Hey River Church Family,
For the next five weeks, River Church Family will be embarking on a journey together where we will not gather in person in our building on Sunday mornings, but we will engage in shared messages online that promote fervent prayer, deep reflection, and active pursuit of God throughout the week. We are calling this journey Advent at Home.
Advent at Home is taking a bold risk. It is developing the determination and the discipline to wait on God. It is making the decision to press in deeper, to lean in further, to develop longing in our hearts and souls for God.
As you engage this risk, we want to encourage you: you will not be alone. Each Sunday, we will stream messages online that you will be able to connect with live at 10am. Our pastoral staff will be available to engage with you during these live sessions. The messages will have a focus on ways you can actively participate and pursue God on that Sunday or for that week of Advent.
We encourage you to ask one other family or a couple of individuals to gather with you in your home, to watch together and engage in practicing together. We believe this will heighten your sense of expectation and allow you to encounter this experience with someone else. We encourage you to pursue one or two deep connections in this season. 
We will also be providing live Zoom meetings where you can participate in a weekly group discussion with others about your Advent at Home journey if you choose. 
Finally, a box of resources is available to you to pickup at the church or by emailing info@rivercentral.org or calling the church office at 816-356-7400.
Our theme over these next few weeks is from a familiar carol: The Weary World Rejoices. Friends, our world may be weary, we ourselves may be weary, but we have cause for celebration. And as we engage this time, we believe God is going to revive in our hearts the hope, peace, love and rejoicing that the incarnate presence of Jesus Christ in our lives brings. We believe we will fan into flame what the living breath of the Holy Spirit within us ignites.
We look forward to the opportunity to connect with God and one another on a deeper level during our Advent at Home journey.
