Reaffirming our commitment to God, Justice, and the ‘Beloved Community’* 

WHY:  In Nehemiah 9-10, the people of God return to Jerusalem and are convicted of their corporate sin of rejecting God’s ways. They are moved to repentance and decide to RE-UP their covenant with God and reaffirm their commitment to one another as the people of God. This is our intention for 2021.

We are in the midst of a new year, and significant events in our nation’s history - insurrection, Covid 19, racial justice demonstrations - require a renewing of our convictions as the people of God. Join The River Church Community from MLK day until the inauguration in a fast from food and an experience of seeking the Lord in prayer, lament, and celebration.

*MLK’s “Beloved Community” is a kingdom vision for a healthy society

WHEN: 72 hours from Monday, January 18 (MLK Day) to Wednesday, January 20 (Inauguration Day)
