This Christmas we are helping families in need at Batavia Apartments/Mercy Housing. On a special tree in the church lobby hang decorated with gift tags with an age range and gift idea that will brighten these families’ holiday.

Please consider taking a tag, purchasing a gift, and blessing these families. There is no need to sign-out your tag this year. Please drop off all unwrapped gifts by Sunday, December 2.

The residents of Batavia Apartments/Mercy Housing will have the opportunity to choose gifts for their families at the Annual Gift Mart on December 9. Thank you for your generosity!

If you don’t have time to shop you can mark your offering - Christmas Gift Mart or give here online.

Geneva Christmas Walk.jpeg

'Tis the season to be jolly…especially in downtown Geneva! The festivities begin at the courthouse square at 6:00PM with the arrival of Santa Lucia, the first candy cane of the season, lighting of the great tree and Santa Claus – and continue with roasted chestnuts, strolling carolers and a live nativity. You can also visit Santa on Saturdays and Sundays and take a complimentary carriage ride throughout the Christmas season.

River City Church will be hosting a Christmas photo opp downtown Geneva for the Annual Christmas Walk. This is an amazing opportunity to for us to spread the word about River City Church’s Christmas Eve services. We encourage you to come by Margaret Matson Jewelers (312 S 3rd St, Geneva, IL) between 6:00PM-8:00PM (hours for Christmas Walk itself extends longer) to greet visitors and help us invite the whole community to our Eve of Christmas Eve services.
