River of Life offers a variety of Adult Ministries to help equip and encourage every believer in his or her faith. Whether it is in a life group setting or in a specific group, which offers a safe place with confidentiality, a Bible study, an equipping class or enjoying a special event, you will find a place to belong, grow, and enjoy relationships with other men and women.
In order for River of Lifers to grow in their faith, it is important to have continued Biblical instruction in a format that allows participants to explore topics in depth. This is why we offer Equipping classes to help you become more fully equipped in your journey to become a fully devoted follower of Christ. Classes are offered at various times throughout the year.

The Bible says in Ephesians 5, that each person has a role in the marriage relationship. Husbands are called to love their wives as Christ loves the church. Wives are called to honor, respect and submit to their husbands. A realistic understanding of those roles and how you each look at them, along with an open discussion about other very relevant topics in the marriage relationship will equip you to make your marriage what God intended it to be; a covenant between two people and God, with God at the center of everything.
Each couple will need to complete a minimum of 12 hours of premarital counseling. This includes 6-8 hours of class time, completing the marriage inventory (PREPARE) and 4-6 individual sessions with a marriage coach couple to discuss the results of the inventory. Couples must complete the marriage preparation course three months before their wedding date. Please call the church office at 763-441-7527 to sign up.
