Abundant Blessings

Every fall cornucopias are displayed to remind us of the abundant blessings we have received.  Let me take a moment to share with you a cornucopia of events happening at River Bend which I know will bless you.

Season of Giving – Christmas is always special, but I love how we serve our community during this special time.

On Tuesday, December 3, we will bring dinner and sing Christmas carols to the people recovering from medical treatments who are staying at the Ballard House.

This year a new project for us will be to collect medical supplies for Christ Clinic as they bless families in Katy with affordable healthcare. 

Don’t miss the Fulshear Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 7.  I love bringing the Christmas message to the thousands of people who come to Fulshear for this parade.

Make sure you sign up and help with Celebrate Light, an outdoor walk-through festival of lights for all ages. This will be our second year, and we have greatly expanded the experience.     

Revival Fire – “You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.” ~ Jeremiah 29:13

January 19-22, Life Action Ministries will lead us in a time of seeking God. This will be a time of prayer, praise and revival. I am looking forward to this time of seeking God personally and as a church. Please begin to pray right now that God will move in our lives and in our church in a powerful and fresh way. 

Russ Walje – How blessed we have been to have Russ and Kirsten Walje serve our youth and our church for over 11 years. Russ’ warmth and ministry has touched many people in our church and the community.  I know God has big plans for them as they return to Missouri.

20th Anniversary – In 2020, River Bend will celebrate its 20th anniversary. It is hard to believe all that God has done in 20 years, but it is remarkable. Here are some of the events being planned:

¨   Prayer Breakfast at River Bend on Wednesday, January 1, at 8:00 am

¨   Special thanksgiving and commitment service on Sunday, January 5

¨   Life Action Revival, January 19-22

¨   Anniversary of our first community worship service on Sunday, April 12

¨   Family fun, BBQ and baptism at Faith West Lake in August

¨   20th Anniversary weekend, November 7-9

More details will be coming about all these events as we celebrate God’s faithfulness and blessings all year long.
