I'm New



Whether you are new to the area, new to church or a first time guest; our goal is for your visit to be comfortable and enjoyable.


Expect a full house. River of Life is a busy place, but we have reserved parking and seating for guests if desired. Just mark it on your submission form below and we will reserve a place just for you. If you would rather park and sit where you want, that's great, too! Just be sure to arrive early for the best options.

Expect to feel like you are home. Welcome home to family!

Expect to feel comfortable if you are dressed casual or dressed up. In Southwest Florida you get the full spectrum!

Expect some great music!

Expect the service to last from 1.25 to1.5 hours.

Expect to hear a Bible-based message.

Expect to feel comfortable with your children. River of Life does Church Together, which means you get to stay together as a family during worship and you will have the amazing experience of all ages worshipping together! If this is new to you, don't panic. There is plenty in the service that your children will enjoy. Following worship there is kids ministry available for 1st grade and under. Nursery for ages 2 and under is available the entire service. To learn more about what is available for your kids visit the tab below.


We love being prepared for company! To help us be ready for you, simply submit the form below. Then the day of your visit, head to the I'm New Kiosk in the lobby and we will have everything ready for you from kids pre-registration to a introductory packet. Can't wait to meet you!
