What is River of Life? 

River of Life is a contemporary worship community at Grace United Methodist Church. Worship service is at 10:45 a.m.

What is a River of Life service like?

Casual, yet purposeful…  Reflective… Vibrant.

A place where it’s OK to have doubts, ask questions, and disagree.  Here at River we believe we are meant to do life together. We believe life is best lived in community. We experience God’s healing, loving presence in community. We value authenticity, the courage to be “real,” and compassion for self and others. We believe worship is central to our spiritual lives because, in worship, we remember who we are and make space to discern God’s spirit moving in our lives. Worship is where we are both nourished and challenged for the week ahead.

The River of Life is a special contemporary worship experience.  We are one of the services offered at Grace United Methodist Church, Olathe, KS. We have a unique worship room specially designed for us – The Grace Gathering Room – at Grace United Methodist Church. The River of Life is a great service for those with small children!  (Childcare is available, though we do have several tiny ones who like to bop along to the music in the River of Life.) Pastors are easily accessible, and it is a friendly environment.

The service takes place at 10:45 a.m. Sundays. The Grace Gathering Room is the worship room to the left as you go in the main church doors.

In addition to the River of Life worship experience and fellowship, we have the backing and structure of a large mainline church.  For example, Grace UMC has outstanding programs for Youth and Children and Adults, along with many of the other opportunities found at large established churches.  Grace also has a strong commitment to mission work .

Come to The River and worship with us!
