God created us for them. He gave each of us the desire to grow in our relationship with the Lord and with other believers. And that’s why River of Life values connection and provides ministries for each person to find their place and get connected.
Nursery Ministry: Nursery (birth - 2yrs) & Lil' Ripples (3yrs - 5yrs)
Our Nursery Ministry ministers to the babies and toddlers each Sunday during our Worship Service and other church events throughout the year. The Nursery Ministry serves the families of River of Life by allowing parents to be able to be in service and focus on whatever the Lord has for them, while their children are shown the Love of God and given a solid foundation as they learn about the Lord at The River.
Children’s Ministries: Ripples (6yrs - 2nd grade) & Current (3rd - 5th grade)
Our Children’s Ministry ministers to children 6yrs old through Fifth Grade during our Sunday Worship Service. Our Children’s Ministry teaches children about the Lord weekly and invests in God’s kingdom by making an impact on the children’s spiritual lives and the foundation for their walk with the Lord. We provide two classes during our Sunday service, one for 6yrs. through Second Graders and another for Third through Fifth Graders.
Aftershock Student Ministry
Aftershock Student Ministry ministers to students in Sixth through Twelfth Grade during the week through our mid-week Youth Worship Service held every Wednesday night at 6:30 pm in the Youth Room. Additionally, youth are given an opportunity to grow at various camps, conferences, fellowships and outings throughout the year.
Oasis Women’s Ministry
Growing in the Lord. Connecting women with other women of God. Sharpening one another. These are the purposes of Oasis Women’s Ministry. Just as an oasis in the desert provides a place of refreshment, our prayer is that through Oasis, each woman can be refreshed, restored, and renewed. We welcome all women in any season of life and aim to grow together spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and relationally.
Throughout the year, we meet for our annual Restored Retreat, Life Groups, bible studies and coffee dates, and other fellowship outings to help women grow in the Lord and connect with one another. Join us at the River, and let’s live life together.
The Huddle Men’s Ministry
Philippians 3:12, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” In this, Paul tells us that we are not perfect and will never obtain perfection in this life. But as we draw closer to God and allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, we are brought to a place where we can be a Godly man.
The Men’s Ministry is a ministry where men can come together to sharpen one another through fellowship, good food and Bible studies as we grow to be the Godly men that God calls us to be, the husbands we should be, the fathers we should be, and the friends we should be. Our men meet throughout the year for our annual Conference, various bible studies, Life Groups, and fellowship outings, as well as each Sunday morning for "The Huddle" Men's Group.
Life is not meant to be lived alone! Life groups are designed so that you can experience life with others while building new, solid friendships as well as strengthening and growing with each other in your walk with Christ. Life Groups are also a place to serve, learn, have fun, and most importantly, get to know people with whom you can learn to live the life that God intended.
Life Groups are such a vital part of River of Life. Our desire is to have every member engaged in a Life Group. Our Life Groups are arranged in such a way that should accommodate every believer. We have a group for adults of all ages and all are encouraged to connect to one another through Life Groups.
