We want to let you know how White River is responding to the situation surrounding COVID-19 and answer some frequently asked questions.
Is White River still having weekend services?
Yes! You can worship in-person at all locations or online.
What I can expect when I visit in-person?
If you're considered at-risk, we encourage you to worship with us online. We can't create a no-risk environment, but we're working to create a low-risk one. Learn how we're working together to create a safe environment for everyone.
Is programming available for children and students?
In-person programming will soon be returning for birth-kindergarten, as well as 6th-12th grade students. Family Services are designed for families with elementary age children.
