I’m New

Welcome to The River!

We are creating a church that unchurched people love to attend and become fully devoted followers of Christ. If this is your first time here, you may want to check out:


What can I expect on my first visit?

From the moment you pull into the parking lot, you’ll be made to feel at home. Once you enter the campus our greeters will be poised and ready to give directions or answer any questions you may have. If you have children, you’ll want to take advantage of our safe and secure children’s services designed just for them. As you enter the worship center, our ushers will welcome you, and direct you to your seat. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience!

What time should I arrive?

We offer two main worship experiences each Sunday at 9am and 10:45am. Each experience also features excellent programs for children from 6-weeks through 5th grade. We recommend you arrive approximately 30 minutes before the service so you won’t feel rushed.

What will the experience be like?

From the moment you walk in the door, until the moment you leave, we are committed to a creative, compelling, challenging presentation of God’s truth in a safe environment. Pastor Chris communicates in a way that speaks to today’s culture. Chris focuses on how to apply Christ’s teachings to our everyday lives, so we each can experience God’s incredible purpose each and every day. The phenomenal music wraps the weekend message in a relevant way with an amazing diversity of artists and styles chosen for one purpose — to prepare your heart for what God has in store for you.

What should I wear?

The moment you step onto The River campus you will see people wearing shorts and a t-shirt while others may be dressed in a three-piece suit. Whatever you feel comfortable wearing, that’s up to you. We just want you to experience The River.

What about my kids?

RiverKids Nursery is for children 6 weeks through 18 months. You’ll find a loving and peaceful environment designed to care for and nurture children.

RiverKids Jr. is for children 18 months through K-5. It’s a high-energy environment that teaches the Bible lesson for the week through songs, drama and group participation. RiverKids is for children in first grade through fifth grade. Your child will experience age-appropriate teaching, music and fun activities designed to introduce them to a life-changing journey to follow Jesus Christ.

RiverKids is led by loving staff and volunteers who passed background checks and they have been approved by Senior leadership to minister in our children’s ministries. Plus, we have an excellent secure check-in/check-out system as well as a state-of-the-art paging system which allows us to contact you at any time during service.
