2019_February Happenings @ Riverside

Family Movie Night

The Children’s Ministry invites all children and their families and friends for our Family Outdoor Movie Night, Friday, February 1st, 7:00 p.m. in the Courtyard. We will be showing the movie “Letters to God.” FREE! The movie night will be in place of our Children in Action and Riverside Students on Friday, February 1st.

“Letters to God:” A young boy fighting cancer writes letters to God, touching lives in his neighborhood and community and inspiring hope among everyone he comes in contact. An unsuspecting substitute postman, with a troubled life of his own, becomes entangled in the boy's journey and his family by reading the letters. They inspire him to seek a better life for himself and his own son he's lost through his alcohol addiction.

Wellspring Couples Conference

The Couples Ministry invites all Married and Engaged Couples to a Wellspring Couples Conference on Friday, February 8th, and Saturday, February 9th. The conference, entitled “The Science and Art of Marriage,” will deal with Scientific research, Biblical foundation, and Practical methods. Friday, February 8th is from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and Saturday, February 9th from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Cost is $150 for couples, $100 for individuals.

MasterLife Discipleship Class

MasterLife is a discipleship study of four books (6 sessions each) that helps believers in Jesus to move toward spiritual maturity. It is appropriate for both new Christians and seasoned believers in Jesus Christ. In addition to gaining victory over areas of weakness, participants will be encouraged to master living in the Word, prayer, personal purity, witnessing, and other key disciplines of faith. The first book of this series will be the focus of our attention beginning on Thursday, February 28th through Thursday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m. in Room 205. The cost for the books is $10.00 each; due at the first class. So we can adequately prepare, please sign up at the table in the Foyer by Sunday, February 17th. Please join us in studying MasterLife 1: The Disciple’s Cross. Otto Fernandez will lead the class.
