Poland Mission Team Support

Greg and Erin Skrobarczk, our missions partners serving with King’s Kids International in Warsaw, Poland, are hosting a Family Camp the first week of August. Rivertree will send a team of 6 people to help with the camp. Our team will be traveling to Poland August 3-12.  We need your support in three huge ways!  

1) Please pray for this team as they travel and serve at the camp.  We need your intercession in prayer for this to be a safe and fruitful trip! Please also pray for God to move in a powerful way at the camp!

2) We are still in need of a significant amount of financial support to send this team. If you are able to give financially, please follow this link to give online. Please select "Missions/Poland Mission.”

3) We need families from Rivertree to help sponsor Polish families to attend Family Camp!  The cost for an adult is $180, for a child is $160, or $550 for a family.  If you are able to provide a scholarship, please follow this link to give online. Please select "Missions/Poland Mission.”

Thank you for your support of camp and this team as they respond to the Great Commission to "go and make disciples of all nations!"

Lincoln House- Professionals Needed

IMG_8350.jpg

We are in need of a few professionals to help us on the Lincoln House!  If you or someone you know is a certified HVAC, Electrician, Plumber, or Roofer, we could use your help!  Please contact our Missions Pastor at justin@myrivertree.org!

Rivertree helped one of our local Mission Partners, Lincoln Village, purchase a house directly behind Lincoln Academy!  God has provided the opportunity for us to partner with Lincoln in the purchase and renovation of this home as it's one of the last un-renovated houses in the neighborhood where they work and serve.  Over the course of the next few months, we would like to raise the finances and mobilize teams to turn this house into a home!

We need volunteers over the next few weeks to help renovate the home!  If you can sling a sledge hammer, sweep, paint, or if you have more specific skills (electrical, plumbing, etc...), we need you!  Please email our Missions Pastor at justin@myrivertree.org to find our about our upcoming work days.

Lincoln Village Preservation Corporation (LVPC) was formed in 2002 and has two main areas of service: Lincoln Academy (LA) and Lincoln Village Ministry (LVM). Through both of these areas, LVPC provides opportunities for improved living conditions, access to personalized education and enrichment, and general aid to the Lincoln Community. The vision of LVPC is that the lives of all families and communities would be redeemed and transformed by the ongoing power of Christ through the body of believers.

LVPC serves the community of the Lincoln Mill area now called Lincoln Village. In this community, poverty is widespread with women and children being disproportionately affected. These disadvantaged children face daily obstacles including physical, emotional, social, and psychological hardships. By making a long term commitment to this community and by participating in every aspect of life, LVPC desires to break the bonds of generational poverty and transform lives for Christ.

Under LVPC’s leadership, they currently have purchased and refurbished over 20 historical properties within the Lincoln Mill Village area to provide safe and affordable housing for residents of the area. They have also purchased the Lincoln School building and started a private school for the children of the neighborhood. Their scope of work encompasses a wide variety of areas within the community. They attempt to meet Lincoln Village residents’ spiritual, educational, medical and housing needs, as well as provide support in a variety of other areas. They have built strong relationships and continue to seek ways to revitalize and bring God’s redemption to this community.
