Here at Whitewater we are all about relationships, and not religion. Relationships with God and people.
We believe that in order to grow in relationship with God, there has to be connection and relationship with His people, the church. Don't worry introverts, we've got you covered.
Now that you have been attending on the weekend for a while, maybe you are looking for your next step. That's great, because we don't want you to sit in a seat too long and miss out! For some it is a conversation about Jesus or baptism. For others, it is calling Whitewater your home church. What is your next step?
MYwhitewater is where members manage their giving, groups, and directory listing. Think of it as a club where everyone is welcome.
