How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandparent, a busy parent, or a business person with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.


SPLASH! Children’s Ministry & Activities

Children are an integral part of the Body of Christ and at River City we want to celebrate that! At each of our services, children begin in the service with their parents because we believe children should be SEEN and HEARD in our church. After the offering your child will have the option to participate in their own worship experience with Bible lessons taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Nursery care for children 6 weeks-4 years old is available during our services.


Bible Studies

We are committed to connecting people to Christ and one another. Studying the word together is integral to developing your faith and strengthening your walk with Christ. At River City we believe in providing spaces for people to learn and grow through studying the Bible, discussing it with their peers and encouraging one another in their faith.


Prayer Ministry

Prayer is at the center of all that we do at River City UMC. We pray with and for one another and our community. If you have a gift for praying for others, then there is a place for you in this ministry. Please contact Pastor Derek for more information:


Worship Band

Our services are driven by modern worship music, but occasionally incorporate the hymns that bind us to our Methodist roots. If you have a gift and passion for music and would like more information about participating in the band, please contact Emily Smothers:


Worship Service Volunteers
