“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” – Matthew 9:36-38
Here at River City we believe that compassion was and IS one of the key characteristics of Jesus and something that He exemplified for us in His time here on earth. Compassion is one of the most prominent characteristics we see from Jesus in His time on earth and it’s our desire to reflect HIS HEART in all that we do in our ministry and compassion efforts.
For years River City has partnered with ministries across San Antonio to provide a Thanksgiving meals to families in need. The need has only been made greater due to the COVID19 pandemic. Help us provide a Thanksgiving Meal for a family in need this year, if you are able. Our goal is to provide for 150 families for those in the Glen Neighborhood, families with Agora Ministries, and families with the No Strings Attached Ministry. For more information on what is needed and to sign up for a family go to the link below.
