Message: Have you ever said something that you wish you could take back? Have you ever said something, and then wonder, “Where did that come from?” I’ll bet you have. This Saturday at 11am we’ll take a look at James’ answer to where those words came from, but please, viewer discretion is advised as the message will Scandalous!
Prayer: As I said in my most recent sermon, the involvement of a church family in prayer is a better indicator of success than the size of any church facility. On that note, I am praising the Lord for the fervent prayers regularly offered up by so many at our weekly prayer meeting. This is a special place. Join us for prayer, every Wednesday 6pm in our fellowship hall.
Things Happening: Our Mother’s Day brunch was a fantastic success! We have some very special mother’s here at Riverview and we are thankful for them.
Nita Dornburg celebrated her 75th birthday this week, Marvin and Pat Spilovoy celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary, and Norman Vance will celebrate his 80th birthday this weekend. What a week! Here are some pictures associated with the festivities:
One of the greatest joys in ministry is studying with those preparing for baptism. I have been studying with Elijah Small for a few weeks now and I can’t wait till he can share with our congregation some of what he’s got cooking! Here is a sneak peak. Thank you to everyone who came to Strawberry Festival to support our school and our kids. What an amazing performance. An overwhelming favorite was the band. A special thank you and shout out to our very own Tom Cushing for doing such a fabulous job with our band! And because the food was also good (who doesn’t like strawberry shortcake?!) a tip of the hat to Keith Boyce and Scott Felan for preparing it!
Personal: Well, I appreciate Randy Nomura for a lot of reasons, but I received a new reason this week. Thank you Randy for taking this adorable picture of my daughter! (Note the moms standing in the back right corner :))
