Serving each other. Building God's church.
Ben and Erin Warner are our Children's Pastors. Along with their team of teachers, the children of River Church are learning and worshipping together.
Ben and I come from very different backgrounds, but one thing we have in common is that we did not begin a relationship with Jesus Christ until we were adults. Because of this we are passionate about leading children into a relationship with Jesus even at a young age.
We believe the best way to do this is by teaching Biblical truth so kids not only understand their faith, but are able to defend it. The kids have their own time of worship and we are intentional about teaching them what worship is. It is in these times of worship that a relationship with the Savior grows even deeper.
We also encourage acts of service among the children of River Church. We believe service beginning at a young age will lead to a life of service. Along with serving, the kids are encouraged to share Jesus with those they are serving. Kids are an important and integral part of the congregation, that their prayers are powerful and that they are a valuable part of the church family now and as they grow.
The River Youth are led by Marc & Liz Sperlich. Grades 7-12 meet every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00 pm at River Church.
On the 1st and 4th Sundays, grades 9-12 have class with Jim Landis during the service.
Lynette Reinford is Care Pastor at River Church. Lynette and her team are available to church members for meeting needs ranging from counseling to assistance.
