There are many opportunities for you to connect with others through the various ministries we offer. We love God and we love His people no matter your background or circumstances. We hope you will be with us in one of our services very soon.

What should I wear at The River?
Dress comfortably. Some people dress up, but most wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday mornings. Don't worry about what you wear, as you'll never feel out of place when you come casual.

Where do I park?
As our guest, we ask that you please turn your flashers on when approaching the parking lot, and we have parking staff looking for you who will direct you to a parking spot designated for visitors at the front of the building. Handicap parking spaces are available in the front, next to the door. Plenty of additional parking space is available to the left side of the building.
