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.
