The River

Welcome Home

The River 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)


Against the Stream HD

"Against the Stream" is the title of The River's current sermon series. Noah persevered against the stream of the culture of his day to build an ark as God commanded. We, like Noah, are called to go against the stream of our culture and live as the Bible commands. This sermon series explores the various issues that we must overcome as we strive to live out our Christian faith.

The River Is Having A
Neon Eggnite

Come to this stupendously, fabulous, incredible, awesome event on Friday, April 3rd, from 6 pm to 8 pm at The River. There will be free food and prizes. Everyone is welcome, so bring all your friends and neighbors.


We worship the Lord through song, prayer, and teaching. Come and join us. Our Sunday worship services are at 9 and 11 am.


We receive powerful Biblical teaching every Sunday. It teaches us how to grow our faith, and it empowers us to reach the world for Jesus Christ.


We serve each other, our community, and beyond. As we serve, our hearts and minds are turned away from ourselves and toward the needs of others.
