Donations Needed by Oct. 29th for Firefighter Blessing Baskets
Our local firefighters and first responders play an important role in protecting our community - while risking their lives to save others. RVC would like to show God's love and our gratitude by making October a special time of praying for and blessing each firehouse with Blessing Baskets filled with treats.
Pray - Pick up a card from one of the ushers and add a station to your daily prayer list. Pray for wisdom to guide them, encouragement to uplift them and God's love to comfort them.
Donate - In addition to prayer, we're assembling a Blessing Basket for each shift at all six stations. Beginning this Sunday, look for a table set up for donations of non-perishable snack items such as snack size chips, fun-size candy bars, microwave popcorn, cookies, coffee, tea, fruit cups, etc. We're also looking for donations of DVDs such as Courageous, Fireproof, War Room or other movies with Christian themes. You can donate cash by writing "Firefighter blessing" in the memo line of your check and we'll use it to purchase supplies. Consider writing an encouraging card (children's cards and drawings are welcome too!) to tuck in the basket.
Pack - Sunday, October 29 at 1 pm, we'll gather to assemble donations into our Blessing Baskets.
Deliver - Following packing, volunteers will deliver baskets and notes to each station.

Why Equipping Hour?
RiverValley Church's elders are very serious about their responsibilty to equip believers for the work of serving God. That's why we are calling the church body to a deeper commitment. As leaders, we know this isn't a call to comfort, but it is a call to be more purposeful about equipping believers to follow Jesus. For this reason, we have made the decision to revise the Sunday worship schedule to add an Equipping Hour for all ages. Also, check out this video with Pastor Dave and our Family & Children's Ministry Director Julie Coons on what RVC kids will be doing during our Equipping Hour...
