Time For a New Time!

When River City Church first began as a small group of people, we met in locations that were only available on Sunday nights. When we got our own building in 2016 we continued meeting for worship on Sunday evenings. The Bible assumes that believers will gather together in local assemblies (notice the repeated phrase “when you come together” in 1 […]

Come, Let Us Adore Him

Advent is a time of anxious waiting. Instead of getting caught up with the anxiousness of the Christmas season, it’s important to slow down and reflect on who Jesus is and why he came. One of the best ways to do that is with an advent devotional book. Russ Ramsey has a wonderful book called […]

The Embassy

The Bible calls Christians “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20). This phrase carries a lot of meaning for those who are walking with Christ. It means that we recognize that this world is not our home. We are not citizens here, rather our citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20). One day, we will go to […]

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

We begin our Christmas sermon series on Sunday at 6 PM. Actually, one could make the argument that we’ve been in the advent series since the beginning of August because we’ve been preaching through the whole story of the Bible since then. The story of God is the story of Jesus Christ our Savior. And after covering the […]

Foster Love

We are so excited to partner with the Foster Love Project this Christmas season. Oftentimes when a foster child needs placement with a family it happens on short notice with their few possessions thrown into a black trash bag. The Foster Love Project desires to change the perception that foster children, and their belongings, are disposable by providing […]

Hope For Ishmael

As River City has been going through the whole story of Biblical redemptive history we have seen God’s unfolding plan to create a worshipping people who will live in God’s place under God’s gracious rule. It’s a huge understatement to say that currently this is not happening in the Middle East. Recently I read the story of a […]

The One Big Story

What’s your view on the Bible? Does it sit on the shelf collecting dust most of time? Do you pick it up for devotions but spend most of your time reading other material? Or do you go to the Bible when you need a quick pick-me-up when you are feeling down? Maybe you are looking […]

A Place to Meet!

After many months of not having a place of our own, and after a few months of work, River City Church finally has a place to call our own. It’s been quite a ride to get here and we’ve learned a few things along the way: Things always take longer than what you expect. From finding a location […]

New Location Coming Soon!

A church is a group of people formed by God for His glory. In the past, I’ve written about how it’s not a building or an organization, but it’s people that make up a church. However, after spending a year meeting at the Wilkins School Community Center, sharing space with Swissvale Presbyterian Church, and gathering in member’s homes; […]
