A Note from Tony

I do hope you had a great time over Thanksgiving! I love this time of the year as we begin to enter the holiday and Christmas season! We all know that sometimes our calendar gets really loaded during this time and we wonder if we can add one other thing to our schedules!

If you were not here this past Sunday, we spent some time focusing on what is most important. I hope that over the next few weeks, that you will be sure to keep making the main thing the main thing. What is the main thing? Telling others about Jesus! Remember Luke 15:7, ’I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.’ For that reason, we have four different opportunities for you to invite others so they will hear the gospel message:

Lighting of the Tree – Thursday, Dec. 3, 7-9p            
A Riverside Family Christmas – Sunday, Dec. 6 at 6p           
A Trailhead Christmas – Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7p
Christmas Eve Service – Thursday, Dec. 24 at 5p

Also as we think about all of the mission opportunities we have been and will be involved in, I hope that you will keep Riverside in mind as we collect our year end mission offering. Look in the seatbacks or in our 2015 Mission Report for more information as 100% this offering will be used to spread the gospel right here in Denver and literally around the world!

It’s an exciting time to be a part of Riverside! I hope you will take advantage of these times together and bring someone with you!
