Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

River Reach News 8/19

Dear River Reach Family,

Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he owned, “Please place your hand under my thigh, 3 and I will make you swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I live, 4 but you will go to my country and to my relatives, and take a wife for my son Isaac.” Genesis 24:2-4

Is it possible to raise godly children in a pagan culture?  What does it take to pass faith on to the next generation?  This Sunday we will observe Abraham’s passion to see Isaac pursue God’s will through faith.

Sermon: “A Faith to Follow” Genesis 24:1-9

A great week at family camp!

 Thank you for all your prayers for family camp this past week.  All three families from our church had a great time and were challenged by the preaching of God’s Word.  Thank you for those who gave to help the Golanbar’s be able to attend.  It was a really good opportunity to get to know them better and fellowship with them around God’s Word.  I believe the Lord worked in all of our hearts!
