Here’s what to expect…
WHY WE EXIST
You simply have a place to belong. It is a natural human need that all of us have to find a place of community. Where we can simply be without expectations to perform or behave in a certain way. We exist so that you have a place to belong…
…so that you can believe in Jesus. Believe He is who He said He was – the Son of God, who rescues us from our mistakes and terrible ideas and makes a way for us to live an abundant life, full of grace and freedom…
…so that you can become all He intended you to be. When you become a Christ follower, He doesn’t expect you to be something entirely different by way of wiring and nature. When you become a follower of Christ, you become more free and more fully who you already have been.
Ministries at the River
We provide age-appropriate worship experiences, a place for kids to connect with their peers, and opportunities for families to worship and serve together.
We provide opportunities for middle school and high school students to grow in their faith with Jesus, connect with each other, and serve in our church and our community.
We love worship. It is a method for us to show God our affection and a moment for us to listen to what God might say to us. Also music is just really, really fun.
We want to connect men to men and grow them as disciples.
We want to encourage and provide opportunities for women to connect more deeply with Jesus and with each other.
We work in Guatemala, Uganda, and throughout Kalamazoo because we want to share the love and hope of Jesus to our neighbors around the world and across the street.
