Family Values. Who’s not for family values? But healthy and functional relationships don’t happen by accident. River Community Church is deeply interested in actually helping people develop and live by values that will actually help produce good and functional relationships.

Yes, we know this is a tall order. But we don’t say this because we think we are smarter or better than anyone else who likes the idea of family values. We simply believe that God’s Book, the Bible, has principles and methods that provide the means for great relationships. So helping people have solid family relationships is something we do and value!

Our vision for families is to offer:

  1. HOME for spiritually homeless people. We envision a place where people can begin and build a deep relationship with Jesus Christ and with fellow believers; where people do life together in genuine community; where people grow spiritually in an atmosphere where the grace of God is highly celebrated; and where parenting and marriage relationships are strengthened by learning and practicing biblical principles.
  2. HELP for those who are struggling. You can come here with your real needs. You won’t be judged but you will find help from caring people; where difficult life-issues are helped or solved with friends who can help you find answers from God’s truth.
  3. HOPE to people struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups that prevent them from enjoying meaningful relationships with God and each other.
