Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

River Reach News 7/27

Dear River Reach Family,

And they have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God. 7 For they went out for the sake of the Name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to support such men, so that we may be fellow workers with the truth.” 3 John 6-8

This Sunday our missionary Bruce T. will be with us.  We look forward to hearing an update on the work God is doing in and through his ministry.  He will be updating us in Sunday School and preaching to us in the morning service.  This past Wednesday evening we read his most recent missionary update and prayed for his ministry and safe travel to be with us this Sunday.  If the Lord lays it on your heart to give a love gift to Bruce, please mark it and put it in the offering this Sunday.  We will make sure to get that to him and send him on his way in a manner worthy of the Lord!

Vacation Bible School

VBS is just 2 days away (VBS 7/29-8/1 – 6:30-8:30pm).  Thank you to those who have volunteered to help and teach in a variety of capacities!  This week Pastor Dan sent out additional information in an email concerning VBS.  Here are just a few announcements:

  • Flyers: VBS flyers are available on the lobby table, please take a few and invite any children you know.  If they come they will have a great time and hear the Gospel.
  • Craft Items: In preparation for some of the crafts we could use your help collecting 2 liter bottles and aluminum soup cans.  You may leave these items in the storage room off the back of the auditorium.  Thank you!
  • VBS Decoration Night – Friday 7/27 – 6:30pm – We could use your help to make the week of VBS special through creative decorations.  Your help on this evening would be greatly appreciated!
  • Family Fun Night – Wednesday, August 1st will be our family fun night!  All parents and adults are invited to enjoy a special time of games, ice cream, and a Gospel challenge from God’s Word.


Please pray that God will work in and through our willing service to advance Christ’s kingdom!
