Our relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ flows through us every minute of every day. At The River, we build foundations from which to grow as members of a community, families and individuals. And by sharing our faith in practical ways, we can inspire and improve the lives of our neighbors, from our hometowns and beyond.
Statistics say that when kids reach 18 years old, 95% of those who attend church – STOP! We want to decrease that percentage and give the young adults of the River an alternative to what they find on campuses and in their work places. VISION is a place where they can make friends with other young adults who are in the same set of circumstances. We provide a different voice and we are seeing results.
Collision is all about an encounter with God. We believe teens need a safe place to experience God and get to know Him at their level.
Our Rapids Services are high-energy, meet them where they are at services. We use games, fellowship and small group discussions to engage our Jr. High students in learning about how to transition their relationship with God to a deeply, personal one.
Our Children’s Ministry is for Newborns through the 5th Grade. We believe that God’s Word is for everyone and that it is important to instill in our young members a love for His Word. So with that in mind we have endeavored to put together a children’s ministry program that excites children about learning about God and His Word.
Forever Young is a ministry for our ladies who are over 65 years in age and want to learn how they can make a difference in their world. The bible study usually covers a specific book and treats it very much like a book club where the members come and share what they have learned and then learn from each other.

Costs for the classes are $25 for an eight week class and $15 for a four week class.
