River City UMC’s Story

Being a multisite congregation gives River City UMC a lot of advantages. Because we belong to a larger and more established church, we immediately have a youth group and can be a part of large mission events, such as foreign mission trips and health clinics and have access to resources that most church plants aren?t not. We have a deep partnership with St. Matthews UMC that will help River City grow to a self-sustaining church. St. Matthews and River City United Methodist Churches are convinced that we can reach more people in Louisville, KY with the love of Christ together than we can apart.

River City United Methodist Church will launch weekly services beginning Sunday, October 18th, 2015 at 10:30AM. Our meeting space is located at the Louisville Campus of Campbellsville University, 2303 Greene Way, Louisville, KY 40220.

“My family & I enjoy the fellowship and acceptance at River City. Even with our Catholic upbringing, we feel welcome at River City. Pastor Derek has welcomed us to participate in all Church functions and the congregation has the same open-arms mentality. We are thankful to have become involved in a congregation like this.?

“We enjoy the open, inclusive and relaxed atmosphere at River City. Through their message of outreach and involvement in the community, it allows you to truly see how God works in every one of us.?

“I love how welcoming River City is! The congregation isn’t all that similar to me in terms of age and life situation, but I still feel like I belong, which is pretty great. I also really appreciate how empowering and uplifting the sermons are while still being realistic and honest.?

Church of the Promise’s Story

In January 2002, three people began to meet in the Chapel of the Center to read scripture communally and to pray. The agenda of the meeting was to discern if planting a church in Portland was the next right thing to do. This humble prayer meeting evolved into the Portland Promise Community of Faith, a mission-based faith community of the United Methodist Church that met for worship on Sundays and provided volunteers and leadership for the Portland Promise Center programs.

In 2005 the Portland Promise Center purchased a historic warehouse located at 1800 Portland Avenue with a vision to create a hub for spiritual, economic, and leadership development. In 2012 several families from the Portland Promise Community of Faith, with the support of the United Methodist Church, launched a new church called Church of the Promise. The new church renovated a section of the warehouse and took up residence in what they named the Promise Building. In 2015 the church established a non-profit organization called Promise Community Development Corporation. The CDC purchased the building and began to dream of ways to address the economic challenges in Portland through social entrepreneurialism.

The dream turned into reality in the fall of 2015 with the opening of the Table Caf??a sit-down restaurant that serves locally grown food with amazing taste, at an affordable price, where all can enjoy the flavor of community. The Table operates under a pay-as-you-can model and provides a place where our neighbors can dine with a purpose.

The seasons of planting seeds of God?s love and watering those seeds with faith and hope continue. God will cause the growth, and only time will tell where this great story goes next.

We would love for you and your family to join us and to be a part of this amazing story!
