Groups and gatherings
For the rest of 2018 all Downriver Church small groups are going to be doing our NEXT series curriculum together, and all our groups are going to be open to everyone. This means that it’s a great time to check out a group to meet new people and to find out if the group is a good fit. When we relaunch groups for the new year, you can go back to that group, or feel free to give another group a try. Maybe you’d even like to host or lead a group! Even if you have never been a group host or leader before, we can help.
Another benefit of having our groups all centered on the same curriculum is that if your schedule changes and you need to join a group that meets on another night, or if you know early on that a group may not be a great fit, you won’t miss out on any of what is being taught and talked about by joining a different group the next week.

We have a number of groups that gather weekly, biweekly and monthly with the purpose of growing our relationships and increasing our faith in Jesus.
But what we have listed below isn't all we do. Would you like to get together with other Downriver Church people to go for a run, or learn how to prepare meals for your growing family, or to talk about theological and spiritual things? Great! Just ask someone to join you when you do those things. We are all about doing things we like to do together. And if you don't know how to ask, let us know and we can help. The community of Christians is made up of all kinds of people, from all walks of life, who like to do all sorts of things. We are certain there's a place for you here in the community of people who call Downriver their church home.
Small Group Info
Downriver Church small groups are groups of 8-16 people who gather weekly to learn more about Jesus together. Meetings usually last about 90 minutes, and take place in a host home. These groups reset about quarterly. Popular topics of study include: books of the Bible, family, marriage, finances, spiritual growth. Check out the link above for more info on small groups.
Ages and Stages groups Info
Our men’s and women’s ministries meet approximately once a month. Sometimes they get together to eat, sometimes they gather to serve, and sometimes they get together to do something active or fun. We are also launching a youth group and a young adult ministry this fall. For more info on anything above, email us, and be sure to check out the calendar on our home page.
Our missional partnerships are the main way we serve our community. Organizations like Bite 2 Go and Transitions, a transitional living facility for women, are some of our primary partners. We also serve through Big Table, Project 619, and a number of other Spokane-based non-profits. To learn about how to serve, send us an email, and be sure to watch the calendar.
