We Will Feast!

We Will Feast!

This Lord’s Day we will be learning an new hymn, “We Will Feast in the House of Zion” from Sandra McCracken’s Psalms project. Take time to listen to this hymn as you prepare for the Lord’s Day and the Lord’s Table.

We Will Feast in the House of Zion

Chorus
We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

We will not be burned by the fire
He is the LORD our God
We are not consumed, by the flood
Upheld, protected, gathered up (Chorus)

In the dark of night, before the dawn
My soul, be not afraid
For the promised morning, oh how long?
Oh God of Jacob, be my strength (Chorus)

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the Faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together, bring shalom. (Chorus)

Great News!

Great News!

As you may know, our host church, St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, is currently closed because of weather related flooding due to broken water lines, leaving us (and them) temporarily homeless. But the Lord graciously provided us several offers of temporary meeting space from churches and organizations around the city. Offers for which we are very grateful.

One of these is from the The Arkansas Dream Center. The Dream Center is committed to “reaching out to those in need in communities across the state of Arkansas, serving their needs, and restoring their dreams.” They have graciously offered us the use of their Community Center near Downtown, on Daisy L Gatson Bates Drive next to Philander Smith College. They have a track record of effective ministry to our city.

Until repairs are completed we will meet on Sunday evenings from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm for worship and fellowship at The Arkansas Dream Center located at 1116 Daisy L Gatson Bates Drive in Little Rock.  You can also join us on Facebook Live @RiverCityARP or on YouTube.

  • Take exit 2A; head south on S. Chester St.
  • Go approximately 0.5 mile to Daisy L Gatson Bates Drive.
  • Turn right onto Daisy L Gatson Bates Drive and go approximately 0.1 miles.

Come West, Young Man!

Come West, Young Man!

Long before Horace Greely penned those now famous words, “Go West Young Man,” the Apostle Paul heeded the call of the Man of Macedonia to go west to plant churches on a whole new continent.  He had formulated another plan, he thought he knew where he was headed, but the Holy Spirit changed his itinerary.

And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” Acts 16:9

Paul answered the call to ‘go west’ and the gospel was planted began to take root in Europe.  The cultures there were very different. Support was uncertain.  And Paul had to adapt his usual modus operandi to engage cities without synagogues or significant Jewish enclaves.  But he went.

What about you?  You have your plans to serve, but what if God is calling you to “go west?”  What if God is calling you to Arkansas?  Come over and help us plant and grow Reformed Churches in the west.  

River City Reformed Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, is looking for a church planter intern/associate pastor to work with an experienced pastor, Howard Wheeler, to increase engagement in our community, share the load of preaching/teaching, and provide pastoral leadership for our growing congregation.
