Whether you’ve been going to church your whole life or never imagined yourself checking out a church, you are welcome here!
We need not think alike to love alike. We embrace many beliefs and welcome people of all ages, experiences, gender identities and sexual orientations, and ethnic, racial, and cultural identities.
We welcome you – your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes.

Our Vision is to grow in Community, Spirit, and Service
- Community. Community-making is central to our growth as individuals and as community. We strive to be a congregation that is dynamic, life-giving and fulfilling for all congregants.
- Spirit. Growing in spirit happens intentionally and randomly, and it takes a lifetime. River Road is a place to explore existential questions, and deepen our spirits to become who we are meant to be.
- Service. Heads, hearts, and hands – putting our faith into action defines service and social justice. We serve our world through our commitment and acts of love and justice.
