize the presence of evil and sin, demonic spirits and lying spirits in false teachers.
The ability to speak or pray in an unlearned, living language—one that the speaker does not know.
The ability to translate an unlearned, known language expressed in the church.
3. My gift is empowered and entrusted by the Spirit.
