WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS THIS?
Rocky River Church is a casual, come as you are, contemporary church. We are a church for people who have never been to church as well as for those who have given up on church as “usual.” Our beliefs are mainline evangelical. Click here for an overview of our basic beliefs.
WHAT TIME IS THE SERVICE?
We have three identical Sunday morning services at 8:30am, 9:45am & 11:45am. Our services last about 65 minutes. We encourage you to arrive about 10-15 minutes early, especially if you have young children. This will give you time to get your children checked into RiverKidz and for you to find a good seat prior to the service starting.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
When you arrive, our friendly Parking Team will help direct you to an open spot. From there, just follow the signs and the sidewalk to the front of the building. Along the way there will be greeters who can help you should you have questions.
You will receive a bulletin (program) on your way into the service. This program will include message notes, important information, and a connection card, which you will turn in at the end of the service.
If you have children, nursery age through 5th grade, be sure to stop by the children’s registration table to get them checked in to our RiverKidz ministry. Infants, toddlers and preschool aged children will go straight to their rooms. Children K-5 will be dismissed right after the worship music. Parents, once we dismiss the kids after the worship music, you are welcome to walk your child to their room (which is VERY easy to find) and help him or her get settled. Then you are welcome to come back into the worship center for the day’s message. Mom and dad – your kids will LOVE our RiverKidz ministry. In fact, they will probably drag you back the next week!
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
We are a casual dress, come as you are church. At Rocky River Church you’ll find people wearing jeans, tennis shoes, sandals, and even shorts. But seriously, dress up or dress down, we don’t care. What matters to us is that you are here!
WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE?
Our goal every Sunday is to teach the timeless truths of the Bible in a way that is engaging and applicable to your life. You will find that the messages are practical, easy to understand, and grounded in Scripture.
