At The River, our “streams” are small groups designed to build relationships within the local body of believers. We understand that attending service for only two hours a week is not what God intended for His Church. We need each other and it is important that we love, share, grow and learn from one another.
We have numerous groups that meet weekly throughout our community. Please join us and see how we can make a difference in your life. See the various stream groups we have below. For more information, please contact us at 573-774-9972. Our office hours are Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm. 
From the week of February 4 – April 22, 2019
