We are so excited that you are visiting River of Life Church. We thought you might have some questions about us, so here are some FAQs and some information that we hope will answer your questions. If you think of anything else you want to ask, feel free to contact us.
“Where do I go when I get there?”
When you arrive on campus, parking is available on either side of the church. Once you are parked, head to the double glass doors towards the front of the building. When you walk through the doors at River of Life you will find people from all walks of life. You will be treated by some of the happiest people on the planet. Be ready for a hand shake and possibly a hug around the neck. You will be handed our weekly bulletin that will give you all sorts of information about our church and how to contact us if you need us.
“What should I wear?”
You will notice that we are laid back in our dress code. Our desire is that you feel comfortable in what you wear to church. Jeans, T-Shirts, flip flops and shorts are always welcome but if you want to wear a suit, shirt and tie or that new dress you just got on sale–that’s great too!
“This is my first time, what should I expect?”
If this is your first time at ROL, we will direct you to our welcome kiosk in the foyer and ask you to fill out an information card and give you a “Welcome Bag” to show you how much we appreciate you joining us.
Don’t worry, we won’t sell your name to a junk mailer or anything like that – we just want to have a record of your visit so we can connect with you and your family in whatever way you are comfortable with.
“Is there a place for my children to go to class?”
If you have children, someone will offer to take you to either our Kids Aquarium Nursery or our Kid’z Life Sanctuary, help you check your child in, and introduce you to a staff member who will be teaching and
caring for your children during the service. If your child has any special instructions or needs in this area, just let us know! You can feel safe leaving your children because all of our volunteers are background
checked and instructed on how to minister to your children.
“Now that my kids are taken care of, what then?”
Once you have dropped your kids off, you are welcome to come grab a cup of coffee or fruit-infused water in our foyer and spend some time getting to know others who are doing the same thing. Coffee and water are always free! When you enter into the sanctuary, there will probably be some music playing and people milling around and visiting. You can be sure that someone will greet you again, and you are welcome to just find a
place and make yourself at home.
“What are your services like?”
When the music starts, you will notice right away that we love to sing. Our worship team will be leading you in a mix of modern worship and some traditional songs. People will be standing, clapping, lifting their hands because after all, we’re celebrating a great God, right? We love for people to worship God any way that you feel comfortable worshipping. When our pastor preaches, you will be treated to a sermon that deals
with daily issues that we face. Combined with colorful backgrounds and video presentations, you will find the sermon to be easy to follow. Oh, yeah – bring a Bible if you have one. If you don’t, that’s okay too.
Just let us know and we’ll share with you.
“Where do I go after service is over?”
Finally, after service is over, don’t forget to pick up your children in the area where you left them. You will probably be greeted once again and invited to come back the next weekend. We are honored that you
chose to visit this page and we hope to see you this weekend!
