A Reminder Time changes this weekend!
We are looking forward to worshipping together on Sunday, whether you are worshipping online, in person, or at home as you phone in. If you would like to register to join us in person, Sunday at 10am you can call Marlee in the church office to register 642-8060. She can take calls from Wednesday to Friday 8am to 4 pm. Masks will be required to be worn for the entire service.
News & Updates
On Sunday, Pastor Rob will begin a new sermon series called Relationship Restart, looking at how by following God’s wisdom, all relationships will get stronger and become healthier. This practical series will help marriages, parenting, relationships with coworkers and other family members as well.
Christmas Outreach at RiverCross is now underway! We have an ambitious financial goal of $35,000. With the money we raise, we will be taking care of many people, well in excess of the 140 families, 30 youth, and 40 adults we usually help and encourage each Christmas season. We are also streamlining how we do all this, to comply with COVID protocols. We are using a limited number of volunteers selectively, to keep things safely manageable. And we are moving exclusively to giving out gift cards instead of packing Christmas gift and grocery bags. It's a different year, but our plan is to still act compassionately and generously in God's name. Thank you in advance for your financial support of this ministry.
Could your faith use some strengthening? Would you like to be part of a community? There are lots of new ways to connect at RiverCross this Fall, both in-person and online. Here are three new groups:
• 7 Challenges Men Face, online, Wednesdays at 7:30 pm facilitated by Jason Deering
• The Book of Isaiah, Ladies study, Thursdays at 9:45am at RiverCross Church, facilitated by Hasell Kerr
• God’s Big Picture: Bible Overview Course, a study for men: starting Thursday November 5th at 6:30pm (online or in-person)If you’re interested in finding out more please visit www.rivercrosschurch.ca/connect
We are starting a Conversational English group in November and are looking for both volunteers and participants. If you would like to improve your English skills by having a safe place to practise, or if you would like to volunteer to help someone strengthen their English skills by spending time reading and talking, fill out the form at the bottom of the page www.rivercrosschurch.ca/connect
The Fall Church Business Meeting will take place on Monday November 23rd at 7pm at RiverCross Church, in person. At this meeting the church will vote on our 2021 budget. A reminder that masks and physical distancing will be required for the whole meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like the information, please contact the church office.
We extend our condolences to Joy Kim, on the passing of her mother. May God grant you peace as you grieve this loss and know of the Lord’s comfort.
