service times & locations


Various times & locations

Backyard gatherings where 20 or less people meet to enjoy one another, watch the service together, and discuss ideas prompted by the message and other parts of the service. Each Home Church has a host who works hard to provide a welcoming, warm atmosphere where in a smaller group we can grow in friendship and our relationship with Jesus. We are wanting more hosts and locations for River Home Church. If you are interested in finding out more, please email and we will get in touch with you right away.


9am Sunday on our YouTube Channel

All of our services will be available on our YouTube channel and on our website under Listen. In July we will experiment with recording the live Norris service, with the hope that we will be able to either live stream it to your home for family viewing or River Home Church gatherings. If we are successful in live streaming, then all will be able to view at the 9:00 am hour. If we are only able to record the live service, it will most likely be available by about 5:00 pm on Sunday. This may cause some River Home Church locations to change their meeting times. Check with your host.

water baptism

Water Baptism is an outward expression of a saving relationship with Jesus and participation in a local church community. We host water baptisms during our beach services at various times throughout the year. If you are a follower of Jesus, part of the River Church family, and are ready for baptism, complete the baptism request form.


Partnering with God and The River Church family to lead and nurture your child to love God and others. 

The Parent/Child Dedication ceremony recognizes both the care of God and the importance of the commitment of parents and the church family to provide healthy spiritual nurture for all children. We ask that parents who desire to dedicate themselves and their children to God:
  • Have and pursue a growing relationship with Jesus.
  • Are regular participants in The River weekend worship gatherings.
  • Open themselves to relationships in community through the church.
If you are interested in dedicating yourself and your child, please fill out the Parent/Child Dedication form.
