Our services are designed to flow with whatever Holy Spirit wants to accomplish… not our agendas. We usually begin with praise and worship led by one of our anointed Music Ministry teams whose primary goal is to bring the congregation into an encounter with Christ that is both intimate and refreshing. During this time, one of our dance teams ministers and takes the experience of His
presence to an even deeper place.
As if that’s not enough, Pastor Dony or Pastor Reba continues our services with relevant, life-changing teachings. Whether they’re simply sharing timeless truths from God’s Word and life’s experiences or they’re elaborately weaving His Word into our hearts through dramatic illustrations, their messages are practical and, when applied to our every day routines, can positively change our lives by changing the way we think. Even beyond that, the teachings of this house empower us to go into our marketplaces and impact those around us with the love of Christ.
Nursery and Children’s Ministry are lovingly provided during our regular weekly services. Our Youth Ministry has its own monthly meetings with music, messages, and activities geared for young people. On the first Sunday of every month, we share the Lord’s Supper (communion) as a church family.
Many people ask who Pastors Dony and Reba are submitted to or what denomination they are affiliated with. Pastors are ordained by Bishop David Huskins under the Fellowship of Vineyard Harvester Churches. This fellowship acts as a covering and provides spiritual eldership to them and our church. We are proud to be considered part of this great network of churches in the United States and internationally.
There are countless ways to get involved at The River: whether it’s by helping to meet the needs of one another within the household of faith… or by serving in areas where assistance is needed before, during, and after services… or maybe volunteering for an outreach to our community. You can find fulfillment and enjoy the benefits of being an active part of this body.
The River is a house of prayer. This ministry was birthed in prayer and will be sustained by the consistent, effectual prayers of this people. We have a team of intercessors who are responsible for praying over the needs of the people and any prayer requests we receive through the web site. We have seen the supernatural intervention of God on behalf of His people through this ministry.
In addition to our regular services, we believe in the importance of fellowship and breaking bread together. That’s why we make room in our schedule for gatherings to get together and grow together in love. During the summer, we have church-wide fellowships at local parks and enjoy a meal together and various sporting activities.
At The River, we’re more than just a church; "We are family!"
SPLASH CLUB KIDS
We function from the paradigm, “Children are our greatest treasures to protect, instruct, challenge and inspire by Christ-centered principles and mentoring.” We also are motivated to help them discover… church can be fun!
