Standing with Israel
At River’s Cross you are invited to PRAY, PURSUE ONENESS, and GROW IN UNDERSTANDING of the people-group through whom God birthed His Son and revealed His ways to the world. This is the ministry of “Standing with Israel.”
Intercede for Israel, and The Jewish People
Isaiah 62:6: "O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray to the LORD day and night for the fulfillment of his promises. Take no rest, all you who pray. Give the LORD no rest until he makes Jerusalem the object of praise throughout the earth. "

- Lift up Israel during “the prayers of the people” at each Sunday’s service.
We PURSUE ONENESS
Celebrate Shabbat along with Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus)
John 17:20: "I pray not only for these, but also for those who will trust in me because of their word, that they may all be one. Just as you, Father, are united with me and I with you, I pray that they may be united with us, so that the world may believe that you sent me.”
- Find out more about the 2 Messianic congregations that worship on the Peninsula on Friday evenings.
- Learn more about Christianity’s Jewish roots and stand in unity with Messianic Believers as we are welcome to attend Erev Shabbat Services at Congregation Zion’s Sake or B’Nai Avraham Messianic Fellowship
We GROW IN UNDERSTANDING
Learn about the Biblical Jewish Festivals as they shed light on Christian principles and prophecy
Lev. 23:2: "Tell the people of Isra'el: 'The designated times of THE LORD which you are to proclaim as holy convocations are My designated times.”
