Welcome to The River
Sunday Morning Services
We are located in the Lower Level of the Santander Bank building.
A Quick Who We Are
The River is a diverse group of people looking to follow Jesus as best we can into the various things we’re feeling called to pursue. Our motto is one of love and connection. Leadership at The River is open to anyone looking to follow Jesus. It doesn’t matter what ethnicity you are, what gender you are, or what your sexual orientation is. We do our best to support one another through both the good times and the bad. We laugh together. We cry together. We pray together. We learn together.
It’s All About Connection
The River is a Jesus, Spirit, Scripture, science, all-people friendly church. Our desire is to see faith become accessible to the growing sea of people who would identify themselves as spiritual but would also self-identify as religiously averse. We’re motivated by the understanding that:
- Faith is all about connection—to self, others, the world and God.
- We need connection more than we need answers.
- God is a living God who can find us and be found by us.
- Our tendency to judge is a big problem.
- There is no bad news in the good news of Jesus.
Below is what we would call an examen or a reflection. Many of us understand "finding our center" in terms of exercise these days, which is really good! This is an exercise in examining our centers from a whole-self perspective. Enjoy!
What's Your Center?
Reflection Q1: How do I spend my time?
Reflection Q2: Why do I spend my time this way?
Reflection Q3: Do my motivations feel helpful to me?
Reflection Q4: How full is my center?
Reflection Q5: Now that I think about it, is there anything I've been moving "away from" that I'd like to try and move "towards"?
The reflection above is one of the many ways that we ask ourselves here at The River, "What's my life about?" To hear more, check out one of our Upcoming Events.
