Here at River Road, almost half of our worshipping congregation belongs to a small group. Small group participation is a priority because it is the most effective venue for growing in your faith and it empowers the church to live out its mission of loving and serving God and neighbor. Small groups within the church are the primary place where you can connect with God and also with one another.

By participating in a small group, you can study and discuss God’s Word hands-on in an intimate setting, enabling you to dig deep into your own understanding and share your faith with others. We hope that you will join a group and jump on board the exciting journey of living a life intentionally with God!
