ABOUT US

River’s Edge is a different kind of Church where you can come as you are. So don’t ever worry about what you’re wearing, or where you’re at in life. Besides, We’re more concerned about meeting your practical real life needs. That’s why each week we explain how the Bible can make a real life difference in living a full life, making decisions, understanding our purpose, and improving our relationships, parenting, finances, and so much more.
 
We’ll be too loud for some, and too edgy for others, but we’re always relevant in a deeply spiritual and yet irreligious way. We’re more about sharing principles than telling you what to do. So whatever your doubts or struggles are, we will never pretend that we have all the answers.
 
We strive to be the kind of community that would reflect the inclusive heart of God. Together we want to be the kind of place that accepts people the way they are and journeys together towards transformation.
 
We’re merely imperfect people who are striving to live authentic lives. You could say we’re all flawed, broken and in need of genuine relationships. So, whatever stage of life you’re in: single, married, or somewhere in between, you belong here.
 
You Already Belong
Jesus warmly welcomed those who were far from God, and made it clear that we should be as inclusive as He was. Jesus consorted, conversed and showed compassion towards those that the religious of his day outright rejected. He wanted everyone to experience what it truly means to Belong.
 
Like Jesus, we have always sought to be real and not religious. We want to be a community where you can Belong before you Believe. So no matter who you are, where you’re at, or what you currently believe. We want your spiritual journey to continue with us.
 
As you experience this sense of belonging, it’s only natural that you’ll want to invite your friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances so they too can Belong. Together we can be the kind of place that accepts people the way they are and journeys together towards transformation.

The Path

Welcome to our Discipleship Path at River’s Edge.

We are committed to going deeper through our discipleship process and to engage the greatest number of attenders at River’s Edge. This is why we have developed a discipleship path that begins with START and then continues with NEXT, CORE and then GROW. There are 4 modules in each that we are all encouraged to take. By everyone following this path we provide a consistent context of teaching at River’s Edge that will lead to greater spiritual unity and expression of faith as followers of Jesus Christ.

START

This is the first step on a Path of Purpose. It is the introduction teaching to the faith for someone who is either accepting Jesus for the first time or rededicating his or her life to Him. It also gives a great overview to what we teach on the subject of Jesus, Personal Responsibility, and Baptism. This is where everyone who is new to River’s Edge is encouraged to START.

START Modules

  1. The Path of Life
  2. What Did Jesus Do?
  3. What Must I Do?
  4. Raised To Life

NEXT

This is the second step on a Path of Purpose. In these sessions we begin with Belong, which is the history and distinctives of River’s Edge. In Essentials we cover the Statements of faith as well as the vision, mission, and core values of RE. In Purpose we help you discover your talents, temperament through personality assessments and make the application to spiritual gifts where you can best serve at RE. All this then leads to Membership so that you can commit to the church and make a lasting positive contribution.
 
NEXT Modules
  1. Belong
  2. Essentials
  3. Purpose
  4. Membership

CORE

This is the third step on a Path of Purpose. This is where someone can take their spiritual leadership and involvement at River’s Edge to another level. The first course is Journey to the Core which explains what it means to be a CORE Partner at RE. The second is Belong Group Training which is our small groups training course, where as leaders you are equipped to lead and spiritually multiply. The third course is Difficult Conversations and how to have them. This is an area of growth in most believers lives, where speaking the truth in love and with a positive impact leads to mutual change. Last but not least is Emotionally Healthy Spirituality which will help the leader lead from a inner place of holistic health.

CORE Modules

  1. Journey to the Core
  2. Belong Group Training
  3. Difficult Conversations
  4. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
 
GROW
 
This is the fourth step on a Path of Purpose. In the first module you will learn how to understand and apply the Sacred Scriptures for yourself. In the second, you will discover how you can take your spiritual life to another level with Spiritual Disciplines. In the third, you will learn how to have a conversational relationship with God and in the fourth, you will be trained in how to be a more effective spiritual mentor for others.
 
GROW Modules
  1. Understanding & Applying The Bible
  2. Spiritual Disciplines
  3. Conversing with God
  4. Spiritual Mentoring
 
Belong Groups
21
 
 
 
 
 
Why bother with small groups in a time-pressured culture? Because busy people can become isolated and disconnected. At River’s Edge our vision is to be a place Where No One Journeys Alone. As flawed and broken people, we strive to live authentic lives by following Jesus. We believe that is best accomplished with the encouragement and accountability of a circle of friends. 
 
Belong Groups are an integral part of our spiritual development at River’s Edge. Since one size does not fit all, we offer a variety of Belong Groups, just as people’s needs and interests differ. So whether curious, cautious or wholly committed, connect with God and others in a safe group that accepts you just as you are.
 
There are Belong groups meeting in various parts of the city of Montreal, Laval, South Shore, East End and the West Island. As well as other more distant communities like the Laurentians and the Eastern Townships.
 
belong_course We also offer Belong Courses throughout the year to complete your spiritual learning and growing experiences at River’s Edge. We offer courses like Financial Peace, Alpha, God Is My CEO, Choosing The One, 50 days of Transformation, and many more. These courses generally take place on weeknights or Saturday mornings over 7-11 weeks.

Events

New Series: DISRUPTION

Holding On By A Thread
At some point in our lives, we are going to experience a “Disruption Event”. This could be a relationship failure, a tragic loss, a health issue, or a financial hit. When we do, how we respond says something powerful about who we are and what we believe in. I know that that we don’t always reveal our best selves when this Disruption Event first occurs. But what about after we’ve caught our breath and picked ourselves up? What then? Well in this series we will examine stories in the Bible that we can all relate to that will help us move beyond Disruption Events. We can then, by faith in applying key principles, stop hanging on by a thread and start living our lives in the thriving manner God means for us.
