What To Expect In Our New Facility

We are in the homestretch of opening up our new facility at River Hills Church! The last six years have been an incredible journey and finally we are taking a HUGE next step in “Bringing Truth and People Together.” As we grow closer to the opening of our new facility many of you have questions about changes, time-lines and expectations – so I wanted to take a moment and answer some of the most common questions:

When will we begin to meet for worship in the new facility?

Great question! Our objective is to be in on November 10 or 17. This could be prolonged if inspections or work is not complete.

Where Is The New Facility?

I know this sounds like a weird question, but knowing how to get there and the address are two different things. The building is located at the corner of Argonne Road and Highway 53 (Hog Mountain Rd.). We are about one mile from 316 and two miles from downtown Winder. The actual address is 416 Argonne Rd. Winder, GA 30680.

What kind of changes will take place in the kid’s ministry?

Tons! Age groups will have their own space and worship experience during the service on Sunday mornings – which is relatively normal. What will be different is how the ages will be divided up. There is a room dedicated to infants with an attached quiet room for nursing mothers. There is a separate space for 0-2 year olds as well as huge meeting spaces for pre-school, k-3rd, and 4th-5th. This is going to dramatically change the way we can do ministry in our children’s ministry. We also have a massive PLAYGROUND!!!!

What about student ministry?

Students will continue to join adults during the Sunday morning worship services. However, students will have their own separate worship/gathering space on Sunday and Wednesday evenings – and during 3D. They will have a HUGE 75 seat auditorium!

When will we start two services?

Our plan is to move into the new facility as quickly as possible, but we will only have one service (unless there is limited space). On Sunday January 12 we will have our grand opening, start our 2nd service, and re-launch our 3D small groups. This is going to be a BIG Sunday for RHC – so begin pray about who you will invite.

What can I do?

There are two major things individuals in our church and do. First of all please show up for our work day on Saturday November 2 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. We will finish up landscaping, paint, lay carpet, clean and get ready to open up the building. Secondly people can give above and beyond what is normally given. This will enable the church pay for thing in cash as we complete the facility. The easiest way to give is online through our website.

I cannot wait to see all that God is going to do in the next few weeks – and I’m so excited that you are a part of the journey.
