Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

River Reach News 12/16

Dear River Reach Family,

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.” Hebrews 1:1-2

While it is a wonderful blessing to receive a gift from a friend or loved one, nothing can ever replace the blessing of a close and loving personal relationship with another person.  When God chose to show His love to us, He filled our lives with many physical blessings, but He did not stop there.  He gave us the greatest gift of His only precious Son.  In giving His Son, He bridged the gap of our sins and offered the greatest blessing possible, eternal relationship with Him.  At the end of our morning service we will remember Christ’s life and death for us through the observance of the Lord’s Supper.

Sermon Title: “God’s Love in Giving His Son” – Hebrews 1:1-4

Christmas Program on Sunday afternoon @ 1:00pm
