New Teaching Series
This Sunday we start a new teaching series called, Reclaim.  In the last year, many areas of our lives, have been disrupted and have lost their purpose.  Parts of our lives that used to be a source of joy have been impacted.  So, we want to take time to talk about these areas of our lives and offer practical suggestions as to how we can reclaim them.  This Sunday we will talk about reclaiming friendships. 

 
One Conference (an event for Middle and High School youth) is a go for Friday, May 21, 2021 at 6:30 pm! Although it is virtual this year, we at RiverCross will be hosting a watch party, complete with awesome snacks, games, and prizes. There will be a cap of 60 youth at this event, however, if you are unable (or uncomfortable) joining us at the church, you can also register your own at-home watch party (consisting of your family, or a group of your steady 15), and connect to our party at the church via Zoom. We will provide you with a One Con Kit full of snacks and everything else you will need to participate with us from home. Registration will close on Thursday, May 20th, so claim your spot early, OR let us know about your at-home watch party! We can't wait to share this event with you! Go to www.rivercrosschurch.ca/connect to register.

Online RiverCross Book Club reading of "Relentless” by Michele Cushatt
Facilitated by Corinne MacDonald and Cynthia Shaw
Started Sunday, May 2nd at 7:00 pm
Ladies, have you ever wondered where is God when life is filled with so much suffering? How can I be sure of God's presence and affection, even in my pain? Can you believe in God and still wrestle with questions and doubt? These are the questions honestly explored in the book, Relentless. By sharing her own transformative journey, Michele Cushatt invites us to search for divine presence in our everyday stories. Woven throughout Scripture sits a single, extraordinary theme: God is with us. Ours is a God who speaks through burning bushes and leads through pillars of fire, who responds to a broken world by giving himself. We invite you to read along with us Michele Cushatt’s transformative journey where she shares her honest struggles, experiences and questions, so you know you’re not alone in yours. Share your stories as we share ours and learn to lean on each other to grow our faith during tough times
