ONGOING MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
Sunday School: A time of fellowship, worship, and the study of God's Word from 9:45-10:40am. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word of God, so the Scriptures are at the forefront of all our teaching. Students are placed in classes based on the grade they are in. Here is what High School students are studying:
- 9th-10th Grade: 1 Peter led by Moose Pierce, Joe Eskridge, and Brad Weaver:Peter’s audience was waiting for the return of Jesus. Perhaps they were beginning to wonder if He would even come back at all. As persecution ramped up, they likely were thinking, “Did we get this wrong? Is this all worth it?” How were they supposed to live as the church of Christ in a time such as that? Peter writes to these Christians to give them grounding, hope, and direction in the midst of hard and uncertain times. Much of 1 Peter is guidance about how to live in such a hostile environment.
- 11th-12th Grade: Gospel Centered Life led by Shane and Laura Whelan:How can ordinary Christians live the truly extraordinary life that God calls us to? By focusing our attention on the grace of God shown to us in the gospel, everyday problems and experiences like these, familiar to Christians everywhere, can be transformed as the cross of Christ becomes the motive and measure of everything we do.
Sunday Night Live: SNL takes place during the school year and is a relational time of snacks, fun, and games. We believe the Holy Spirit changes people through the Word and relationships, so please come and enjoy spending time with each other. Please contact Shane Whelan for the schedule or you can view the church calendar.
Rivermont Fellowship Night: 7th-12th Grade students will be divided into small groups that consist of six to eight students and two adult leaders. This Fall each group will study the book of 1 Thessalonians, which covers a wide range of themes in only five short chapters: election, friendship, Satan, sex, love, work, and death, just to name a few. Yet perhaps its most dominant theme is the end times—specifically, the second coming of Jesus. As his redeemed people, Christians ought to live lives of holiness and love as we anticipate that final day. RFN meets each Wednesday night through November 16. Dinner is at 5:45pm in the Fellowship Hall and Small Group Bible study begins at 6:30pm.
626: A time for high school students to be encouraged and connect during the school year from 6:26-7:06am See the church calendar for exact dates.
