Welcome to RiverPark Church!

RiverPark Church seeks to be a blessing to the community of Parkville and beyond. We want to build a community of people who genuinely care for and help one another as we grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
Here's what to expect today:
Our Service begins at 9:45 - There will be a couple of songs, a few announcements, and a short, engaging & practical-for-life message from the Bible. The service will last approximately 45 minutes, and there will be a chance for you to meet (from a 6ft distance) a few of the folks you're sitting around afterward.

There may be a few distractions along the way like the faithful train or wiggling kids. We're use to the train and we love kids.

Order of Worship

SONG: GOD SO LOVED
Come all you weary, come all you thirsty
Come to the well that never runs dry
Drink of the water, come and thirst no more

Come all you sinner, come find His mercy
Come to the table, He will satisfy
Taste of His goodness, find what You’re looking for

For God so loved the world that He gave us
His one and only Son to save us
Whoever believes in Him will live forever

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting there with open arms
See His open arms

For God so loved the world that He gave us
His one and only Son to save us
Whoever believes in Him will live forever
The power of hell forever defeated
Now it is well, I’m walking in freedom
For God so loved, God so loved the world

Praise God, praise God
From whom all blessings flow
Praise Him, praise Him
For the wonders of His love

For God so loved the world that He gave us
His one and only Son to save

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting, God so loved the world

Baptism Celebration Next Week - Sunday, Jan 31st @ noon

SONG: GOOD GOOD FATHER
Oh I’ve heard a thousand stories, of what they think You’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper, of love in the dead of night
And You tell me that You’re please, and that I’m never alone

You’re a good good Father
It’s who You are, it’s who you are, it’s who You are
And I’m loved by You
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

Oh and I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I’ve known we’re all searching for answers only You provide
‘Cause You know just what we need, before we say a word

Because You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways
You are perfect in all of Your ways to us

Oh this love so undeniable, I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable, I, I can hardly think
As You call me deeper still, as You call me deeper still
As You call me deeper still into love, love, love
