Welcome Home

This is a place of hope, meaning, and purpose. Come as our guest, but become more. Be part of a movement that is changing lives.

Our Mission

Helping people know Jesus, grow in faith, and go into the world equipped to serve.

Sundays 9 & 11 am

Come worship the Lord Jesus with us. You may come as a stranger, but you'll leave as family.

We Pray

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thes. 5:16-18)


"A Camouflage Christmas - Seeing the True Meaning of Christmas"

What's A Camouflage Christmas? It's The River's Christmas sermon series that starts December 1st.

Camo Christmas Logo

Satan wants to distract us from seeing the true meaning of Christmas. For some, the distraction is the busyness of the Season. For others, it's the disappointment of the memories hoped for that never were. Satan is working hard to camouflage Christmas so that we miss the true meaning of God with us—Immanuel.
