New to The River? Have Questions?
We would love to meet you! Bring your Connection Card and stop by the Connection Room across from the Worship Center. We have a free gift for you, too! This is also the place to stop by with any questions about what’s happening at The River.
We want you to be connected with others at the River! Whether it's doing things with people who have similar interests, joining a Bible study or community group, or serving. Contact our Director of Connections and Small Groups at email@example.com and she'll make it happen!
Community Group Opportunities
Interested in joining a small group? We currently have openings on Sunday morning and a few that meet during the week. We also are starting up a few new groups including a women’s only group, young married couples, and groups that are mixed ages. If you have been wanting to join a group this is the time! Contact Leslie by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Church Elder
The Elders are presenting Bob Burns as a candidate to become an elder at The River Church. Per our Constitution, on 12/12/21 we began a 30-day window for anyone to express concerns about about Bob’s qualifications as an elder. You may contact the Elders by emailing elders@HitTheRiver.com.
On January 1st our church started our annual 21 day “Daniel Fast.” Grab an information packet (with recipes!) in the foyer, or email Info@hittheriver.com to receive the pdf version. This is a significant way for you to grow spiritually and turbocharge your prayers!
The idea of the separation of church and state has unfortunately resulted in many Christians not bringing their Christian values and behaviors into their lives Monday through Saturday. Those are relegated to be in operation only on Sunday. This week, look for a way to show Christian behavior at your job.
On Friday, January 28th from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. we will be having a fun evening for couples. The evening will include dessert, games and prizes, fellowship and we will feature the River Church Elders in the Newlywed Game. For questions contact Leslie by emailing email@example.com.
