Cultivating Prayer - Family
Praying together strengthens the bond of the marriage. Prayer is also a way to seek God’s wisdom together. As you pray and come to agreements on matters, that discipline then builds unity and strength in the marriage. And prayer is also where you can fight for your marriage together when the difficult days come. Start today by saying a simple prayer together.

Here is your opportunity to share with everyone, that you belong to Jesus. If you would like to be baptized during the February 16th service, please sign up at, on the Church Center app or at a kiosk next to the fireplace.

RiverBank Kids has opened a NEW classroom during second service. This class is for children kindergarten to 5th grade who attend first service children's church and would like a change of scenery for second service. Kids can enjoy growing friendships, playing games, and watching RightNow Media for kids. Parents, this is a great option for helping kids have fun while you attend service, Bible study, small group or serve.

What is it that can make prayer difficult to engage in?
Above all else, I am to become a praying person.
A.W. Tozer said,
“Thirsty hearts are those whose longings have been awakened by the touch of God within them.”
