Here is a quick look at what you can expect when you visit our church.

"Everyone was more friendly than I thought they would be."
Here at River of Life, we'll make sure the first face you see when you approach the church has a smile on it.  Whether you need childcare or are looking for a place for yourself, a greeter will be nearby to help you get where you need to go.

"The message stirred me up and caused me to see things in a new light."
You will find the messages at River of Life to be positive and practical while at the same time challenging and fresh.  Here at River we are not about religious rules and regulations, we are about truth and freedom that comes from truth.  Our messages are designed to show you who you are in Christ Jesus.  Our desire is that they help you advance closer in your relationship with God.  We want to empower people to live dynamic and effective Christian lives that are full of faith and purpose.

"I can wear what's comfortable."
Life is more important than what you wear and we get that here at River of Life.  So come as you are and feel at home.  You'll find a warm, casual and welcoming environment where an array of dress styles can be found.  There is no pressure here to look a certain way.  We want your focus to be on the Lord, not on the clothing of those around you.
