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.
