PRAYING FOR ADULT CHILDREN – This Tuesday, Feb. 24, 7 PM @ RSC

This is based upon Stormie Omartian’s book, The Power of Praying for your Adult Children. Please call or text Jenn Marsh if interested at 606-8358. We meet each Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. in the sofa classroom at River Springs Church, except the 4thTuesday each month when we meet in the evening at 7 PM. This group will be open to any woman, no matter her church affiliation. We know the world today is a much different place than when we grew up and we need wisdom to know how to intercede in prayer for our children. As Hannah prayed in I Sam. 1:27, “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.”  Come join us! This Tuesday, Feb. 24, 7 PM.

 

Help a Family Who Lost Everything in a Fire

One of Charla Draper's former employees (friend) and her family lost everything they had in an apartment fire this past week. We are collecting any items of clothing listed below to help them get back on their feet. They are currently looking for another place to stay, hopefully by March 1st. At that time they will need to rebuild household items & furniture as well. For now please look in your closets for any clothing items and bring them to Church on Wednesday night or Sunday. Or if you would like to give Wal-Mart gift cards or other similar gift cards - those are welcome too. We will put boxes/bins in the lobby to collect items and if you are giving a gift card, please give to Charla, Pastor Tim or Terry Adkins so they don't get lost.

 

Items needed right now:

 

Kazue (mom) 

shirts size medium/large

pants size 8-10

 

Trae (dad)

shirts size large

pants size 34/32 or 34/34

 

Korie (baby girl - 1yr old)

size 24mo - 2T

 

These are basic clothing items above, but think about socks, diapers/wipes, coats, jackets, baby blankets etc. as we are still having cold weather. Any questions please let us know and watch for possible other needs when they are able to find a more permanent place to live.

Thank you for considering giving and reaching out with the love of Jesus!

A Great Gift for your Child or Grandchild

On Wednesday evenings, Mrs. Gloria Shull teaches our children about the Bible. She uses a marvelous new 13 part video series done by the creator of VeggieTales, Phil Vischer. This series is called Buck Denver asks… What’s In The Bible? We encourage parents to send their children to Kidventure each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. and, especially if your child can’t attend on Wednesday, we heartily recommend that you purchase DVDs (or just watch them online) in this series and watch them with your child. You’ll learn so much about the Bible that you didn’t know, plus you’ll laugh your guts out. And there’s a new 4 part Easter series that focuses on the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Christ. You can find it online atwww.whatsinthebible.com or maybe you can find bargains at christianbook.com or lifeway.com or amazon.com.
