Serve on Christmas Eve

This Christmas, step into serving at River Run and join us as we reach our community with the good news of Jesus’ birth thousands of years ago and what that means for them today. Christmas Eve services have historically been our largest in attendance which makes serving all the more exciting! There are many unique opportunities to serve during these special services so no matter your talents or comfort level, we feel confident that we have a place just for you. Come and be part of helping us welcome and love our community this Christmas!

There’s nothing better than helping people know Jesus.

Bring the joy of Jesus to our community this Christmas 

Every year at River Run we partner with two of our Non-Profit ministries, Inmates of the Cross and Helping Hands, to change lives through generosity during the holiday season. Inmates of the Cross collects Christmas presents for families of inmates who need love and support during this season. Helping Hands is a ministry that reaches out to the under-resourced in Bithlo to make Christmas a blessing to them.

You can pick up an ornament in the lobby beginning November 6th to get info on what to purchase for one or both of these ministries. Stocking and gifts can be dropped off any time before December 4th.

Follow the Give link for opportunities to give online and the Info link for more details !
