We created and launched River Institute to help equip you to grow in your faith through one night intensive seminars. This allows us to go a little deeper once a month. We want River Church to grow in spiritual maturity. Come on the journey with an open heart and mind for the Holy Spirit to move in your life. We will provide the materials you can reference in your future study. We pray you leave encouraged and changed. We meet once a month on Wednesday Nights, September through April from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Come ready for a fast-paced, but practical study.
Train Up A Child
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Speakers: Panel of Church Members
Parenthood doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Most of us learn how to raise children or grandchildren by trial-and-error. In this panel discussion you’ll hear from some parents and grandparents who have lived to tell about it and share some insights they’ve learned along the way.
When Bad Things Happen
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Kyle Greenwood, Associate Pastor
Life doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes bad things happen to the best people. Why does God let that happen? Does everything really happen for a reason? This session will explore what the Bible does and does not say about this topic, as well as how these questions have been resolved by theologians over the millennia.
The Purpose and Power of Prayer
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Jeff Baxter, Lead Pastor
John Wesley once said, “God does nothing but by prayer, and everything in it.” We’ve all heard it said that “prayer works” and that prayer is essential to a strong faith. This session will discuss the biblical mandate for prayer, demonstrate examples for the effectiveness of prayer, and defend the role of prayer as vital for Christians and the work of God.
