Greetings friends, 

I pray that you are having a great week to this point. I want to invite you to join us tonight at 6:30 at the church as we'll have our friend Andy from India joining us. He'll be on hand discussing his ministry, his current needs, our upcoming mission trip to India, and ongoing opportunities to partner with this ministry. I hope you'll consider being with us.

This Sunday, we'll be in week 5 of our series on prayer, called Ask, Seek, Knock. Join us for coffee at 10. Worship starts at 10:25. I hope to see you there.


In Christ,

Pastor Jimmy

Service Project - Help the Homeless – Saturday - March 9th
Join us as we make blankets and all-purpose bags for the homeless using recycled materials to help the homeless and save the environment. We will gather from 9 am to noon to make easy no-sewing blankets out of donated t-shirts being collected. We will cut squares to be tied together for these blankets. We will also be making crocheted all-purpose bags out of PLARN. This is a family project – all ages and genders welcome to help. There will be donuts, coffee/drinks, snacks and fun fellowship all while we serve together. If you can help with some prep work of t-shirts (cutting squares) or making PLARN rolls, or for details, please contact missions@riversprings.org or see Terry Adkins/Faith Moeck.

Blue House Ministry – Local Mission Opportunity
Expanding our Snack Pack Ministry we are partnering with Dutch Fork Baptist Church with their existing Gates Community Center, which is a small blue house that is used as an emergency shelter for families in need in the Richland/Lexington District 5 schools who are homeless. The house is fully furnished and stocked with items the families need on a regular basis. The families are ministered to during their stay and are told the Good News of Jesus. The partnership we have started will help them with supplies and some hands-on help with house repairs & cleaning. We are collecting the following items ongoing to help stock the Blue House including – Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Clorox Wipes, Clorox Spray Cleaner, Room Air Fresheners (no candles) and Wet Mop Pads (for Swiffer type mops). If you would like to donate any of these items, please put into collection box marked Blue House Ministry. Details coming onsite service on iServe Day – May 18. Contact Terry Adkins or email missions@riversprings.org for more information.
