River Christian Church relies on the faithful service of volunteers to fulfill the mission of the Church. Without the time, energy, and prayer invested by these individuals, RCC would not be successful.

This team ensures the baptism process goes smoothly for both the believer and pastor by connecting with the individual and walking him/her through the process from beginning to end. Our volunteers then follow up with individuals after they are baptized to ensure they are getting plugged into a life group community at RCC. It’s an exciting privilege to walk alongside another as they make the decision to be baptized!

Much like the small group communities found in the book of Acts, the core of RCC is the idea of people doing life together in Life Groups. Members of our life groups strive to live intentionally, focused on loving Jesus and those around them, thereby changing the world. Life groups are a place to encounter God’s presence, go deep in His Word, share life together, invite friends and have an absolute blast. It is also the best way to get connected to our church.
