A NIGHT OF BIBLE STUDY: Friday, April 23 from 7 PM - 1 AM at the Mills campus. Join us for a unique, one-night event led by Pastor David Platt that is streamed online to over 50,000 participants around the world. Encouraged by our persecuted brothers and sisters' example, this event is an intense 5+ hour study of God's Word and passionate prayer for the persecuted. This evening is designed to be a ground-breaking journey through God’s Word and around the world that leads to a tectonic shift in the way you view your life, your family, and God’s design for the church. For your eyes will be open not only to a great imbalance that is affecting countless people for eternity, but also to the bold opportunity you have to change it with your time on this earth. The cost for this event is $12 which includes a study guide for the teaching. Please register online by April 11 at rccconnect.org/study. For more information please contact Nathan Arvay at naarvay@gmail.com.


A NIGHT OF PRAYER: Wednesday, April 28, 7 pm at Oakmont and the Mills. Join the pastors and leadership of Riverside as we gather again for another night of prayer. If you are not comfortable meeting in-person, please set aside time at home to pray. We hope you will join us as we lift up the concerns of those in our church and our ministries to kids, students, and young adults. We will also focus on the needs of our ministry partners as we pray for breakthroughs in seeing God’s kingdom come locally, regionally, and globally. May His will be done!
