Fall Teaching Series: Engage
We are all relearning how to BE the Church. Worshipping, connecting, volunteering all look different. It can leave us feeling a bit disconnected and for some, discouraged. Over these next few weeks we will be talking about what it looks like to BE the church and how we can engage. We hope this series will be helpful and encouraging so we can embrace this important series of ministry together.

Are you a worker in the educational environment who has been dealing with new challenges at the beginning of the academic year? Are you finding that nothing is the same as it was in other years? Perhaps you are ready for a 30-minute space to RECHARGE
online spiritually with others involved in education. Beginning on Tuesday, September 29, at 8:30 p.m., and continuing for six weeks, you will have an opportunity to log in to Zoom with others involved in education for a brief check-in, devotional, and prayer. This is a place to relax and enjoy a little break from the busyness of the term, as facilitators (educators) from RiverCross Church guide these sessions. (There will be no homework involved with the event!) This time is set aside for teachers, principals, educational assistants, administrative staff, custodians, maintenance workers, community school coordinators, as well as faculty and staff in post-secondary institutions. Please register on the RiverCross Church website, so you will receive the Zoom link by e-mail.
Christmas Choir 2020
had its first meeting this past week with 40 people ready to help us celebrate Christ's birth this Christmas Season. Christmas Choir this year will be short and unique, but also fun and powerful as we try new and creative things and minister through these challenging times. If you would like to be part of Christmas Choir this year, please pick up your music and a practice CD from the church office and plan to attend our 3 rehearsals on September 30, October 7 and October 14, all at 7:30 pm here at RiverCross Church. Hope to see you there!
