Welcome to the homepage of The River Church. The River is a blue-jean friendly, ancient-future faith community in Blacksburg, Virginia. On this website, enjoy our latest eNews, sermons, blogs and more!
We're thrilled that you're taking time to look at our ministry and we hope you will worship with us. 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
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.
Come and visit us in this historic building!
OUR NEW SPACE
The River's Edge is our new downtown Blacksburg space, above Souvlaki's (corner of College and Draper); a place to read, relax, relate and refresh! We have hundreds of books that can be borrowed (using www.LibraryThing.com), free espresso, coffee, space to relax with a living room feel, and more. Stay tuned for more details as we expect the space to be completed by August 31.
