River City Church gathers in smaller communities throughout our city & region to live out our mission together in close relationships with others.
As a community, River City Church lives for the glory of God and the good of the city by extending hope through the gospel in our homes, as the church, in the city or public sphere. So there is a sense that the church both gathers and scatters. We gather together (1 Corinthians 14:26; Hebrews 10:19-25) and live as God's sent people in the world (John 20:21; Colossians 4:2-6).
We come together for weekly worship by singing together, proclamation of God's Word and the observance of the Lord's Table. We have a joint life together to receive instruction and equipping for living Gospel centered lives. Yet the church must also live in neighborhoods, on streets, in apartment buildings, in dormitories and condos.
River City Church exists as a gathered, yet scattered people in culture.
The Church Gathered - Our Sunday gatherings.
The Church Scattered - mission, care, living out the commands of scripture.
We encourage one another in relationships and do life with others through our missional communities. Our Missional Communities are actually the place where home, church, and city converge as we live out gospel centered mission. All our members connect this way and anyone can be involved.
