Plan A Visit

New to The River Church? Or Plan a first time visit? This is the best place to start



The River is a growing church in Alton, Il.  Our church exists to help people find hope, meaning, and their purpose in Christ.  Visit us this weekend and experience, River Church, for yourself!

When you come to the River Church,

you can expect to find:

We Worship

We worship Jesus by remembering all He has done for us on the cross. Our worship services includes preaching, teaching, singing, praying and celebrating baptism and communion, all of which are a response to the glory of our Lord and His love.


We Belong

The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation; we were made for relationship with God and for relationship with each other. We believe that a church is more than a building or weekend service; that is why we encourage all our members to belong to a group of believers. Biblical community is where discipleship takes place.


We Serve

Christ did not come to earth to be served but to serve. We serve as an expression of Christ's love and stewardship of His grace, marked by humility, generosity and hospitality.
