UPDATE: COVID-19 and The River Church


Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, Sunday gatherings at Whitley Road Elementary School in Watauga, Texas have become suspended until further notice. This suspension is a result of the closure of the Keller Independent School District and strictly precautionary. In the coming weeks, The River Church will follow the recommendations of the CDC and gather again at Whitley Road only under the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control. In the meantime, The River Church will continue to act as the Body of Christ in several ways. We desire to use this season as an opportunity to grow closer in spirit and begin to create a more tightly knit form of community with each other. Below are some ways that we will provide our members with access to teaching and worship as well as resources we will provide to help members stay connected. 

  • Each Sunday at 10:30 AM, we will be providing a live stream our regular Sunday services that will include a short worship session and a short teaching from our current series Jesus the King. Please visit our Facebook and YouTube pages to watch!
  • For updates throughout the week, visit our website, Instagram, and Facebook pages to hear from Pastor Michael regarding what is happening at The River Church during this season as well as find information and resources relevant to our kid's programs and small groups.
  • Get connected with others on our Facebook page, The River Church DFW. This group is a wonderful space where members and others can share, pray, and connect digitally while we wait for the virus to pass through our community. 

Most importantly, we want to encourage the members of The River Church to direct their attention upward during this troubling season. Psalms 17:6 tells us that the Lord hears our prayers, and although we face the troubles of a rapidly changing world, Psalm 102:27 says of the Lord, "but you remain the same, and your years will never end." 

River Church family, let's look to the Lord and use this season as an opportunity to become a more closely-knit Body of Christ as we wait for the passing of COVID-19 in the United States. 

"For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations." - Psalm 100:5


If you decide to visit us, here is what you can expect:

  • Casual dress attire.

  • A welcoming environment. 

  • Authentic and comfortable worship.

  • Teaching derived from the Bible.

  • Programs for children and adults. 

  • A community of believers that desires to be like Christ.

"If you are looking for a church home, this is a church that welcomes you like family. The people are wonderful and there is always a great message. Sundays are my favorite day of the week thanks to The River!"

"I would highly recommend this church to anyone who is feeling lost, empty, or just looking to connect and grow with God.  At The River I have had a chance to build my relationship with Christ. It has been an awesome experience."
