Where does River City Church meet?
We do not have our own building yet, so currently we have weekly gatherings in the gymnasium at Highland Elementary School in Riverside. (Your GPS or Google Maps possibly still calls it Riverside Elementary). We meet every Sunday at 9:30am, and once a month we gather for lunch afterward. Check the Calendar page for upcoming gatherings and meals.
Does River City Church have children’s ministry options for Sunday gatherings?
Yes! While we don’t have a nursery for infants, we do have children’s ministry classes for second grade and under. We also have short story time for kids 12 and under before the message, which is led by one of the pastors and ties into the sermon. For the children who stay in the service, we have Bible-based activity sheets with clipboards they are welcome to use.
We will all sit together for the opening songs, then the pastor will dismiss the younger ones to class, where they will do Bible-centered activities, videos, and stories.
What is a weekly gathering like?
Guests often start showing up soon after 9:00am on Sunday mornings, because we have fresh-roasted coffee, tea and other drinks, and locally baked goods available. The gathering consists of a few songs, a scripture reading, children’s story-time, and a 30-40 minute sermon from the Bible. We practice open communion on a monthly basis, and if you’ve made a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, you’re welcome to participate with us regardless of what church you call home.
