As RiverTree Church headed into the 2010s, many in our church saw that the facilities created a barrier to reaching more people. Because of the average attendance and available seating, RiverTree was forced to offer three worship gatherings every week.
A building committee was formed and they quickly saw a need for a larger facility to accommodate those who were already part of our church, and those we hoped to reach.
While RiverTree sacrificially gave and raised $3.2 million for the rebuild, we still had to take out a $1.4 million loan. We have paid the loan down to about $1.2 million, but RiverTree leadership has felt the need to pursue aggressively paying off our debt so we can pursue the "next things" God is calling us to.
