River of Life Commission for the Church

River of Life pots & meOn Sunday 23rd of October 2011 our Church, River of Life City Church honoured some church leaders for the genuine and valuable service within the church over a vast number of years.

In deciding how to best show our appreciation for all they have given of themselves, a verse from the bible came to mind. 2 Corinthians 4:7 explains that, as humans we are all fragile and common like a clay jar, but despite our “humanness” God has still chosen to house His all-surpassing power in any of us that choose to believe in Him.

The team of elders within the church has provided stability and wisdom to the church and the people through a great number of issues and difficult situations. Each one is like a clay jar. Still human, yet able to be a shining example of the many facets of God’s character to people in times of need.

Client Testimonial

Through a recommendation we decided to approach Georgette Schwantes from Georgette’s Art in Birkdale to create the 5 Jars as a gift to represent the service of the leaders. Each one was individually crafted and inscribed with the two foundational scriptures to the church’s vision
Ps Royree Jensen

River of Life City Church.
Matthew 22:37
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
Matthew 28:19
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.

These two verses are sometimes respectively called the great commandment and the great commission.The first points us to live a life that keeps God at our center and focus while the great commission compels those who believe in the Word of God to share the Good News of salvation to all.
We hold our Sunday morning services 10am each Sunday and for more details about who we are please visit our website www.riveroflife.com.au
