Created and Called


“As each of you has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace... In order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him be glory and dominion forever. Amen.” (1 Peter 4:10-11)

One of our 4 Core Values at The River is Contribution, embracing God's call to strengthen the church and her mission through the thoughtful stewarding of our time, gifts/passions, and material resources. We believe that God has gifted every person with skills, passions, and abilities, and that both individuals and the church are at their best when there are opportunities to exercise those in a meaningful way.

Whether you are new to serving in a church or have years of experience, we would love to find a place that’s a good fit for you and where you will thrive.
