Thanks for joining us today at Riv! Check out the links above to stay connected with what’s going on.
At Riv, we invite everyone to know and enjoy Jesus as we stumble together in our pursuit to love like Him.
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. Every branch in me that does not produce fruit he removes, and he prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without me. If anyone does not remain in me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be my disciples. “As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commands you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. “I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. “This is my command: Love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this: to lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants anymore, because a servant doesn’t know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me, but I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will give you. “This is what I command you: Love one another.
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
Safe Families for Children is a great way for the church to step in and meet a very tangible need in our community. There are varying levels of involvement, whether that’s housing kids during a crisis period in these families lives, coming alongside a family with coaching, or resources, or being available to serve and care for families.
