Why do we call ourselves The River Community?

We believe that churches should flow like a river and not sit motionless like a lake.  People who step into a lake generally exit from the same place they entered.  But when a person enters a river they will always exit from a different place, which means that they have experienced movement by the current.  Our goal is to move people further along their spiritual journey than when they first entered The River.
Please join us!
