Bold Prayers of the Bible Sermon Series

Pastor Otto continues his sermon series “Bold Prayers of the Bible.” The remaining series are as follows:

  • November 4th: “The Prayer of Nehemiah: Grant Me Mercy” (Nehemiah 1:4-11)
  • November 11th: “The Prayer of the Early Church: Make Us Courageous” (Acts 4:23-31)
  • November 18th: “The Prayer of Paul: Give Us Wisdom and Insight” (Ephesians 1:15-23)

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 4th at 2:00 AM. Don't forget to "fall back" one hour before you go to sleep on Saturday night. Even though Florida has approved to stay on Daylight Saving Time, this must be approved by Congress, and although the bill has been introduced, it has not been approved.

Couples Ministry

All Married and Engaged Couples are invited to our November Couple’s Fellowship “Count Your Blessings” on Saturday, November 10th, 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your favorite Fall dish! Childcare and registration must be done by November 6th. Please register by sending an e-mail to hponce@bellsouth.net or by signing up in the Foyer. To reserve childcare, please send an e-mail to Lieska Dejesus (lieska@riversideonline.org) with your children’s names and ages.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a fantastic way to get involved in the evangelism and discipleship of children around the world. Every gift is an opportunity to share the Gospel. Many boys and girls also participate in the 12-lesson discipleship course, The Greatest Journey, where they learn how to follow Christ and share Him with others faithfully. Information as to what can go in a shoebox has changed. Please read the brochure as to what can be included or click on the following link: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/. Boxes must be brought back to Riverside by Friday, November 16th as they need be taken to the relay station.
