Located in East Sacramento, River Life Covenant Church is a community church with a core of 65+ families. About one-third of our members reside in East Sac, while the rest come from all around the Sacramento area. Our members tend to reflect the easy-going, family-oriented nature of the neighborhood. We are a community of folks of various ethnicities, and we have several families with significant immigrant stories. At the center of our faith and life together is Jesus Christ.

Both new and longtime attendees find us to be a friendly and welcoming congregation. Ingrained in River Life’s DNA is a strong sense of community. We are a group that likes to hang out with each other, and we tend to rally around needs as they arise, whether they be for church members or the wider community. Members of our congregation take a genuine interest in one another’s lives. From providing meals for someone who has recently had surgery, to helping a member move, when something needs to be done, you’ll find people willing to roll up their sleeves and pitch in.
Our church is a thriving intergenerational community. When there are service projects and church work days, you find children, teens, adults, and seniors working side by side. Over the years, we have had adults - both parents and those without children - volunteer in our children’s ministry and our youth group. During our church’s annual Advent Night, members of all ages gather to celebrate the arrival of Christ’s birth.
