It's for ages 3 through 5th grade and registration is now open. Please help us spread the word by inviting your neighbors and by sharing the posts on Facebook and Twitter. Encourage them to pre-register at riversprings.orgto cut down on check-in time this evening.

If you are in town this weekend, I want to encourage you to join us this Sunday for worship as we continue with The Story. Come enjoy coffee and fellowship at 10:00 am. Worship begins at 10:25 am. I look forward to seeing you.
 

In Christ,

Pastor Jimmy

Church Cleaning Ministry
Help keep River Springs Church looking shiny and new by joining our Cleaning Team! It may not be the most glorious of jobs, but it’s a necessary one, and we appreciate each volunteer that takes the time to keep our building clean.  The cleaning team fulfills a crucial role as a part of the mission of River Springs Church: helping people experience life to its fullest in Christ. The church is designed to be a volunteer organization, for the most part. The power of the is when men and women, young and old, offer their gifts to work out God’s redemptive plan. It's true. The power of the church lies with you finding your place to serve and contribute to the mission. When we serve the Lord with the gifts He’s given us; we can accomplish all that God has called us to. We have many areas to keep clean in our church building – preschools, classrooms, nursery, lobby, bathrooms, refreshment area, kitchen, and sanctuary. It takes many hands and feet to maintain the cleanliness both as the building is used for service, classes, public meetings, projects, ministry and events and a regular with overall maintenance cleaning. The Beacon Church cleans in the last two weeks of each month, and River Springs Church will be cleaning in the first two weeks of the month. We invite everyone to consider being part of the Cleaning Team!  We need more volunteers. If you are willing to help with this, please reply to this email.
