The River



At The River, our “Streams” are small groups designed to build relationships within the local body of believers. We understand that attending service for only two hours a week is not what God intended for His Church. We need each other, and it is important that we love, share, grow and learn from one another.
Our Streams are all sermon-based, which means that no matter which group you are a part of, we are all studying the same material each week. This gives us an opportunity to dig a little deeper into the message from each Sunday!

Interested in leading or hosting a Stream? We’d love to talk more with you. We believe that God equips those that he calls, so if you’ve felt God leading you this direction, don’t be afraid to reach out and take that first step.

Church Center app.

Through the Church Center App, you can check-in your kids, sign-up for classes and events, give and join a Stream!


Serving is an important part of our walk with Christ. Jesus was the perfect model of a servant. At The River, we have lots of teams you can serve with. Explore our teams and find where you may fit!
