We will be collecting items to fill shoeboxes until November 17 – you can bring in individual items or items bought in bulk and drop them in the bins located by the portico entrance or the RS kids area.
Then on the 17 immediately following the service, we will have a church wide packing party where we will pack and pray over the shoeboxes.
On November 18 – Operation Christmas Child’s nation wide collection week begins and this year RS is a drop off location for our community. You can sign up to work during the drop off hours as we greet people from our community and have opportunities to pray not only over their shoeboxes but over them as well. You can also pack a shoebox as a family or as a small group.
For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or come by the table after service on Sundays.
If you are ready to publicly proclaim your faith, we invite you to be baptized during our service on December 1, 2019. Please click the button below to sign up by November 24.
On Thursday, December 5 from 7-8pm, RiverStone will host our last Night of Healing Prayer for 2019. This is an opportunity to encounter God through contemplative worship, prophetic arts, and healing prayer. The atmosphere is safe, loving, and confidential. We pray for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of people. Come and experience God’s blessing, rest, and encouragement. Childcare is provided free of charge.
