A Warm Greeting

A heartfelt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. No matter what question you might have, our greeters are there to help you get settled and comfortable.

People from All Walks of Life

Iowa City is a source of constant change. Whether you are involved in campus life, drawn here for your profession or a life-long Hawkeye native, you can feel at home at The River.


We love music, all kinds of music. From hymns to contemporary Christian music we use music to show our Lord how much we love and honor Him.


The Bible is God’s truth.

At The River we seek to explore, understand and apply God’s truth to our lives at every level in a spirit of love. You will find a growing variety of resources to help you grow in God’s truth.
