About Us

Home For The Whole Family

The River is committed to your family. We want every generation in your family to connect with the heart of God and discover His plan for them. Our Kid’s and Student Ministries purpose to raise a generation of leaders and world-changers who know the Father and know who they are in Jesus. We have created fun, safe environments for your children and believe they will want to come back every week.

Take A Step

At The River, we want you to encounter God, find community and discover your purpose. We believe it takes all three aspects to experience abundant life. We’ve got some great next steps that will help you get there.

Next Steps

You’ll Have Fun. We Promise.

We believe laughter is good medicine. We also believe Jesus intended us to have fun on the journey and enjoy it together. So, we plan for a lot of fun and laughter. And we think you’ll even have fun during service.
