Loving our Community

This ministry is very important to our church.  Our goal is to love our community with “no strings attached.”  This outward expression of serving our community can open the door for the church to share the love that God has for all His people.


Community Free Meal

River extends our love to the community by providing an early Christmas meal to those in the community.  The church donates all of the food items and prepares the meal at the Episcopal Church.  Music, baked goods and fellowship are highlights of the day.  While the adults help with the meal preparation, our youth help with setting up.  They also get an opportunity to serve in the food pantry with sorting food items for the Portage community.

Block Party

Another yearly event is our Block Party held at River of Life Church sometime during the summer.  This free event brings in many people from the community.  The afternoon is filled with the excitement of free bounce houses, free kid’s games, and live music.  Those that attend can also have free popcorn, hot dogs and snow cones.
