No one should go through life alone.
We hope every member of RiverOaks feels known, accepted and loved. We want you to feel like you would be missed if you were gone.
To help our members develop that sense of connectedness, we have several community groups meeting at various times during the week for spiritual and social refreshment. Some groups focus on spiritual discussions, others feel more like parties. We encourage you to try any or all of them; find one works best for you. Here is a list:
Location: 111th & Lousville
Meetings: Every Sunday (4-6 PM)
Description: During the first hour, we go through one of the New City Catechism devotionals and spend time together in prayer. Then, we spend the second hour eating together and enjoying fellowship. Childcare is provided on-site for all ages.
Location: 91st & Yale
Meetings: 1st & 3rd Thursdays (6:30 PM)
Description: Borders is a fun group of adults ranging in ages from early 20’s through 60’s. We meet to eat a meal together and reflect on the sermon from the past week. During those months with a 5th Thursday, we get together for special, fun events. We are Borders because we are all in between, “on the border”, of this life we are living and the one we long for someday in heaven.
Location: 121st and Mingo
Meetings: 1st & 3rd Sundays (12:30 PM)
Description: We get together for a potluck lunch in a friendly, inviting home after 2nd service to share life together and pray for one another.
Location: 81st between Sheridan and Yale
Meetings: Every Sunday (6:30 PM)
Description: We are a great group for newcomers and long-standing members to find their place, meet more people in a relaxing home environment, and grow in fellowship and encouragement. No formal study; we simply eat and spend time together (and often play pool). Childcare is not provided.
Location: 111th & Sheridan
Meetings: 1st & 3rd Sundays (6 PM)

Location: 21st & Lewis
Meetings: 1st and 3rd Thursdays (7:30-9pm), and last Sunday of the month in the afternoon with kids

Again, welcome to RiverOaks! We hope you will find a group to plug into, because our community groups are where life happens.
