Join us on a Sunday!
What You Will Experience
Our Sunday morning experience includes thought-provoking teaching, incredible music and a comfortable environment. We will say 'good morning' to you as you come in and hand you a program with more information about the morning.
Your Child's Experience
We have an exceptional program for children (birth-sixth grade). Our team focuses on creating environments that are fun, age-appropriate, biblically based, and safe. Through games, music, storytelling and hands on learning, we provide an experience that kids will love being a part of every week!
Our Core Values
It makes total sense to wonder about what is at the core of a local church, and we welcome the opportunity to share this any chance we get. We are confident in what God has called us to be in our community.
You Are Welcome Here!
We used to say "no perfect people allowed", however, if you believe you are perfect - you are still welcome. If you are like the rest of us (flawed, hurt, lacking, trying hard) then you will feel right at home. We are an eclectic church with all kinds of backgrounds. Come and join us - there is no requirement for us all to agree on everything. Here is a map to help you find us.
We have a number of opportunities and activities going on outside of sunday morning. plus, if you are looking for a place to plug in and serve in our community, take a look at these opportunities and sign up.
Join with our community in prayer for each other. You can share prayer needs and also pray for others in our community - letting them know they are being prayed for.
For our members and regular attenders, giving back joyfully is part of what we do - both because we believe that God has called us to join Him in what he is doing and because generosity is life-bringing.
Our Staff Team
Our team is the best around. Feel free to reach out to any of them if you have questions about a specific area of ministry here at the River.
Beyond Sunday Morning
Our church exists far beyond what happens on Sunday mornings. Sunday may be the best place to plug in first - but it is likely that you will look for more. These are some other areas of ministry in our community.
The heart and soul of our church exists in our life groups. Life groups are small groups individuals or families that meet to share life together. Sharing life involves having fun, sharing meals, studying the Bible, caring & praying for each other and even impacting the community together. If you are interested in joining in this 'deeper' community, email our life group team.
MIDWEEK is an opportunity to plug into short-term groups and classes. The sessions are generally 6 weeks long and meet weekly on Wednesday nights. You can find more information about upcoming or current MIDWEEK sessions here.
Our College and young adult ministry that meets every Tuesday night near the Tennessee Tech campus. The Gathering is a great place to engage with others in your same life-stage and plug into worship, teaching, small groups and service. Email the Gathering team today for more in formation or check out their website here.
Collision Student Ministry
For students in 7th-12th grade, we offer a weekly program on Wednesdays. With activities beginning right after school, students are invited to come and hang out with each other and adult leaders. Dinner is provided and the night is capped off with some worship, teaching and small group discussion time. Collision also does a number of special events and trips throughout the year.
