COVID-19 Update

In times of crisis, we are still the church, but to protect our community and continue to minister through the River Hills Early Childhood Center, public access to our facility is closed except by appointment. This includes public worship, classes, RHUMCafe, and outside organizations. Please contact us at RiverHills@RiverHillsUMC.org or call the church at 952-890-2515 if you have questions or need to set up an appointment. For more details, click here for the pastoral letter that went out to the congregation or sign up for our email list to receive updates.

Virtual Worship

Join us for virtual worship! Services take place on Sundays at 9:00am (Traditional) and 11:05am (Praise) or on special occasions for Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals and Special Holiday services. Click here for Facebook Live or YouTube Live Stream. If you won’t be near a computer or you want to share the service with someone that may be challenged by technology, they can simply call in toll-free 1-877-870-4455 to listen. No additional codes are needed. Want more info? Check out our Virtual Worship FAQs. You can also click here to submit a picture of you and your family so the church can share familiar faces to help build community. If you have any additional questions, please email us at riverhills@riverhillsumc.org. We’re excited to worship with you!

Serving the Community - Shaping the World

 
Serving the Community – Shaping the World
Welcome


Located in Burnsville off HWY 13 close to HWY 35 and off HWY 77, River Hills United Methodist Church is a Christian congregation committed to reaching people with the good news of Jesus Christ, teaching and training believers to live as followers of Jesus in daily life, and loving the world for which Christ died, all to the glory of God.

We strive to extend the hospitality of Christ to all and to provide worship settings and a range of ministries that respond to diverse spiritual needs and religious backgrounds. The apostle Paul said, “I become all things to all people, in order that I might win some” (1 Corinthians 9:22). We agree with Paul. The gospel is for everyone, and so is the church.

How do I join in for worship?

We currently offer three options.  If you are comfortable with technology and enjoy the visual part of worship you can choose Facebook Live or YouTube Live. Use the links below to connect:

Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/RiverHillsUMC/

(Note: you do not need a Facebook account to view the service, but if you want to comment or interact with others during the service, you will need to be logged into a Facebook account.  If you are on Facebook, click the “Follow” button and you will receive an alert when worship is about to begin.)

YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/embed/live_stream?channel=UC0Tfz2h5qUq9c1oCTcr_EmQ

If you are a bit technologically challenged or want to share our service with someone who is not online, join us for worship by calling toll-free: 1-877-870-4455. No additional codes are needed. All callers are muted so you cannot be heard, nor will you hear others that call in as well. You can actually listen to previously recorded services, but you may have to wait patiently for the recording to begin, because there is often a 5-15 minutes of dead air before the worship begins. 

Our Sunday worship times are as follows:

Traditional Worship: 9:00 am
Praise Worship Service: 11:05 am

As you explore our site, feel free to contact us at 952-890-2515 or riverhills@riverhillsumc.org with your questions. Our church office is open by appointment only.
