River of Life Church -
We're bringing CHURCH to YOU!


Church Family - we know that there is so much uncertainty in our world today, but we are THANKFUL that we can find joy in knowing and trusting in Christ. We can live our lives as Christ did - praying consistently, loving God, and serving others!

As we navigate the upcoming weeks, we will provide as much information as we can to you! Stay up to date with all that's happening at River of Life Church at riveroflifeag.org/coronavirus. At this time, we plan to offer ONLINE SERVICES on Sunday mornings, as well as Wednesday evenings at 7pm for our Adult Life Groups, River YTH students, and River Kids.

We're VERY EXCITED to be offering 4 ONLINE service times for you and your family! Tune in LIVE with us this weekend on Saturday, March 21st at 5pm, and March 22nd at 8am, 9:30am, and 11am. We're always looking for creative ways to SERVE you and CONNECT with our church family digitally!

Here's a few things to know....

1.) CONNECTION - We want to connect with you! We believe now, more than ever, connection is essential. Whether its your first time or your hundredth time, head on over to riveroflifeag.org/card and fill out  a connect card. If you have prayer requests, praise reports, or simply want to drop a "hello," we would love to have you fill out a card so we can get to know you better!

2.) GIVING - At River of Life, we recognize that we have an opportunity to GIVE back to God what has been given to us. While we cannot physically meet, we recognize that this can be difficult to give your weekly tithes. To make it easier on you, we've provided FOUR different ways for you to continue giving in this time.

  1. Mail in your Tithe to 22881 178th Ave, Cold Spring, MN 56320.
  2. Visit riveroflifeag.org/give and send your tithe in digitally.
  3. Download our app, River of Life Cold Spring, and set up an account to give through that.
  4. Text any dollar amount to 84321 to give.

3.) ONLINE SERVICES - We may sound like a broken record, but we want to make sure we spread the news!! We are providing ONLINE services for our Adults, River YTH, and River Kids on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.

03.14.20 We are moving online!

Church,

On Friday,  March 13th Governor Walz announced limitations on all gatherings of more than 250 in MN.  As a result, we have decided that we will be moving services online effective Sunday, March 15th. This is not an act of panic or fear, rather, it’s an act of care - both for the church and for others. For the health care system, for neighbors, and for the vulnerable. This is what it means to be for the common good and to “seek the peace of the city.”

What can we do during this time?

1.) Pray. We encourage families to pray together. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will HEAL THEIR LAND.”

2.) Let’s BE the church in this time! Reach out to your circle of influence and see how you can best serve them!! If you know of someone in need, lend a helping hand, a few dollars, or prayer. Even though we can’t gather as a large group, this is a perfect time to be with your family, neighbors, and friends online to be the Church together!

3.) Stay up to date with us. We will be daily updating you at riveroflifeag.org/coronavirus.

We will be providing ONLINE services for your entire family starting Sunday, March 15th. Check out Facebook or Instagram to view these services! We see this as an opportunity to activate as the body of Christ in a whole new way! Pick a service time and engage with it. You can watch us online at riveroflifeag.org/live, on our Facebook page “River of Life Church,” OR download our app (River of Life - Cold Spring).
