Your Community, Your Church Family, Your Home
River Christian Church is part of the community, hosting outreach and teaching the word of God every day with (over/nearly) (60,000) people visiting our campus in 2021. Our ministries such as Celebrate Recovery, Grief Share, Divorce Care, Life Groups, Counseling, Food & Friends, River Preschool, and many, many others serve over a thousand people a week in their walk with Jesus. Due to the growth God has entrusted in RCC, this campus is our fifth home in just seven years.
Chest of Joash
Since the acquisition of the campus and to keep up with the needs of the activities and people, we are continually assessing priorities and making investments to fix and improve many areas of the campus. Maintaining a safe, welcoming experience is top of mind for us and the growth we are experiencing now is stressing our maintenance and building improvement plans.
To help catch up and keep pace with growth, we would like you to consider a special offering patterned after the story we find in the Bible of King Joash. When Joash was the King of Israel, he had a chest placed beside the altar in the temple of the Lord. All money placed in that chest was used to repair the temple of the Lord (2 Kings 12). King Joash’s “chest” was for a special offering to make repairs. The temple had fallen out of repair since King Solomon’s time, both through use and inattention. RCC’s very own “Chest of Joash” will be used to help fund repairs and improvements in four key areas:
- Air Conditioning
- Atrium flooring
- Parking Lot
We have received estimates for the combined cost of addressing these areas in 2022 for a total of $200,000. Through this special offering and generous congregation, we are prayerful that this goal will be met.
How to Participate
You will notice two chests located in the atrium with signs for “Chest of Joash” and a slot in the top to place your offering. Other ways to contribute are by donating online or by mailing your offering to 5900 US 17, Fleming Island, FL 32003. If you are interested in donating in other ways please reach out to Anthony Favors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
