When families worship together, they develop bonds that go deeper than DNA. Come check out the message of Christ and discover a new lifestyle of love and celebration that turns on new energy, confidence, positive change and fulfillment.
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.
The River Community Garden was started in the summer of 2011. We have two goals. The first is to provide our community with fresh wholesome produce and in partnering with organizations like Meals on Wheels, American Heritage, and local soup kitchens, we are able to distribute our produce. Our second goal was to provide opportunities for local youth and residents to volunteer and learn the benefits of gardening and giving back. We have partnered with local youth organizations and school program directors in achieving this goal. As of the end of 2015 we have been able to donate over 1.5 tons of fresh produce to our local community. We have been blessed to have local business and organizations partner with us by donating monetary funds and equipment to help us maintain our garden. The following have given to help us achieve our goals: Walmart Foundation; Home Depot; Auburn Oaks Garden Center; The River Church Members; and Farm Boy.
