How can I connect?
One of the great joys of a church is living in community with other Christians—worshipping together, serving together, learning together, supporting and encouraging each other. There are a number of ways to build connections with other folks at River. We invite you to ask questions, get involved in worship and serving, and consider joining the River family!
Sunday Mornings. Come early or stay late to grab coffee and a pastry, and meet folks in the gathering area.
Serving. Serving in the church is a great idea, for many reasons... It's a way to give back. It's a path to spiritual growth through servanthood. And it’s fun to meet people by working alongside them. Once you begin serving, you can look for ways to serve that may better fit your unique gifts and talents. Please contact Dana Sutton to find out about available volunteer positions: email@example.com or 225-931-1275.
Wednesday Night. We believe that the way we become disciples of Jesus Christ and the way we grow in our faith is by learning and living the Gospel together in community. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ necessarily means that we are supposed to do this thing called Christianity together, not alone. And that’s where Wednesdays come into the picture.
We hope you will join us for this informal, River family gathering that has as its purpose the total transformation of our thinking and our living for the glory of God. We want together as a church to learn the Gospel and to learn how to live the Gospel.
