Join us in uplifting the Church, missionaries, nations, tribes and unbelievers in prayer, that God will intervene according to His Riches in Glory. Prayer is a fundamental tool in taking ground in every aspect of our lives. Let us stand before the Lord in the gap on behalf of the land (Ezekiel 22:30). Mathew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Empower is open to anyone at River Valley that has been through our Alpha; if you have not attended Alpha you will need to sign up for that. There is nothing more exciting than living a Spirit-filled empowered life! This eight-week Bible study will instruct, encourage, experience and inspire you to walk in all that Jesus has made available to you through the infilling of the Holy Spirit and the gifts that He imparts. These gifts are vital and need to be used in order to be effective witnesses for Him. In this study you will learn about the unseen world, which is called the Spirit realm. Even though we don't see it with our physical eyes, we interact with it on a daily basis. You will also learn in detail about each of the nine gifts of the Spirit and how they are used throughout the Old and New Testament by ordinary people. Finally, you will have the opportunity to deepen your relationship with the Lord through the lessons on prayer and intercession. Are you ready to get started? Our group will meet weekly at our campus on Wednesdays September 20 thru November 6, 6:30pm-8pm. Doors open and check in will be available beginning at 6pm. We will conclude our group by serving together on Tuesday Nov. 14 at 7pm in Coon Rapids (ages 5+ are welcome to attend)
