Open Arms is a ministry dedicated to helping men be the spiritual man God calls them to be. A godly man is a servant, and being a spiritual leader does not mean dominating your family. It means serving your family, and being a godly example to their family. Open Arms provides men with resources to develop godly character, and to equip them to influence their world for Christ. Open Arms offers a bi-weekly bible study/fellowship and other special events and activities throughout the year.

Men’s Fellowship meets the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 6:15pm in the Youth Room

Heart 2 Heart is bible study for women ages 18 and up. Our vision is to touch the heart of God so that we can touch the hearts of others. Often times women are so busy being Martha…taking care of everyone and everything else, that they never take the time to be Mary and just sit at the feet of Jesus to get refreshed.

At Heart 2 Heart, we want to provide times for women to sit at the feet of Jesus, and other times to just have some good old relaxing fun with other women of faith. Heart 2 Heart meets once a month for bible study and fellowship. In addition, we conduct quarterly “Breakfast and the Word” for women, as well as special classes, events, and activities as scheduled.

Meet every 3rd Monday at 6:30pm in Youth Room

Sowing seeds is an outreach to assist the elderly, the handicapped, and the needy with yard clean-up. We mow, trim bushes and trees, edge lawns and do some planting and landscaping. These services are free of charge and we do not ask for donations; we simply want to be a blessing and show the love of Jesus. Visit us on Facebook at Sowing Seeds Ministry- Rivers of Life Church

Our ministry is for 7th to 12th graders and meets every Sunday at 11:00am. Our goal is to guide our youth in the Word of God, helping them to grow and develop in their relationship with Jesus so that they will set the trend rather than follow the trends of today’s culture.

Our team of teachers are trained and equipped to instruct youth in the Word of God and are here to help assist youth with the various challenges they face in today’s world. We also offer special events and activities for youth to get involved in.

KidsFPThe Mission Department is the love of God in action. Through events like the Great Turkey Giveaway, Winter Coat Drive and One Item Outreach, we are providing necessary items that most take for granted. We are blessed to be a blessing not only to the people here in our own community, but also in other nations, such as the Mayan Achi Indians in Pacux, Baja Verapaz, Guatemala.

God promised us in Prov. 28:27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack. We have the giving heart of God beating strong within us.
