Below we have a list of all of the ministries that we offer here at The River Church. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when joining one of our ministry programs. We believe that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool when growing to be more like Jesus. The encouragment of others is a powerful thing.

Community Group

Community groups at The River are a vital part of the life of The River Church.  They are small gatherings of 10-15 people who meet at different homes around our community to hang, eat and talk about life.  We have three semesters each year,  Fall, Spring, and Summer groups.  Send us an email and we will connect you to the perfect group for you! 

Children's Ministry

There is so much fun to be had at The River Kids. Every week, our leaders pour into the next generation - raising up world-changers who love God and his house!
Children are brought into a nurturing environment where they experience a structured plan for learning and development that is tailored for their age group.

I Love My City

We are passionate about serving our community and bringing hope to the broken. The River  Church partners  with different organizations. Our vision is to continue partnering with great organizations and exposing our church community to the privilege and responsibility of serving our city.

We want to make sure when you visit you are comfortable and that is all that matters to us. As long you are come through our doors, we want to make sure you feel loved and welcomed. If you ever need anything, always feel free to connect with us. We love to hear from our new visitors. "
