Coming Soon

Middle Talk

Middle Talk fulfills the compassion & justice objective to equip the community to engage thoughtfully and gracefully the conversations of our day with theological depth and understanding. Middle talk is a facilitated sharing dialogue for small to medium/large groups of people on one of the following topics: Race & Ethnicity, politics, life in silicon valley, wealth, gender and sexuality, housing. We are currently looking for two facilitators to be able to offer each small group at the River the opportunity to have at least 1 facilitated conversation a year. Talk with Iheoma for more information.

Sustainability Cohort

A majority of Compassion & Justice initiatives are outward focused, this one is inward focused, helping the River practice creation care and increased ecological sustainability. Members of the cohort will ideate and implement ways that the River Church and its programs can be ecologically sustainable. Talk with Iheoma for more information.
