River City is very involved with the North Riverside community of Hollybrook. We have come alongside the families there to share our lives and the journey of faith together with them. There are many opportunities to participate in community life there, including our monthly Birthday Parties, the Share Shop, the IMPACT mentoring program, and more. For more info about our ministry in Hollybrook, please email Craig Curell.
Right next door to Hollybrook is the Lackawanna neighborhood. Each Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. we have the Street Corner ministry, where we open the "White House" (map) to the local residents to come and pick up donated goods (groceries, toiletries, etc) and/or to receive prayer. We follow this up with a Prayer Walk in the neighborhood. In addition, River City Clinic is a free medical clinic that is open to low income adults without insurance. It is open from 12-4 pm on the first and third Saturday of every month. For more info about our ministry in Lackawanna, please email Craig Curell.
River City Church has developed long-term relationships with other churches in Cuba and Costa Rica. We regularly take various groups on trips overseas as a way to not only serve our friends in those countries, but also to receive from them. It has been amazing to see how God continues to grow and shape the people on both sides of these missions trips. For more info about overseas missions, please email Craig Curell.
We have a Meal Ministry that provides meals to families in need, as well as Rethreaded, a ministry that empowers individuals negatively affected by the sex trade. Click here to let us know about your interest in getting involved.
