Every first Sunday of the month we will be doing something a bit different in worship. We are calling it Family Swim because the entire family of River Life will gather as a community for worship. This means children (Kindergarten and above), junior highers, high school, and everyone else. We will have our worship boxes for our younger ones; or for those young at heart! We will worship together but there will also be some important components you should be aware of. They are:
This is communion Sunday, so we will be headed to the table as a family partaking of the sacrament of communion together. There will be a short time of teaching as we approach the table.
We will be taking our Joseph Offering this Sunday. For January, we’re collecting items for four men living in Oak Park and working with Young Life. Please see the Joseph Offering post for the details.
We will have an open sharing and prayer time to find out what’s happening in our community and how to care for one another. Come ready to share and to pray for one another!
And, yes, in all this…first Sunday is our Donut Sunday. We have cut back on donuts and have decided to have them once a month. You will get your donut…yes, you will get your donut!
This will be a time of sharing from one another and, because of that, there will not be a sermon. Our living together as a community will be the message.
