Welcome to the homepage of The River Church. The River is a blue-jean friendly, ancient-future faith community serving Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and the New River Valley in Southwest Virginia.  

We're thrilled that you're taking time to look at our ministry and we hope you will join us for worship. The River is an amazing group of people, and I'm privileged to be part of it.  If we can be of any help to you, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The Rev. Dr. Jonathan R. Tagg

sunday service

We worship at 9:15am in the First Church of God, 110 Roanoke St. in Blacksburg. We have a room for nursery-aged children that is adjacent to the sanctuary. Pre-K and Elementary children begin with their families in the sanctuary and are welcome to stay in the service for its entirety, or they can join other children for Godly Play from 9:35 - 10:20 in the fellowship building. They rejoin the congregation for Communion. After the service we have excellent coffee, fellowship, and adult education classes.

The River's Edge

The River's Edge is our downtown Blacksburg space, on the corner of College and Draper (209D College Ave, above Souvlaki). It's a place to read, relax, relate and refresh! We have hundreds of books that can be borrowed, espresso, coffee, tea, and two separate spaces to meet, relax, or study. One is a large living room space with a kitchenette, and the other is a smaller conference room. Both rooms are available for individuals and groups inside and outside The River to reserve.
