Welcome To The River

The River exists to Transform lives, Renew hope

and together Pursue God with passion.

In a very short time, God has used this movement of people who call themselves the River, to assist in building a new local fire department, to provide events that reach thousands of people, to renew hope in people to pursue lifelong desires, put marriages back together, and much more!

We are a group of people contributing to something bigger than ourselves.

The River offers a modern worship experience that is Bible based and full of energy. We provide vibrant children’s and student ministries and tremendous Community Groups.

 If you haven’t visited yet, please plan to visit. You can do that by checking out our plan to visit page.

Plan A Visit
When you come to the River here’s what you can expect from the moment we greet you at the doors:
A relaxed and friendly atmosphere and no dress code. We believe God cares more for the condition of your hear than the outward appearance. You may dress up or come in jeans and a T-Shirt. Whatever makes you comfortable.
Greeted by people who genuinely care about you. We will not embarrass you by putting you on the spot. We realize that many people want to “check out” a church and be “anonymous” and that’s fine! So grab some free coffee, water and or doughnut and hang out.Experience an energetic atmosphere where you’re accepted.
We will help guide you and your children to our wonderful adult and children’s services.
Service Time: Sundays @ 10:30 AM

Your child matters to you.

Block 738: An ministry for Jr. High and High School Students
We are never more like God than when we give, “For God so loved the world He gave…” John 3:16.
Every time we make a decision to be generous, we learn that God will not be out-given. We will reap what we sow.
