Church by the River

Join us for worship at 9:00 on Sunday morning


We have a casual style and worshipful attitude and a classic four-fold order:

  • we gather in humility
  • we hear the Word in sermon and song
  • we respond with commitment and communion
  • we bear witness in the world

Come to the table, celebrate communion on the first Sunday each month.

COVID-19 worship adjustments include:

  • distancing upon entering, exiting, and within the sanctuary
  • humming rather than singing
  • masks as each one is comfortable
  • no passing trays for offering or communion
  • smiles from a distance

This week's sermon looks at Jesus' surprising and abundant presence when we are most in need. Matthew 14:13-21

Texts this week tell of Jesus feeding the 5,000 and Jacob's wrestling match with God. Both Jesus and Jacob were tired, stressed, and desperately needing a break. That is where God found them. The Good News is, that is exactly where God finds us. or, where we find God.
