What Can I Expect?

How Long Is The Service Time?

In total, a River service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the River Worship Team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the worship portion of the service one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's The Culture At the River Like?

Weekends at River Church are relaxed, casual, and exciting. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What About My Kids?

We want your kids to have a blast at church every single week - and at River Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our River Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the River Kids experience. River Kids is offered at every service from birth through Grade 5.
