The River Youth is a great place to learn how to be more like Jesus! This is what gets us excited! We are passionate about having fun (a lot of fun!), fostering friendships, and embodying the characteristics of Jesus in our own lives. We seek to create the right foundation in our youth so they can enjoy a lifelong relationship with Jesus, for there is truly nothing better in life than this!

The Year of the Lord’s Favor
61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
