We believe that we were created to be radical worshipers and outrageous givers. It is our goal to be stewards of the presence of God in our services and outside of the church building. Our services are not focused around the sermon but rather around the presence and glory of God. The reality is that God inhabits the praises of His people and it is our joy to give him glory and honor in any opportunity that we have.

Amplify Youth:
On hold till COVID restrictions are lifted…..Exists to see young people have a divine encounter with Jesus Christ, grow in intimacy with the Lord, belong in community, and be empowered as supernatural world-changers in their world. We are not only hearers but doers of the word as we proclaim the gospel of the kingdom everywhere we go.

Chi Alpha:
Campus ministry at Bemidji State University run by Phil and Michelle Thooft. Donations can be made through Global Student Inc.

Children’s Ministry:
In process of restarting….Our Children’s Ministry desires children to encounter God, His works, and develop healthy lifestyles and relationships. Their mission is to have the children experience the presence of God by investing each week in worship, digging into the truth in the word of God, and learning to consistently pay attention to what the Lord is doing around them.

The kingdom of God is far greater than any local church. We see ourselves involved in the work of God in this area and the world today.   We consider ourselves part of the body of Christ at large. We are called to make disciples of the nations and that is what we aim to do. Locally and internationally.

Over the past 20 years, River City Church has made mission trips to Canada, Jamaica, Ireland, Latvia, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina, Colombia, Romania, Guatemala and others.  The purpose of each mission trip has varied from providing prayer over a certain part of the country to providing clothing to the under privileged, or building a school in Guatemala. We have preached the gospel of the Kingdom and prayed for healing and deliverance. Nonetheless, God has provided the means and desire of our hearts to reach the nations of the world with His Word. Our hearts are always open to wherever our Lord leads us to go.

Current ministries:  Celebrate Recovery – Tuesdays at RCC from 5-7 p.m.;  Journey Outreach – Sundays from 1 -3 pm at Calvary Chapel in Bemidji, MN
