River City Church


Welcome to River City Church!

We are a new church gathering in the Riverside, Iowa, community at Highland Elementary School! We're made up of people from Riverside, Kalona, Iowa City, and surrounding communities, with a desire to glorify God and enjoy him both now and forever. We care about small town Iowa and want to see hope and healing come to those who feel abandoned and forgotten.



We’re hosting our first ever Easter Gathering at River City this year!

This weekend, we’ll be looking at John 20 and the story of Jesus approaching a group of disciples after his resurrection, stepping right into the middle of their doubts and fears and hesitations, and meeting them where they’re at. It’s our belief that this same living and now glorified Jesus Christ still steps into our fears and doubts, and meets us where we are today.

We’ll have an egg hunt for kiddos 12 and under after the service, so stick around afterward and get to know someone!

9:30am | Highland Elementary School | Riverside, IA

a study on the book of ecclesiastes

January 2019 — Present

We all experience moments in life where we aren’t sure what we’re living for. So we look to create meaning from our work or look for it in our relationships or accomplishments. Yet even the best of experiences — marriage and sex, a good movie, a great job, a wonderful vacation — can still leave us feeling empty inside. The book of Ecclesiastes challenges our perception of the things of earth, and helps us see that while they are gifts of God, they are not designed to give us meaning and purpose.


“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf: ‘Be reconciled to God.’”

 2 corinthians 5:20
