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. Due to COVID-19 we are gathering online, it is important that we don't forsake gathering together. We need to do life in a community. So we are encouraging our church family to sign up for a small group. Click the link below to join a group. Or Scroll down to find out how to have your group meet online

FREE RESOURCES

Running small groups online can be difficult because of the added hurdles and layers that technology provides. As we learn to gather this new way online we want to help make the transition easier for you so we have compiled free resources from networks, churches, and companies that will make running your group a little easier.

 

We recommend the leader of the small group sharing their personal desktop screen through zoom to the rest of the group with the curriculum or Bible study preloaded on your browser so that everyone can both see and participate in the conversation without any background noise distractions. If you need help or have questions how to share your screen email us at office@riverchurch.city
