WHAT TO EXPECT
Visiting a new church can be intimidating and overwhelming. We want you and your family to feel comfortable as you attend one of our campuses. At all locations, you will experience:
A Welcoming Atmosphere
When you arrive at a River Church service, you will enter your campus’s main lobby. You’ll be greeted by a friendly smile from one of our greeters. There will be some refreshments for you to enjoy on us, and you can check your children into River Kids. There will be a 5-minute countdown to let you know when service will start, so you can be sure find a seat before the service begins!
Each service starts with a time of energetic, passionate praise and worship. We use this time as an opportunity for families to encounter God’s presence together. Once worship is over, our service host we dismiss our 1st-6th grade students to River Kids, we greet the people around us, and we share a few announcements about what’s happening at our church through video and live communicators.
An engaging message
Video and live communicators flow right into the weekend’s message. Most weekends, our Lead Pastor, Jeremiah Randleman communicates the message. As a multi-site church, the message is streamed via video at our Prophetstown campus. Each service closes with a brief time to respond to God in worship and prayer, which is hosted live.
A Safe & fun learning environment for your kids
Our River Kids ministry provides an amazing weekend experience at every service and campus. River Kids (1st- 6th Grade) are dismissed after worship and return shortly after the message. Early Childhood (1yr-Kindergarten) can be checked in 10 minutes before service, where our team will register your children and give them a name badge with a parent pick-up tag. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or special requirements during the check-in time. We provide you a pager, should we need to contact you during service. At the end of the service, simply show your parent pick-up tag to the security personnel at the check-in counter, and a teacher will release your child to you.
a “Come as you are” environment
You are welcome here! There is no dress code for attending services at River Church. Some attenders dress casually and some dress up—come as you are!
