A place for all to get Connected at River West

connections web

First steps:

  1. Talk to people before or after church.

  2. Stay for potlucks and get to know some new people.

  3. Go for coffee – with a pastor (or someone else). We’d love the opportunity to get to know you.

  4. Pray with someone after the service at the front. It's a way of connecting with people who will come alongside you with any need you have and keep it confidential.

  5. Attend group events – Women’s Ministry meets once per month, Youth (Friday Evening), Young Adults (Wednesday evening), MOPS (Tuesday morning), Prayer (9:30 Sunday, once per month on Wednesday evening).

 

Next Steps:

  1. Join a small group – Contact Pastor Erica Boschman if you’re interested in joining a small group this fall. We have some new groups starting and room in others. We’d love to be able to find you a place where you can connect and grow in a small group setting. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    • Kitchen & Hospitality –Just as the kitchen is the heart of the home, where family and friends gather to work together, so is the kitchen at River West Christian Church.  Through the kitchen, the congregation is treated to Sunday morning coffee at Connections Café.  Several potluck lunches are coordinated in the kitchen with volunteer helpers recruited from the congregation.  Special events, like conferences and meetings, are served with food prepared in the kitchen.   Volunteers enjoy the sense of team work and fellowship as meals and snacks are presented. Contact Gayle Epp for more information. This email address is being protected from spambots.
