Commitment Sunday
Growing in Commitment, Rooted in Faith

Over the last month, we’ve read stories from our church family about why River Road Church is a place they call home. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen banners hang in the narthex, Lower Commons, and Fellowship Hall showing memories of our ministries from the last year. Over the last couple of Sundays, we’ve heard from friends in worship speak about why commitment to RRCB is important to them. We encourage you to be in prayer, thinking about how you can commit to River Road Church in 2019. Pledge cards are available in the pew racks. You are encouraged to place your pledge card in the model steeple, located in the narthex of the Sanctuary.
