Welcome to The River: Online

I want to personally welcome you to The River.

We believe The River is God's appointment for The Woodlands/Shenandoah/Oak Ridge area of South Texas.

The world as we know it is fully represented within The Greater Woodlands Area.  People from all over the world can be seen everyday walking, driving and interacting within our community.

Jesus said "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations".  We believe this can and will be accomplished right here from The Woodlands, Texas.

Our goal is to touch this community with the presence and power of Christ through loving and serving people.

"And everywhere the river goes, there will be many fish.  Wherever this water goes the Dead Sea will become fresh.  So where the river goes there will be many living things." Ezekiel 47:9 International Children's Bible

Each Sunday morning, children are released from the adult service after Praise and Worship to attend children's church.
Parents and/or caregivers are always welcome to join us to check out the fun and excitement first hand!

Wednesday nights while the Adults are in Mid Week Bible Study, the Children's Ministry goes off the charts with a FUN, INTERACTIVE, ILLUSTRATED, AND HILARIOUS evening with our Children's Ministry Staff.
It's a night of fun, games, bible stories, and it's heart capturing for every child that attends. 

The Wading Pool (infants thru 3 years)

The Wading Pool's mission is taken from the words of Jesus, "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes Me" Mark 9:37.
At The River, we want to serve your little one, knowing that nursery is likely to be his or her first experience of the love of God through the body of Christ.
We want to serve you, the parents, by giving you the opportunity to worship with the freedom of knowing that your children are being well-cared for.  


As our babies grow to be little toddlers, we strive to prepare them for the next step in the Spiritual walk...The Riverbank (our Children's Church program)!
Our mission is to provide a smooth transition from the Wading Pool to the Riverbank to optimize each child's spiritual growth.
We do this by separating the 2 & 3 years olds from the babies and walkers to give them a pre-children's church experience that includes games, singing, and teaching that will help in the transition before advancing.

The Wading Pool is available for your children during all classes and church services.
