Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Responding to the Gospel – Acts 13:42-52

Dear River Reach Family,

When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed. 

Acts 13:48

What some reject others receive. Every human being is free to choose how they will respond to God. There are plenty of petty and false reasons people reject God’s love (Acts 13:45). Thankfully God assures that there will be some that receive the good news of Jesus and gain present joy and eternal life! (Acts 13:48) While the Gospel troubles some, it brings unending joy to those who receive it!

Sermon: “Responding to the Gospel” – Acts 13:42-52

Fall Fun Fest in 1 week!

We are excited about another fun opportunity to serve the Lord together as a church by reaching out into our community! If you are able to help this year at Fall Fun Fest, please speak with Pastor Dan. We need as many people as possible to join us in serving on Saturday, October 19th. Flyers are available on the credenza in the lobby to invite your friends and neighbors!

Please pray that people will come and see the love and light of Christ in us!

The God Who Hears book study continues this Sunday @ 6:00pm

Assignment: Read Chapters 3: “All Knowing: What is there to tell Him?” Please be prepared to discuss the chapter and the questions at the end 🙂

I have a few more books available on the lobby credenza if you want one, or you may order your own book. I’m looking forward to how the Lord will use this study to strengthen our prayer lives.
