Who We Are

Rivertree Community Church is a church plant in downtown Jackson, MI. Started in 2007, out of a desire to connect with people who weren’t being reached by more traditional church settings, Rivertree began life in the basement of a local family and grew to our current location at the Jackson YMCA. We desire to become people who Love Recklessly, Live Passionately and Serve Selflessly.

At Rivertree we believe in being actively actively involved in our community. As such we partner with many organizations such as Partnership Park, the Hot Air Jubilee, the Together We Can Make a Difference Home, as well as the YMCA. We also believe in being actively involved in our world, sending mission teams regularly to locations such as West Virginia, Jamaica, Haiti, and Costa Rica.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our Gatherings are casual and take place in the West Gym of the Jackson YMCA. Signs will direct you to the gym when you enter the building. Check-in for our child care ministries in just inside the front door on the left. When you enter the gym you can expect coffee, snacks, and friendly people. We focus on being real and genuine people. We may make a mistake in the Gathering. That's OK! We will worship, pray, learn, and spend time building community.

What is the community like?
The church is made up mostly of young families, but we have a growing Youth Ministry and population of those over 50 as well.

What if I'm not a Christian?
No worries! Come on down!
