Pray NOW for Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico has been in a difficult economic crisis for a couple of years. Less than two weeks ago Hurricane Irma caused much damage and interrupted electricity and water service. Now Hurricane Maria is battering Puerto Rico. Please pray for our sister church, Iglesia Bautista Tabernaculo Reunion, in Aibonito PR, for Pastor Miguel & Mama Ludy Madera and for the congregation there. Pray for their safety in the storm and then for their opportunities to minister and show the love of Christ.

Snack Pack Ministry
We continue our Snack Pack Ministry, supporting Dutch Fork HS, Dutch Fork MS and Spring Hill HS. Each week we supply hungry students, identified by the schools as not having enough food at home, a weekend Snack Pack. Last year we gave between 25-45 Snack Packs a week. We are now collecting items needed to fill these Snack Packs each week.

Items needed are single serving/individual packets of: Ravioli/Canned Pasta, Mac & Cheese, Ramen Noodles, Applesauce cups, Fruit Cups, Rice Crispy Treats, Breakfast Bars, Fruit Snacks, Grits, Oatmeal, Lance Crackers, Noodle Cups, Capri Sun Juice Pouches and Cereal (Individual bowls/boxes). Collection Bins are on the table as you enter the Big Room.

Save the date: Saturday - October 21st 12:00pm-3:00pm: We need volunteers to serve at the Annual Snack Pack Food Drive at the Ballentine Walmart. Watch for more information on both the Snack Pack Ministry preparations and the Annual Food Drive and all the ways you can serve in this ministry. Contact Terry@riversprings.org for any questions.
 
Attention Kids Klub Parents
As we get back to our regular school routine in Kids Klub, I wanted to remind parents that the children will be asked every Sunday morning for a memorized Bible verse.  Please help your children in memorizing at least one Bible verse that they can share with the class. – Cindy Peachey
