Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

A Divine Appointment 7/12/19

Dear River Reach Family,

Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him. 36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?”

Acts 8:35-36

We feel the weight of being a witness for the Lord. It can be intimidating to share Jesus with someone. Not everyone will respond well and trust the Lord to save them, but the Holy Spirit is at work right now in the lives of people drawing them to true faith in Christ! Somehow the Lord worked in your heart to trust Him. He is doing the same in others. He wants to use us to point others to Jesus Christ. Our passage this week will fill our hearts with joy as we seen the Holy Spirit make a divine appointment between a willing witness and seeking soul. May the Lord use us to lead others to Jesus!

Sermon: “A Divine Appointment” – Acts 8:25-40

Lunch Fellowship and Singspiration this Sunday afternoon

Following the morning service, everyone is invited to join us for a “Build Your Own Sub” lunch fellowship. After the fellowship we will join together to praise the Lord in song!

10th Anniversary Celebration July 27-28th

In two week we will celebrate 10 years of the Lord’s faithfulness to us as a church family. Our theme will be: “Built Together by God’s Grace” (1 Corinthians 12:18).

Testimonies of God’s Grace: I think it would be encouraging to all of us to be able to share testimony of how the Lord has built you in His grace through our church. If you would like to share a testimony, or write down a testimony for others to read, we will provide an opportunity to tell of the Lord’s grace. If you know you have something to share, please let me know.
