Dear Riverpark Family,
As we approach Thanksgiving, our desire for you and your family is to take time to recount all the Lord has done in your life.
My family and I were looking back on all the Lord has done this past year, and Psalm 9:1 rang in our ears. “I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.” It is the joy of my life to labor with you in the soil of ministry, but also to rejoice in the harvest!
As David did, so do we want to remember what the Lord has done. We have seen the lost found, discipleship thriving in our small groups, new staff members prospering as they serve the body, and incredible unity and joy amongst our elders and staff. In fact, there is so much to recount that the Lord as done, it is easy to lose count!
On Sunday November 18, we will be celebrating this Harvest season together as the body of Christ. One of the many things we are thankful for is our Harvest offering from last year, allowing us to accomplish our goal to paint the building, establish new signage, and firm up our security and check-in for our children. We are blessed to have met these goals, with our signs in the final design stage to start building after the first of the year.
This year the elders have prayerfully considered that our Harvest offering would be used to pay down the remaining debt on the Alluvial property. We currently owe $158,051 and are desiring to pay off this debt as soon as possible in order to place those funds into other ministry opportunities the Lord has for us. We are excited to see how the Lord will use that property in the future for the work of His kingdom.
Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord and making it a joy to work for Christ with you. I trust you and your family have a restful and Christ-centered Thanksgiving.
You are Loved,
