Welcome to River City Christian (formerly known as First Covenant Church of Sacramento)! Thanks for visiting our website. I hope that you find the information here helpful as you consider attending our church. We are a family of believers who are trying to follow Jesus Christ in our everyday lives. We believe that the Bible gives us relevant instruction on how to navigate the various experiences of life and that being a part of a vibrant Christian community will help us grow in our faith as we serve the world around us.


Here at River City Christian we often describe ourselves as a church with a high standard of holiness but with a huge hand of grace. What that means is that while we sincerely aim to live good lives, we trust God to forgive us when we inevitably mess up along the way.


We don’t pretend that we’ve got it all together or that we’ve got all the answers. But we believe in Jesus Christ and are seeking to commit our lives to Him and His teaching. We invite you to join us on this spiritual adventure.

I hope you’ll visit one of our services this Sunday and that you’ll feel welcome. While we are a larger church, our people are very friendly and there are lots of ways for you to connect. Surf this website to find out more. If you still have questions or just want to talk with someone, please feel free to contact us at info@rivercitychristian.org or at 916-861-2240.

God bless you!

– Pastor Jesse Smith
