New Sermon Series: How Do I Think About . . . ? We'll be looking at a wide array of interesting topics including Controversial Issues, Poverty, Salvation and more.
Feb 14 - Feb. 22 River Goes to India: We're sending a small team to New Delhi, India to work with our partners there: ASHA. Asha is an NGO which has been serving people in the slums of New Delhi, India since 1988. The River has been sending over teams since 2014. Stay tuned to our adventures by following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter where we'll be posting pics & videos.
Sunday, Feb. 16 - All-Together "Brunch Church" Service: Once in awhile we change things up a bit and do this different type of gathering where we bring in some tasty food from Au Bon Pain and gather our whole community together (kids included!) for a fun and interactive church-around-the-table. We've found that it's a nice change of pace and a great way to connect!
Saturday, Feb. 22 & March 7 - Working Moms Group in Battery Park City: Are you a mom who works outside of the home? With the busy demands of work & home, it's not easy to find time for ourselves. But we have found that carving out a little space to connect with others and God helps life go better. You're invited to give it a try! Fill out a Connection Card at the Sunday service or an e-Connection card on the River NYC app for more info.
Wednesday, Feb. 26 - Ash Wednesday: In the traditional church calendar this is the day that kicks off the season of Lent (the 6 weeks that lead up to Easter on April 12). At the River, we use this season to lean into experiencing more of God’s goodness and spiritual power in our lives and in our community. We call it "40 Days of Faith." Stay tuned for more info!
Saturday, Feb. 29: Father's Heart Food Ministry: Every month we get a group together to serve at The Father's Heart Ministries, which has been operating a food pantry/soup kitchen in the East Village since 1998. We'd love for you to join us! For more info you can mark your Connection Card on Sunday for more info or submit an e-Connection Card via the River app. Learn more about Father's Heart here.
Saturday, March 7 - River Family Group: This gathering provides a space for families and children to connect. We begin a pot-luck dinner (kids included) and then time of sharing and discussion (childcare provided). We meet in Park Slope but families from anywhere are welcome! For more information or to RSVP please fill out a Connection Card at the Sunday service or an E-Connection Card on the River NYC app.
Sunday, March 8 - All Church Meeting: Do you consider the River to be your "home church"? Please mark your calendar for our important yearly gathering and report on all that's happening at the River. Lunch & childcare will be provided. Please RSVP for childcare with amelia@riverNYC.org
