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 the IMPACT mentoring program and more.
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.
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.
