Sunday Morning Worship (9:30 AM)
Sermon Text: 2 Timothy 2:3-7
 Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.  No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.  An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.  It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.  Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. (ESV)
This Sunday we will be continuing our study through the book of 2 Timothy. Here in our text the Apostle Paul uses three analogies to teach us a right view of the gospel ministry – that of a soldier (v.3-4), an athlete (v.5), and a farmer (v.6). Doesn’t sound like the life of the minister of the gospel is expected to be easy, does it?
You may not be surprised to know that Paul uses these same analogies to teach us about the Christian life in general as well, so this passage doesn’t just apply to pastors!
We hope that you will join us for worship this Sunday! If you are unable to join us in-person, you can watch the live-stream of the service on our church’s YouTube channel (starting @ 9:30 AM PST): RVPC Sunday Morning Live-Stream
Sunday Night Bible Study (6 PM)
Please join us on Sunday nights @ 6 PM as we study through the Westminster Shorter Catechism together. This great summary of the Reformed faith has been a tremendous help in teaching and articulating the truths of the Reformed faith for hundreds of years now. So whether you are a new believer seeking instruction and understanding of the basics of the faith or a long-time believer who wants to brush up on these things, we invite you to join us on Sunday nights for this time of study and prayer!
