Welcome to White Rock Fellowship. We exist to declare and demonstrate the gospel of Jesus through lives of worship, community, and mission.

Our worship services are defined by the Gospel and our continued need for the unending grace and love of Christ. Every aspect of our service strives to center around that.

Our heart is that our Sunday mornings equip our people to take the good news of Jesus into the world.
