Our History

On Easter 2006, River Church South held its first regular worship service in the “Old Schoolhouse” located behind the Cabin Restaurant at the intersection of Routes 44 and 22 in Ascension Parish. After 10 years, we knew that it was time to look for a more permanent place to worship; and the Lord graciously provided us with a building owned by the city of Gonzales. It had once held the old First Baptist Church of Gonzales. After extensive renovation, we held our first service at 320 East Ascension Street on August 7, 2016. With God’s grace, River Church South will continue to grow. We invite you to help write the next chapters in our story of worship and service in Ascension Parish.
