Living a Life of Significance

At some point in time, every single one of us asks the question: What is the key to making our lives significant? Join us in opening up Scripture to find out how we can live lives that have eternal, positive, and lasting impact.


Do This in Remembrance of Me

Do This in Remembrance of Me At the very first communion service Jesus said “Do this in remembrance of Me.” Communion is a time of remembering. This Sunday as we gather come and learn about the importance of not only remembering but proclaiming what Jesus has done for us and in our lives. We will share in communion, but we also want to have a time of sharing with each other How Jesus has impacted our lives. Sharing our memories to encourage others as we live out our faith as testimony of...


When God Says Wait

In our world of instant everything, even the slightest delays, the least bit of waiting can cause people to lose it. But in Acts chapter 1 – Jesus told his disciples to go to Jerusalem. . . and wait for the Father’s promise. Waiting is sometimes necessary, it is sometimes therapeutic, it gives us time to listen, reflect, and grow. Come and learn with us how we can find peace, joy and growth when God says “wait.” Pastor Dan Jetto. #RiverRockChurchMN


A WELL Life is full of Faith, Friends and Farewells (2 Cor 13:11)

Listen to "A WELL Life is full of Faith, Friends and Farewells" Pastor Chris’ last message as the Pastor of River Rock Church. As we follow Jesus on the narrow road of life He leads us to various places to grow in faith, serve Him and to learn from the experiences. Some people live in the same place all their lives while others move around for new jobs, education, opportunities, or even better weather. Some feel forced to move because of circumstances beyond their control or to stay close...


Five Keys to Getting your Needs Met (Phil 4:13-23)

The Apostle Paul ends his letter to the Philippians with some great promises for us to claim when we are in need. We love to claim Philippians 4:19, "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." If you look at the context of the paragraph it appears this is a conditional promise for those that have been faithful to give. What else does God's Word say to us when we are seeking His help to meet our needs? Listen to find out and be encouraged to...


Seven Things You Can Do When Life Still Seems Overwhelming (Phil 4:10-13)

Our days are full of opportunities, responsibilities and difficulties that can make life seem overwhelming. Maybe you struggle with work, health, relationships, kids, finances, faith or something else and you just feel you can’t overcome. Be encouraged with seven things you can do when life seems overwhelming. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN


Experiencing True Freedom in Christ (Gal 5:1)

True Freedom in Christ is based on what Jesus has already done and not only for the few who seem to do everything right. When we place our faith in the Savior we are adopted into God’s family with all the security and benefits that brings. Life is better when we live in His grace instead of religious legalism. We also remember the America’s ideal of a nation under God and the freedoms we still enjoy are worth celebrating. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN


Help to Overcome Anxiety (Phil 3:15-4:9)

We have just endured one of the most anxious years of our lives. Unfortunately, the world is still full of trouble and sickness. The Bible offers hope and help to enable you to overcome those helpless attitudes and paralyzing feelings anxiety brings. Listen and be encouraged with seven ways to overcome anxiety. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN


Faith that Survives the Fire*

In the book of Daniel there is an event in which three men, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, are thrown into a fire because of their refusal to bow to the King’s demand to worship him. The threat of a painful death at the hands of men did not deter their stand for God. In fact their “faith” saved them. Come join us as we learn about the power of faith in a believer’s life. Faith that can sustain us even in the fire. Pastor Dan Jetto #RiverRockChurchMN


Loved, Chosen and Called to Belong to Jesus (Rom 1:1-7)

Everyone wants to belong and to be loved. Those who are loved want to know the opportunities and expectations of the relationship. Listen and be encouraged as we look at how believers are loved, called and chosen to belong to Jesus. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN


Trusting God on the Adventure of Life

Life is like a rollercoaster full of unsettling ups and downs with plenty of frightening twists and turns. Covid or some other situation may be creating an anxious situation in your life right now.

Onward Christian Soldier

It’s Memorial Day weekend – a time to remember those who have given their lives fighting for our peace and freedom.

A Time for Everything

Time. How are you spending the precious time you are allotted? Who has God put in your life to spend time with and care for? What does God Word teach us about investing our time wisely? How does God reward us when we prioritize time with Him? This is a great topic for Mother’s Day and we realize that while many of have been blessed by their mother’s time, some have never been given the opportunity to be that child or have children. Watch this message and be encouraged to value the different...


Lord Have Mercy - How God Reveals His Love for Us

When the blinders come off and we are able to see our lost and sinful condition in stark contrast to God’s purity and holiness we feel hopeless and helpless. There is nothing we can do on our own to fix our desperate condition, except cry out “Lord have Mercy!” Mercy is more than just God not treating us as our sins deserve. God in His mercy chooses not to keep record of our sin instead showing us love and helping us in our time of need. Be encouraged to experience and share God’s mercies...


God Created us to Do Good

God created us, We are God’s masterpiece, We are created anew in Christ Jesus to do good works. We are created with with different personalities, Spiritual gifts, talents, resources and experiences. As the body of Christ we need each other to accomplish His purposes. The Lord gives us the choice to grow in Him and use what He has equipped us with or to just let it sit on the shelf while we waste our days away. The Bible makes it clear that God chooses to use some people more than others. In...

Why Don’t You Live So God Can Use You?

We get to live in grace and live by faith and that sets us free to enjoy living with purpose in Christ. Even more exciting is knowing that we have been created to do good works – to accomplish Jesus purposes and make a difference in the world.

Jesus Resurrection Upheld

The fact that Jesus has risen from the dead is the backbone of our faith, the truth that gives us eternal hope and the good news that we share. Repeatedly the Bible shows that to be saved from our sins and welcomed into God’s family that we must believe that Jesus is Lord and that He was raised from the dead. Jesus Resurrection Upheld is a perfect message to encourage you and for you to share with others. Pastor Chris Teien #RiverRockChurchMN
