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 due to its location and limited church presence.
Monthly public preview gatherings were held in November and December 2018 at Highland Elementary School in Riverside, and official bi-weekly gatherings began in January 2019.
River City Church exists because we want to see people in our own communities experience the same healing, forgiveness and grace that we’ve found in Jesus Christ. Jesus welcomed the outcast, the lonely and the disheartened because he had a message of hope and grace for those the world had beaten down. We don’t claim to be perfect, and we don’t expect you to be either.
