Plan your Visit
Welcome to White River Christian Church. We’re so happy that you are here - discovering who we are, what we believe, and where you can fit into all of it. If you’ve never visited us for services before, we want you to feel at home from the moment you drive into the parking lot to the moment you leave.
Who we are
We hear people describe us as a large church, with a small feel. Visitors like our biblical teaching where we open our bibles every week and study God’s Word and seek His direction for our lives. Our mission statement is “connecting every life to Jesus,” and that is what we strive to do.

Hamilton North Staff
We are so excited that you are considering a visit to White River Christian Church. Our mission is to connect every life to Jesus, and that starts as soon as you pull into the parking lot.
Once inside, please visit our Connections team at Guest Services in the lobby. They will be happy to assist you with finding the auditorium, coffee area, restrooms and checking in children if needed, plus we have a special gift for you.
We want you to have a moment with God. We believe that you and your family will connect with God in some way when you're here. We never make you stand up and say your name if you're new. We let you remain anonymous. We just want you to feel at home.
What should I wear?
Come as you are and you'll fit right in. A majority of adults wear what is called 'business casual'. Of course, some wear the t-shirt and shorts combo while others wear something more dressy.
What's in a weekend service?
Before worship, you can grab a free cup of coffee in the lobby and meet other folks. We usually start with an upbeat song from our band and then have a few more songs to sing (it's okay if you don't know them at first). We celebrate the Lord's Supper every week for all those who have accepted Christ as their Savior, share in an offering time and one of our teaching pastors speaks and teaches from the Bible for about a half hour. We offer a decision time at the end if you need prayer, want to join White River Christian Church, or become a Christian. All in all, the total length is about 75 minutes.
We have programming during worship services for birth - 5th grade as well as special needs programming for both children and adults. Learn more on our Children's Ministry Facebook page.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of service to allow time to add your children into our system and get them to their classes. You can also give us your family's info here before your visit to speed up the process. Go to the Next Gen station where you will be able to check in your children and find your child's classroom.
For the safety of your children, we have a check-in system that gives your child a tag with a code on it. When you pick your child up, you turn in the tag and sign them out. During service, if we need you for any reason, our system will text you at the phone number you provided at check-in.
To save time and make your very first child check-in experience a breeze, preregister your child(ren). This enables you to use any of the self check-in stations located in any of the Children's areas - just type in your cell phone number, and select the child(ren) being checked in!
