River of Life church members are genuinely passionate about Christ. We are a community of believers that values a sense of belonging and purpose. We are a church family that knows Jesus and makes Him known.
We welcome and accept people wherever they are in life. Jesus said, “Come to Me all … and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). We aim to be a family of believers that loves all people.
We desire to meet the needs of wounded and hurting people in our community. Jesus taught that the greatest commandments are to love God and to love others (Matthew 22:37-40). We express the love of Jesus Christ by caring for people in tangible ways.
If you are new to River of Life and would like more information about making River of Life your church home, please join Pastor Steve and other leaders for a welcome lunch after service on January 7, in Relatte. Please RSVP at the welcome center or sign up here: Welcome Lunch Sign-Up
LIFE groups are relational small groups with the purpose of developing deep relationships that help us grow as followers of Jesus. They meet weekly and emphasize four elements: friendship, study, prayer, and service. LIFE groups have fun together! Visit a couple of groups and find a place to do life together.
We love to relate! We want people to get to know each other and develop deep, joyful relationships. The coffee shop space, with free Wi-Fi, is open to all anytime the building is open. Coffee and snacks are available before Sunday services and during other special events.
If for any reason you are unable to plug into one of the above, we still want to connect! Please call the office at 319-393-3709 to make an appointment to meet with one of our equipping staff members.
