Sabbath | Part 2

Exodus 20:8-10 // Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Work six days and do everything you need to do. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to God, your God. Don’t do any work—not you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, not even the foreign guest visiting in your town. For in six days God made Heaven, Earth, and sea, and everything in them; he rested on the seventh day. Therefore God blessed the Sabbath day; he set it apart as a holy day.

3 Ways To Give

Monthly Financial Update

Last week, Pastor Chris shared the Hebrew word, Avodah, which translates into “worship in three areas” – work, service, and praise. Practically, this looks like serving with everything we have: time, energy, and money. Every week you will find in the program a financial update including our total tithes and offerings and monthly operation costs for the previous month. This is to keep you informed on our current financial status. February Tithes & Offerings $17,662.84 | Operating Cost: $21,400.00

How To Get Involved? There are a few different ways that you can financial give and support The River Church. First is by using the envelope in the little bucket by your row on Sunday morning. Fill out the details on the front and drop it in the offering during the service. Second is by using our secure online form on our website at to give using your credit or debit card. Third you can text the amount you would like to give to 84321 and follow the prompts for setting everything up the first time. Then after that you can quickly and easily text an amount to give. It is very easy! Thank you so much for your continued support both in serving as well as in giving to helping us Love god and Love Others in the Natomas and greater Sacramento area!





If this is your first time joining us here at the River, first we want to say, Welcome! Please in no way feel that you have to give. We want this celebration to be our gift to you. But if you would like to give or you join us on a regular basis, please use the link below to use our secure online giving form.
