You may wear whatever you want. There are some people who wear suits and ties, but many go more business casual (slacks and a button shirt), and still others wear jeans and t-shirts. It’s important to remember that God looks at the soul, not at the suit.

We offer 4Life Youth Ministry for children age three through 5th grade as well as nurseries (infants, crawlers, walkers—newborn through age 2) during each of our worship services. Our electronic kids check-in system  will allow you to have peace of mind during services. And, our Jesus-centered kids programming is so fun and engaging your kids will beg to come back!

Our address is 4900 Prospectus Drive, Durham, NC 27713. We are located at the far end of the complex. Look for the flags leading to the main entrance. Please call -919-433-0333 or email us at if you need any help finding our church.

The River Church has several worship environments that are designed to feel comfortable but not overwhelming.

Each service has just enough people so that you won’t feel alone, but not so many that you would feel lost in a crowd. We are a place that is personal, accepting, inviting, but not overbearing.

Our services feel very connected and personal as each service has roughly 350-400 people.

We do bring an offering, but it is for our members and regular attendees. If you are a visitor/guest, please do not feel obligated to give.

When you attend an event or program by The River Church you enter an area where photography, audio, and video recording may occur.
