Next Steps at The River
Now that you’ve decided that The River may be the church for you there are several steps you can take to get to know the church and those who call The River home. We love to share with others about The River so don't hesitate to ask lots of questions.
Check out the Youth and Kids Groups
Have your children visit the River Kids group and the Youth Momentum group and see how they like them.
Check out the Adult Groups
Check out the different kinds of groups at The River. The River has study groups, ministry groups, life groups, and fellowship groups.
There are three study groups. Two of them meet on Sunday mornings and the third meets on Wednesday mornings.
The Adopt-a-block ministry has adopted two blocks in the town of Frankford and is severing those who live on these blocks and developing relationships with them.
The River prayer group meets the second and fourth Tuesdays. This group prays for the church, its staff, its members, and whatever and whomever is on their hearts.
Fellowship with a Purpose meets at the church on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. This creative group makes items such as prayer shawls, baby wraps, and knit caps for nursing homes, hospitals, and others in need.
The Hospitality Team manages the parking lot, welcomes visitors and regulars alike, staffs the information both, services the refreshment area, provides seating assistance in the sanctuary, and whatever else needs to be done to make Sundays work.
The River is growing, so it's important to be in a life group where you can experience true Christian community. The River has a number of life groups located around the area that the church serves. See the adult ministries page for more information, and visit a group.
There are two fellowship groups at The River. One is the men's group which meets on the second Saturday of every month at 8:00 am for good fellowship, breakfast, and conversation. It's a great way to meet other men in the church. The other group is Seniors at the River. Check out their ministry page to see all of the interesting things they are doing.
Discover The River
Discover The River is a class that Pastor Mike leads for those who are interested in The River. He gives an overview of the Wesleyan Church as a denomination and The River Church here in Roxana. He provides information about the staff, the ministries, and life in general at The River. This class is a good place to meet others who are also interested in The River. It's a time to get to know Paster Mike and ask him questions about The River. This class is for those who are interested in becoming a member of The River, and it is also for those who just want to learn more about The River before they can make a decision about becoming a member.
If you would like to know more about what it means to be a Christian, or if you've been away for awhile, you should consider the Discover Faith class. It’s a four-week discussion based class that meets on Sunday mornings. It introduces the four mainstays of the Christian faith, which are Salvation, The Bible, Prayer, and Worship. This is a very welcoming class. You will enjoy the time.
