Our Strategy for Encouraging Life-Change

Reach Up

At The River, we’re reaching up to God as we gather weekly for the corporate worship experience, a spiritual hunger for the work of the Holy Spirit, and a desire to experience spiritual maturity.

Reach Out

We are reaching out to believers through Lifegroups because we believe life change happens in Lifegroups. We reach out to non-believers through loving, caring and genuine acts of kindness.

Reach In

We are reaching in through volunteering and serving others through the local community of faith. Also, we’re reaching into our selves through maturity in Christ.
