River of Life Assembly (RLA) is an Assemblies of God church in Estero, Florida with the mission of connecting generations to Jesus and to each other to see lives transformed by the power of Jesus Christ! We must be connected to Jesus because
He alone is the way, truth, and life. Jesus is our only access to God and hope of salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
We must be connected to each other because the generations need each other. The younger generation needs the wisdom, experience, and stability of the older. The older generation needs the youth, vitality, and potential of the younger.
It’s not an either/or, but a both/and. When we connect, everyone wins!
We do not believe in a fragmented church body where everyone goes their own way and does their own thing. We believe in doing church together – in worship, in discipleship, in ministry, in relationships.
Everyone is welcome at RLA. This is truly a family church with a warm and friendly atmosphere, energetic and contemporary worship, and Biblical and engaging messages.
What used to seem like an old-fashioned idea of all generations worshipping alongside each other has come full circle and is more relevant today than ever. RLA Alive on Sundays at 11:00am brings this effective model of multi-gen worship - kids, teens, and adults worshipping together – and updates it to the 21st century with nothing lost in translation.
Powerful music. Solid Word.
If you prefer a more traditional approach to worship with age-segragated ministry, RLA Live 9:30am is for you.
Sunday Night is ”the time” at River of Life for all generations to experience the awesome presence of God at the altar and draw closer to Him! This service consists of worship, a brief teaching, and passionate prayer.
Nothing crazy. Just the basics.
Sunday Night is from 5:00pm-6:00pm.
RLA Connect is one of the best ways to connect with others at River of Life. This is small groups done on a church-wide scale with the sanctuary turning into the epicenter of this small group network. Most groups meet in the sanctuary, while many of the younger groups meet in other parts of the facility. There's refreshments and a group for everyone! The small groups start each evening with a time of connection and group study followed by group prayer
and corporate prayer.
RLA Connect is every Wednesday at 6:45pm.
River of Life’s three big events: Bash, Legacy, and the Estero Christmas Celebration.
Bash is our summer outreach to kids and their families! It's a two days of pure fun for kids with a blow-out rally
at the end for the whole family!
Legacy is an outreach to families that we take wherever possible. It's a couple hours filled with activities, food, music, and the Word! We are currently doing the Legacy outreach in the Rosemary neighborhood of Bonita Springs.
The Estero Christmas Celebration is a family Christmas experience and is River of Life’s gift to the community.
