you’re only as strong as what you’re standing on.
At River West Church, our goal is to understand who Jesus is, and what He has done for us, in the fullest sense. This means growing in faith and learning how to apply it to everyday life. Classes are a great way to do just that. We offer a variety of classes throughout the year. To find out when classes are offered, click on Events at the top right of this page.
RIVER WEST CORE CLASSES provide a foundation for who we are as a church, and our role as members of the church body. It is our hope that all River Westers will attend Core Classes.

Join us and learn why baptism is such a joyful and significant part of our experience as the community of Jesus Christ.

- Grace Based ParentingWe believe there’s a biblical philosophy of parenting found in Scriptures and seen in the way that God deals with us–through Grace. In this series of classes, we’ll look at parenting that focuses on the heart of the child and keeps the end result in mind.
