We want to do everything we can to make your visit a positive one. Whether you’re coming back to church or you’re trying it out for the first time, we know it’s a big step. Our prayer is that you would feel welcome and find a new home with us at The River.

Plan Your First Visit

We don’t need to make it complicated – dress how you like, try to arrive a few minutes early, and meet us at the Connection Center so we can get to know you and give you a thank you gift for joining us!

If you’re brand-new to The River, we invite you to complete this New Visitor Form before you arrive. We’ll offer you the same form when you stop by the Connection Center if you don’t fill it out online.

The River is a non-denominational, Bible-based church. Please click here for our tenets of faith, accompanied by scriptural references, that largely summarize the atmosphere and spiritual posture of The River.

First and foremost, expect a Spirit-filled environment, dynamic praise and worship, and the unadulterated Word of God. Our congregation is multicultural, multilingual, multigenerational, and includes individuals and families with an array of backgrounds and upbringings.

While we don’t have a strict dress policy, we do ask that you remain mindful in how you present yourself in a place of worship. Some wear T-shirts and jeans, others wear suits. Tattoos, piercings, and vibrant hair colors are all welcome. The River is a place we want you to feel comfortable while also honoring the House of the Lord.

Bring ’em in! The River offers classes for children from birth – 6th grade during all of our adult services. We encourage you to jump to the Kids Life page for full descriptions of what classes look like for different age groups, safety and check-in details, and more.
