It’s pretty amazing to see how quickly we are moving through the month of May! I was looking at the calendar this morning and even though it certainly doesn’t feel like it, we will be into summer before we know it!

Looking at those months, here are a few key dates for our summer activities!
                VBS Carnival: June 18
                VBS: June 19 – June 23
                Basecamp (Student Camp): June 26–June 30

Thanks so much for your faithfulness over the past few weeks! Pastor Tony and Sherry are doing great and will be back with us soon! Keep praying for them as they are wrapping up the final days of their sabbatical!

A Note from Jason

Hello Riverside!
 
It really is nice to see the sun and not have snow for a change! Although I’m grateful for the moisture, the warm weather is nice!

I just wanted to say thank you for the way you all responded a couple of weeks ago to the impromptu offering for Rick Ackerman. He was so grateful for everyone’s generosity as was I. You gave just over $3000!

I also wanted to say thank you for your faithfulness while Tony and Sherry have been on their sabbatical. He’ll be out for a few more weeks. As they are out, here are a few specific things you can pray for them:

1    Pray they can let go of “stuff” and enjoy each other.
2    Pray that Tony will hear God’s heartbeat.
3    Pray that in His timing, He will clearly show Tony how to divide up the responsibilities of staff at Riverside.
4    Pray that Tony and Sherry are strengthened and re-energized for the task ahead of us.
5    Pray they will share Jesus with as many total strangers as possible!

Have a great week! Love you all!

I wanted to give you a quick update on a few things. First, we were able to secure help with our worship ministry through the month of May.

For the Trailhead: Ethan Springer will serve in this worship service. Ethan is already a familiar face to Riverside. For several years, Ethan led worship at our summer children’s camp, Camp Highside. Most recently Ethan led our students during their Refill weekend.

For Sunday mornings & Wednesday choir rehearsals: Lange Patrick will begin serving with us. Lange just arrived in Denver to assist NAMB through Storyline Fellowship in building a church planter training system here in our city. Previously, Lange was leading worship at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky. He is going to be a HUGE blessing to us. He will lead our choir rehearsals each Wednesday night through May as well as lead worship on May 15, May 22 & May 29.

Secondly, I wanted you to know that during the month of May, Sherry and I will be taking a sabbatical. Many of you are already aware of this, but prior to us coming to Riverside, we were scheduled to have a sabbatical which we canceled because of the transition here. We had been planning this again for some time with our trustees. When Michael was called to another church, our initial thought was that we would cancel it again. However, Jason and our trustees held firm that it was still important that we take this time. Pray that the Lord will give us rest during this time and that we will have a special time of reconnecting!

During the month of May Jason, Landis and Jim Walters, former pastor of Bear Valley Church will be covering the preaching schedule. 

Thanks for being faithful!

Pastor Tony

A Note from Tony

I hope your week has gotten off to a great start and for those of you who were snowed in this past Sunday, we definitely missed you! It was still a great Sunday. Since so many were out, I decided to make my sermon on forgiveness two parts and will come back to this topic on Sunday! If you missed Sunday, come to the Trailhead this Wednesday night!
