Monthly Financial Update

August 2019

God continued His work among us and through us during August:
• We had the highest ever monthly average attendance for the month of August in Riverside’s history!
• People continued to say YES to Jesus as Lord throughout the month!
• We celebrated 90 people who followed the Lord in baptism at our Summer Picnic and Baptism day!
• God used our RK summer camp to encourage many of our kids and 16 children said Yes to Jesus as Lord during the week!

Growth in attendance (at both our campuses) continues at a strong pace and giving for August was good in both our major funds.

Every week is an opportunity to invite someone to “sit with me” at Riverside. Thank you for being outward-focused as a church.

Digital giving makes such a huge difference in so many people’s lives here. It helps people develop the consistent practice of the grace of giving and putting God first in their finances. Between 50% - 75% of all our giving happens digitally. You can always give it a try (“Automate the Important”).

Pray for everyone who considers Riverside Church their spiritual home to practice the grace of giving and generosity being just a “normal” response for our church so we can reach more people for Jesus.

Thanks to all of you who give to the Lord’s work through Riverside Church. It makes a difference in real people’s lives here and around the world every week.

Both the opportunities and obstacles we face are very real, as they are for any of God’s churches seeking to partner with Him in making a Kingdom impact. Keep praying that God will clearly lead us, empower us by His Spirit, and show us His ways.

God is at work in and through Riverside, touching the lives of thousands of people in significant ways. Your gifts help make that happen, both now and for eternity.

God bless you all!
Pastor Tom
