New Message Series
Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is able to do abundantly more than anything we can ask or even imagine, and He accomplishes these things through us “according to His power that is AT WORK WITH US . . . “
How do we receive that kind of power? The answer is, The Holy Spirit: God’s presence within every Follower of Jesus Christ and the power within the Church. Join us throughout the month of October as we explore the Control, Presence, Power and Glory of the Holy Spirit in our message series, Greater is He.
BuckUp Ministry Spotlight
October 6 & 13 Spotlight Ministry
Our BuckUp Mission Spotlight for the first two weeks of October is Samaritan’s Purse: Hurricane Dorian fund. Immediately after Dorian passed and left a devastating wake of destruction behind her, Samaritan’s Purse set up a 40 bed emergency field hospital capable of treating more than 100 patients a day.
You can also give directly to Samaritan’s Purse.
October 20 - November Spotlight Ministry
Gifts from the Heart Christmas Shop is a unique partnership between nine local nonprofit organizations. During the Christmas season, parents and guardians of children served by these nine organizations are offered the opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts for their children at a greatly reduced and affordable cost at our shop. Each gift purchased is, in essence, two gifts—a gift for the child and the gift of joy and an affirmation of dignity for the parent.
If everyone attending our worship services contributes just $1.00 a week, we will be able to bless this ministry with more than $1,000.00. The collection box is located in front of the Tech Booth. Please make checks payable to River Run Christian Church.
