Men’s Retreat Postponed

Due to several factors, including a lack sign-ups, the October men’s retreat is being postponed until sometime in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience. We are excited for something, possibly next spring, though.

The Gospel Project

We’re so excited to announce that starting September 22, 2019 we will be launching our new curriculum: The Gospel Project for Kids! The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything.

We just printed three different RVTA sticker designs, so grab one and stick on your car, water bottle or whatever else you want! These stickers was designed to identify fellow Reality Ventura Kingdom Family members specifically for the purpose of connection and prayer. When you see this sticker, pause for a moment and pray for that person! See a sticker, pray a prayer! 

Book Spotlight

In light of our current Kingdom Family series in the book of Ephesians, our featured Book Spotlight is When the Church Was a Family by Joseph Hellerman that we want to encourage everyone to purchase and read.

Spiritual formation occurs primarily in the context of community. But as the modern cultural norm of what social scientists call “radical American individualism” extends itself, many Christians grow lax in their relational accountability to the church. Faith threatens to become an “I” not “us,” a “my God” not “our God” concern.

When the Church Was a Family calls believers back to the wisdom of the first century, examining the early Christian church from a sociohistorical perspective and applying the findings to the evangelical church in America today. With confidence, author Joseph Hellerman writes intentionally to traditional church leaders and emerging church visionaries alike, believing what is detailed here about Jesus’ original vision for authentic Christian community will deeply satisfy the relational longings of both audiences.
