God With Us
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means, ‘God is with us.’
Matthew 1:23 NLT
Christmas is a-coming! As a church family (and despite all the busyness!), we want to take time to reflect on the wonderful gift Jesus is - to us and to the World!
This is what's happening over the next few weeks:
Prayer Week - Monday 26 - Friday 30 November
We kick-start our ‘God with Us’ series with Prayer Week. As one of our vital spiritual disciplines, we want to encourage one another to a fresh season of prayer; talking and listening to God for ourselves, our families, our church, our town, our nation and our world.
If you are a member of River Church and registered on our website, you will receive an email each day giving you ‘God with Us’ Scripture(s), some thoughts and suggested Prayers and Declarations for the day. Let's get praying!
Monday 3 December through to Friday 14 December (weekdays)
God With Us Bible Readings (download here)
Then during the two weeks following, just as we have with our other Bible reading series, you will receive ‘God With Us’ themed Scriptures to read, meditate on and make in to your own prayers. The Scriptures (with links) will arrive by email each Monday morning as usual.
I pray that as we do this together it will truly ignite a fresh passion in each of us, that we will experience God’s power among us and that we will be inspired to fully step in to the new season that is promised to us as a church. Let’s take time to reflect and to remind ourselves of the great privilege it is to be God’s people … and let’s get stirred up to tell others!
