Douglas Grant has launched innovative programs as a teacher for San Antonio public schools. In addition to serving as a teacher, Douglas Grant is now a counselor for South Texas Rural Health Services. Doug Grant also worships at River City Community Church.
In addition to weekly worship, River City offers several programs tasked with educating members and reaching out to the San Antonio community.
Many River City members are part of small groups of eight to ten individuals or three to four couples. Participants meet three or four times a month to support each other, pray, and discuss the Bible. Before joining, prospective members sign up for Grouplink, a two-hour event that connects persons in similar life circumstances.
Another tool for growth is River City University, composed of classes and groups organized into five domains: marriage and family, Biblical studies, foundations, support and recovery, and pastoral leadership.
Real Life Christian Assistance ministers to the community on the third Saturday of every month. On that day, persons in need can select free items from a food pantry and enjoy a hot meal. Visitors also have the opportunity to buy gently used clothes and swap children’s clothes for different sizes.
