FALLING FORWARD 2016-17

We address the problem of porn addiction without guilt or shame and rely on Jesus to heal as we meet to worship, learn, hold each other accountable, and pray.

This is a 22 week high accountability program designed to enable men to eradicate pornography use, as well as other sexual sin, from their lives.  We meet weekly for 3 hours and address the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of habitual sexual sin.  At a minimum, participants will need to commit to attending to all the meetings (with the exception of up to 3 for family/work commitments), doing short assignments,  and to blocking pornography from all electronic devices.

Healing Path Open House

Healing Path Open House at The River Church Community. David Alvarez will be speaking on the issue of SHAME.

The shame that binds many of us is experienced as an all-pervasive sense that I am flawed and defective as a human being. Shame makes us feel worthless, fills us with a sense of failing and falling short as a human being. It comes with condemnation and internal self-critical voices. I’ll talk about how we got it and how to get free of it.

Hope you can join me for this time of worship, teaching and prayer. Attendance is free and the event is open to all.

Healing the Father Wound (co-ed)

  • The River Church Community (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Comfort of God Conference Series: Healing the Father Wound

“Father” is such a powerful word. For some it brings fond memories of care, love and kindness. For others, disappointment, indifference, frustration, pain, anger and even rage. Our hope is to help men and women identify the wound that needs healing and to help you face your pain and hurt so God the Father can repair the damage done to you.

This conference will be led by Pastor David Alvarez (www.the-healingpath.org) who has spoken nationally and internationally about the healing of the father wound. He understands the wound, it’s effects and the Father’s desire to restore to each one the “spirit of adoption” that allows us to learn how to be sons and daughters of a loving Father.

Friday, February 19th / 7PM-9PM and Saturday, February 20th / 9AM-1PM

For more information or questions of concern contact David at david@the-river.org
