Our spiritual lives are the overflow of rich, spiritual truth. God has secured so much for us and, now, God’s people can live in light of His promises. In this series, discover the power of “since”— a catalyst connector that causes us to look at past truth for present life.

Couples come to the altar bursting with love for each other. Yet, based on how many marriages are unfulfilling, unhappy, or worse yet, end in divorce, it would seem that the love that gets couples married isn't enough to keep couples married. Maybe if we had the ability to love unconditionally, like God does, love would be enough, but we don't. Therefore, love falls short. Love isn't enough to save struggling marriages. Join us in the month of February as we discover what can.

We’ve all been there. Things are not changing; they are not getting better or maybe they are getting worse. You can get stuck in a pattern of thinking or in a place of temptation and getting unstuck isn’t easy, especially when you feel emotionally bogged down. Join us as we discover that God has given us His Word to meet us where we are. He finds us stuck and wants to give us traction. We will learn that He never wants to leave us in a condition that doesn’t reflect His plans for us.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20

Making Room matters because all people matter to God. There are people in our community who have not been reached. Not everyone in our neighborhoods attends church much less walks with Christ, but God loves those people. Our scorecard has never been size, but faithfulness. Making Room is a response to God’s vision for First Riverview to make more room in our hearts and in our church campus. Making Room is a reminder to keep God center in our vision, in our heart and in our finances which will allow us to continue to passionately pursue influencing others to become thriving followers of Christ.

Sometimes, life doesn’t work out like we expected. Even those who walk closely with God find themselves in the pit once in a while. But, when circumstances seem to be against us, God is always at work for us, accomplishing His purposes for our good and His glory. As we study the life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50, we learn how to find faith when life turns sour.

Christians today live in a world that is activity heavy and relationship light. The result is spiritual emptiness. We struggle to know what God wants from us and for us... and we’re unsure what a real relationship with God really looks like. But that was never God’s idea. HIS idea of faith is not about rules or religion— it’s about relationship. That’s where God tells us to start. In Romans 12, God gives us a clear picture of what Christians should look like at the root level. If you’re ready to move from “  in  ” to “  all in  ,” then you’re ready to become a Romans 12 Christian. The next steps for you to  THRIVE  on your journey toward true spirituality start here.

We all go into a relationship with something — something from our past, an expectation of the future, ideas about dating, the struggle of waiting on God's timing or the question of what our purpose is in marriage. In the series "Love Story," we're studying the book of Ruth, particularly the relationship between Boaz and Ruth. They both carried a past into their relationship, but pursued God in their lives. Their love story left a godly legacy of redemption for future generations. Are you willing to let God write your love story?

In this Christmas sermon series based on  Matthew 1 , we will take a look at five people from Jesus’ family tree and what they tell us about navigating our own relationship rough spots.
