About The River

Our Mission is Simple

Where Our Members and Guests Experience Hope, Freedom and God...Together

Our Vision is Big

To purposely live-out Christ's two Great Commandments: To love God and love all people. -Matthew 22: 36-40

Our Core Values

All people matter to God. The Bible is both relevant and transformational in our lives. Relationship is vital for spiritual, emotional and physical well-being. Missional living completes a Christ-Follower’s life.

Hungry For God

The church-wide fast begins Sunday, June 25th at 11:00am and ends Tuesday, June 27th at 7:00pm

Four reasons for the fast:

  • Progress for transforming our 8th St. building into the year-round Spirit of Hope Men’s Shelter
  • Wisdom in the search for our next lead pastor
  • Church finance
  • God’s strength and healing for anyone struggling or under attack

On Monday, June 26 there will be a time of prayer for any who can attend from 5:30pm - 7:00pm at the church.


On Tuesday, June 27, there will be a time of worship, communion and a lite meal to break the fast from 6:30pm - 7:30pm.

The River is a non-denominational church in Delavan, WI. 

Services and ministry activities take place inside a unique, 1929 Spanish architecture building in downtown Delavan that once housed local stage plays and 2 movie theaters. From mid-2006 to early 2007, members and friends renovated it to become the church we have today, while maintaining some of the thematic components from the movie theater days. 

If you've ever sought "churches near me," give The River a try.
