Norris Pavilion Gathering: Sundays, 10:30am, at the Norris Pavilion PARKING LOT with face coverings and physical distancing. Registration no longer required, see you there!


Grounded Groups: Our small group gatherings are resuming! Let bill@riversouthbay.org know if you would like to host or facilitate a group and check out our small group page if you'd like to join a group.


Every Moment HolyIn the midst of the current upheaval in our routines and rhythms it's easy to feel out of sync with God. Let's meet at a designated spot, spend 15-20 minutes together in prayer, then break off in one’s or two’s for a walk and conversation. Short, simple, and God-directed, to keep us on track. Go to our Grow page and see the topic of interest to you and the schedule for when and where we’ll meet. Sign up and we’ll confirm details prior to our meet up. We're experimenting with this opportunity, so if it works, we'll add more options soon.


For more info on the various options, visit our service info page.

From encouraging messages to amazing kids programs, we have designed our services for people who have been long time church  attendees or have never been to church before. No matter where  you've been or what you've done - we invite you to experience The River, an intentionally casual church.


We have weekly Sunday services at Torrance Beach and "on the hill" at the Norris Pavilion.
