Small Groups


We believe that the best way to grow in your walk with God is to surround yourself with meaningful relationships. And that's why we value community so much at the River. Life is better together. 

So whether today is your first time, or River Church has been your home for years, the easiest way to start meeting people is through a Small Group. These are so much more than just a quick handshake or a hello at church: Small Groups are where you can develop deep and lasting friendships that go beyond a simple Sunday morning, and this is what makes a church family so relevant and valuable to your life. We believe life happens in circles not in rows.
