Welcome! The River Church is an ancient-future faith community serving Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and the New River Valley.

We're thrilled that you're taking time to look at our ministry and we hope you'll join us for worship on Sunday in Downtown Blacksburg. 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

Our worship service is held right in the heart of Downtown Blacksburg. We meet at 9:15am in the Blacksburg First Church of God building. We have a space for nursery-aged children at the back of the sanctuary. Pre-K and Elementary children begin with their families in worship (and are welcome to stay in the service for its entirety) before heading to the fellowship building for Godly Play from 9:35 - 10:20. They rejoin the congregation for Communion. After the service we have a great time of fellowship and coffee, as well as adult education classes in the fall and spring.

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 and diagonal from the Squires Student Center). It's a great space to relax, relate, and refresh! We have hundreds of books that can be borrowed, espresso, coffee, and tea, and two separate spaces to meet, relax, or study. One is a large living room space with a kitchenette, and the other (across the hall) is a spacious conference room. Both rooms are available for individuals and groups inside and outside The River to reserve.
