Sugar River Building Re-Opening Plan

Sugar River is actively working on a plan to phase in re-opening our building.  At this time we have not set a date but we are looking at setting criteria to keep safety of our congregation and community as our first priority.  We look forward to the time when we can see you again in-person.


About Us

A note from Pastor Gary

Sugar River is a church where all are welcome.  
Our vision to Connect, Grow and Serve in our relationships with God and others doesn't just happen within the walls of our beautiful building.  We are a mission outpost for serving those in a time of need.  
Our Pastor, Directors and Staff are passionate about Christ and how to share His love with others.
We pray that you will trust us enough to come see who we are and join us in a worship service, a core group, or a service project.
