River City Church is a nondenominational church in Riverside Iowa, launched in January 2019 as a plant out of Grace Community Church. It conceptually began several years earlier as more and more Grace attenders from the Kalona, Riverside, Lone Tree area had a desire to begin a new church closer to home. In the winter of 2017 a leadership team formed and chose Riverside as the place to begin.
Monthly public preview gatherings were held in November and December 2018 at Highland Elementary School in Riverside, and weekly gatherings began at the school in April 2019.
River City Church exists because we want to be ambassadors (representatives) for the glory of God, the supremacy of Christ, and the unity of the Holy Spirit. That’s wordy, we know, but boiled down it means our lives should bring praise to God, recognizing that the person and work of Jesus Christ is what everything in the universe points to. It’s his Spirit, then, that unites us as the people of God.
We don’t claim to be perfect, and we don’t expect you to be either.
