God, Government, And The Gospel

Coming up on Friday, April 24th at 6pm we have Secret Church 2020 presented by David Platt. For the last 10 years Secret Church has been a time to gather together both physically and virtually for an intensive 6 hour study of God’s focusing on one topic, this year that topic being ‘God, Government, and the Gospel’.


Why do we gather for six hours? Great question, at the heart of this Secret Church both in name and structure  it is inspired by the underground church around the world. Christians that gather in secret because the governing authorities deem it illegal to gather in Jesus' name and learn about Jesus. And if you're risking your life to meet with other believers and learn about Jesus, you want to learn as much as you can while you are there because you never know when you can meet again! Some of these meetings can be up to 12hours long. Platt calls this, “drinking from the fire hydrant of the word.” So we meet for 6 hours and go through what the Bible has to say about a topic. You're not going to take it all in at once, but you get to listen to biblical teaching with up to 60,000 others around the world, inspired by the persecuted church. With your registration you will receive a bound book full of key points and scripture that Platt talks about so that you can go back over that in the days, weeks, months to follow. 


The River usually hosts Secret Church each year and we gather a group, this year due to COVID-19  and restrictions on group gatherings, Secret Church is a completely online event. Which means you get to be a part of this right from your couch at home! This is an awesome opportunity to pursue God through his word, and what better time than now.
