Friday nights at 7:00 ** Youth group will be on Zoom until further notice. Contact us for login information.**
Youth group is for kids from 12 years old through high school. Parents are welcome and encouraged to come.
Men's Prayer ** Our prayer meeting will be on Zoom until further notice. **
In the NT, the church met often for prayer. They understood the darkness of their times and the urgency of their mission to reach the world. In this same spirit we meet together to seek the Lord for what is beyond our strength. We want to be desperate before Him. Each Friday (except for the weeks we have Men of God) the men of the church meet for prayer at 6 a.m. Lock arms with us as we battle for ourselves, our families, our church, and our world!
Acts 1:14 They all joined together constantly in prayer…
Acts 2:42 They devoted themselves to…prayer.
WOW (Women of the Word) Meet-up Fellowship
April 11 – 8:30 a.m. on Zoom
It is always encouraging, comforting, and motivating to get encouragement from other women! Join the Rio women every other month to enjoy a relaxed, spontaneous time to hear and share what is on our hearts, what God is teaching us, and to share our prayer requests. Don't miss this time to connect with other women and, at the same time, be strengthened in your own faith!
Due to the coronavirus and the recommendations of the CDC, our Easter potluck is canceled.

(Also: May 11)
The marriage class will be held online on Zoom. Click here to attend.
Dove and Holly are leading an eight-week marriage class on Mondays (once a month). It is not too late to join in! It is a time set aside with our spouses to be intentional, enjoy each other, and go through some practical exercises as couples. It also provides a little time to share and listen to what others are experiencing.
Online Parenting Conference (BtoZ Parenting)
Tuesday nights at 7 - Starting April 14
There is nothing more precious to us than our kids and building into them is one of the best investments we can make. You may have read 25 books on parenting and been to a dozen conferences, but all of us need to be reminded of the value of our efforts, encouraged in the difference we are making, and refreshed in the helpful principles of the Bible. We are committed to raising disciples of Jesus. The souls we have in our own homes are the ones we will disciple the most thoroughly and imprint the most extensively. Let’s take some time to recommit ourselves to doing the very best we can with the lives God has entrusted to us. We’d love to have every parent there! Even if you might have a kid in the next few years this could be a great time to start thinking about these things as well.
Due to coronavirus, this free conference will be online. Please watch the online video for the week before each meeting. The meetings will be on Zoom and will last for 1 ½ hours.
Please watch the video online before the discussion (Both video and audio options are available):

Church Camp Out
** A decision has not been made yet related to the camp-out and the coronavirus. **
We are going to have an awesome church camp-out at Black Bear Group Campground near Cloudcroft. We’ll fellowship over a potluck dinner on Friday night at 6 and have some s’mores. The other meals are on your own. The cost is $15/family. We had to reserve a minimum of two nights, so we also have Thursday night reserved. Feel free to head up early if you’d like an extra night of camping.
Directions: From Cloudcroft, turn south onto NM130. Continue for 1 mile and turn left (east) onto Forest Road 24B (just across the road from the Deerhead Campground entrance). The entrance will be on your right-hand side.
Dicipleship Training Camp
July 8-12, 2020
** A decision has not been made yet related to DTC and the coronavirus. **
Our next high school conference will be the evening of July 8 – breakfast on July 12. We’ll meet at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, WY. We’ll be looking into the truths that help us know that scripture can be trusted and followed. If the foundation of our faith is not solid, we risk the crumbling of other areas of our lives. Come fortify your beliefs to build into the health of your future.
We'll have our church-family camp in the summer of 2021! Dates to be announced.
We have recently started providing sign language (ASL) interpretation at the Westside church. We hope this can be the first step toward ministering to a largely under-served portion of our community. Please invite anyone you know who could benefit from this service. If you have any questions, please contact Felicia or Kathleen.
