Missions, Community Outreach, and Worship/Media Expertise

Maybe you wonder what River City Church really has to teach you.  We have a strong experience in foreign missions and conduct significant community outreach throughout the year.  In fact, right now we’re developing a community center across the street from us that new students will have a hand in shaping.  Furthermore, our worship and media ministries at River City will give you extraordinary exposure to reaching people in forms that are culturally relevant and spiritually impacting.  Our youth, children, and small groups ministries are also areas of great strength in the life of this church, located in the community home of Purdue University.
