Beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains
Time with extended church community


Let's retreat to the beauty and fresh air of the Santa Cruz mountains with our River church family. At Riverfest, we have a rare opportunity to connect as one whole church -- across groups, generations, and life-stages. This all-church retreat only happens every other year, so you don't want to miss it this year! Space is limited, so be sure to register sooner than later.


Riverfest is a place to be encouraged in our journey of faith. There will be large group times of teaching and worship as well as times for individual reflection and prayer. This year's location even has a quiet prayer chapel available for use throughout our weekend.


Riverfest is also a place to connect with God and his beautiful creation in nature and in one another. It’s a breath of fresh air and the balance we need to the frenetic pace and individualistic lifestyle of Silicon Valley. It’s an opportunity to deepen existing relationships with old River friends as well as make connections with new River friends.
