You’ll find free and delicious food, great worship and relevant, authentic, Biblical teaching when you come to theRiver on Sunday nights.

theRiver is a place for college students and young adults to take steps with God and meet people who want to do the same.

  • August - April
  • Free dinner in the Cafe at 5:30p.m.
  • Worship and teaching at 6:15p.m.

On Sunday nights August through April, the smells of a delicious home-cooked meal and the sounds of students worshiping God flow out of the Cedar Falls Campus. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for a great-tasting meal. After dinner, a worship service kicks off around 6:15 p.m. in the Worship Center, with musical worship and relevant, engaging teaching from one of PLC's pastors or leaders. Visit our Facebook page to see what’s coming up this week.


We all need people to do life with. At theRiver, we have groups for guys and gals that are led by adults and select college students from PLC. Small groups provide a place to ask questions, to grow with God and to form lifelong friendships. Stop by the Connection Desk on a Sunday night to sign up.


Sometimes it's good to unplug from the world and the chaos of your to-do list. That's exactly what we do on our retreats. These weekends are packed full with exciting adventures, new friends, life-changing truth and intentional steps with God.


God is always inviting us to Join Him in what He’s doing around us…where we live, where we hang out, in our community and in our world. How can you ‘Be a Blessing’ and ‘Build a Relationship’ today?
