Family Ministry

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deuteronomy 6:5-7)

Are you ready for an adventure? Here at River’s Edge we are all about joyfully chasing after Jesus together as families and equipping parents (and caregivers) to be influential in the spiritual lives of their kids.

Our Strategy:

  • LIFE GROUPS — Prioritize your own personal discipleship.
  • FAMILY NIGHTS — Journey and grow together as a family alongside other families. Come out for a night of family fun, worship, and learning!
