From Pastor Chris:
Is there anything more exciting than seeing someone receive the eternal gift of salvation from Jesus? I would say a resounding NO! Well, the past 2 Sundays at Riverbank Church there have been people who have said YES to Jesus! It's so cool to be a part of a church community who cares enough to invite their friends, co-workers and neighbors to our Sunday worship experience!
With this in mind, there are a few things that I would like to share with you:
SUPER BOWL!!! Lets wear our favorite football team jersey THIS SUNDAY. Now don't boo me if I don't have a Patriots jersey on :)
I am so PUMPED about our Brattleboro location! We are already seeing Jesus move in this amazing town. Please continue for FAVOR and SUCCESS as we approach the launch in April.
Life Groups! Are you signed up yet? Well, WHY NOT? I would love to see 100% participation in our Life Groups this semester. There are groups at different times of the day, in different locations and even different themes. So, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Sign up today HERE
The last 2 weeks of February we will be meeting in the UV Senior Center. Because of our growth and the limited space in the Senior Center, we will have 2 worship experience times 9 &11am. It's always a nice change of pace and a little more cozy when we get to meet in the Senior Center!
I'm so grateful for what Jesus is doing here at Riverbank Church. As I say often, GREATER THINGS ARE COMING!!!
Pastor Chris - Philippians 1:6
Here at Riverbank Church, our 2012 Vision can be summed up with the following words: Serving, Discipleship, and Harvest. Jesus says, “Make Disciples” So how do we do that? One way is through Life Groups.
We have three types: Financial, where we will go through the series “I Was Broke Now I’m Not”; Starting Point, for those who are new believers; And our message based Life Group, where groups discuss the message from our Sunday morning experience.
THIS IS THE LAST WEEK OF SIGN UPS! So get plugged into a Life Group!

NEW SERIES: Hot Topics
We will take 4 weeks to take a look at what the Bible has to say about Marriage and Relationships (2/5), Politics (2/12), God's Will (2/19) and Heaven and Hell (2/26). So make sure you invite your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors to find out what the Bible has to say about these pressing topics!

As you all know we are launching our first location in Vermont on Easter Sunday (4/8/12). We are so thrilled how Jesus is already showing us favor in this very unchurched community. We are in the process of securing our meeting place and will begin purchasing all of the equipment necessary to launch to the community in just 2 short months!
Our Launch Team has been meeting every week and even has walked the various neighborhoods praying for the families. How exciting to be a part of a church that seeks to reach Vermont and New Hampshire with the life changing message of Jesus!
PRAY: Please take the time as a church community and pray for our launch in Brattleboro. We believe that Jesus is going to do GREAT things in this area - and YOU are a part of this!
SPECIAL OFFERING: 100% of our Special Offering will go to our Brattleboro location launch on Easter 2012. As of 2/2/12 we have raised 37% of our $50,000 goal. Please pray about your participation as the resources will go toward the following:
