Our History

River City United Methodist Church in Louisville, KY is a part of something much bigger! We are a campus of St. Matthews United Methodist Church and a part of the Louisville Heartland District and Kentucky Annual Conference of United Methodist Churches.
In 2013 St. Matthews put together a team to think about how we could reach outside the walls of the church and bless people that might never drive down Browns Ln. This team came up with our 20/20 Vision and River City UMC is a huge part of that vision. The 20/20 Vision takes the best parts of who we are as a church and expands upon those to lead us into the future. Our hope is that all people will experience true community through the love of Jesus Christ through the ministry of River City UMC.


Being a multi-site congregation gives River City UMC a lot of advantages. Because we belong to a larger and more established church, we can support and be a part of large mission events, such as foreign mission trips and health clinics. We have a deep partnership that will help River City UMC grow to a self-sustaining church. St. Matthews and River City United Methodist Churches are convinced that together we can reach more people with the love of Christ than we can apart.
