White Cliff Church is dedicated to teaching and discipling the next generation of Christians with instruction faithful to the Bible. We offer nursery for newborn through preschool and children’s church for K-6th grade. Children stay in the worship service though the Bible reading, prayer, and worship though singing then are excused for children’s study. Some parents chose to keep their children in the sanctuary though the preaching time. At WCC, families are free to choose. During children’s church, we teach from Genesis to Revelation using The Gospel Project resource. We encourage kids to keep a journal of what they have learned. Parents are encouraged to contact our children’s church team at any time. All of our team have passed a Ministry Safe background check and there is always more than one worker present with the children.
White Cliff Church seeks to worship the one true and living God in spirit and truth. Worship is more than music, and worship has both a vertical and horizontal element. When we lift our voices in congregational singing, we are both praising God and encouraging each other with biblical truth. When we sit under the faithful exposition of God's Word, we are both instructed and expressing reverence to God. When we worship through the Lord's Supper, we are treasuring Christ's sacrifice and encouraged by the mercy he has shown us. By worshipping through giving, we are both giving to see the gospel advanced and showing that we trust God to provide for our needs. Since the Bible is given to us by God himself, it is sufficient to instruct the church in proper worship of God.
Orton Ranch is a camp ministry of White Cliff Church located north of the city of Ketchikan along the Naha River. Orton Ranch exists to serve as a camping resource for Christians to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ and the work of his church. Orton Ranch partners with other Christian churches in Ketchikan to provide camping opportunities to Christian families but is overseen by White Cliff Church.

Care Groups are a small group ministry that meets throughout the week at different homes in our community. Care groups are a great way to connect on a more intentional level with fellow members, pray for one another, and learn about the Christian faith. At White Cliff Church, we encourage all members to participate in Care Groups. To view the different groups, check out the "our gatherings" tab.
