RGC Connect groups

At RiverGate Church (RGC), we offer Connect Groups – small groups that enable you to connect with others and encounter God.  Our Connect Groups meet at various times and locations, any of which you are welcome to join.  Why not try a few?  We look forward to connecting with you!


ENCOUNTERS SERVICE (Sunday Night Service)

Hosted by Pastor Linda Budd

Fall 2023 Dates:  Every Sunday night at 6pm

Every Sunday night, participants encounter the Holy Spirit as they learn how to receive & give words of knowledge.  Imagine being able to give a witness’ account of seeing a blind person’s sight restored! Even better, imagine being the one God uses to do it! Everyone is welcome – come to be healed, to watch, to learn how to minister healing to others, to see the glory of God manifested. You WILL encounter God! 


Hosted by Susie Ellis

Fall 2023 Dates:  Every Sunday morning at 8:30am & 10am

Pre-service prayer takes place in the Prayer Room of RGC. You are all welcome to participate and enjoy this time of ushering in the presence and power of Jesus for all morning services.
