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.

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; it is also for those who just want to learn more about The River before they can make a decision about becoming a member.

Discover Youth and Kids Groups

Have your children visit the River Kids group and the Youth Momentum group and see how they like them.

Discover Serving

Ministry Groups

The Adopt-a-block ministry has adopted two blocks in the town of Frankford and is serving 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.
