“Our mission is to search for those who do not know Jesus, as well as believers who wish to acquire a deeper knowledge and develop a stronger personal relationship with Him. We will minister to those in need and serve as a model of Christianity for our community.” 


River Valley is home to ordinary, imperfect people striving to live life in a way that is pleasing to God. It is a church of 200, where people feel welcome and loved as they experience joy in and within Christ. There are a number of vibrant ministries ongoing at RVCC—Worship, Men’s, Women’s, Youth, Missions, Pastoral Care, and Outreach. Community engagement has been a priority within the church, and many opportunities to introduce unchurched members of the community to what RVCC offers have been grasped. Packed with impacting, relevant messages that help believers throughout the week beyond, River Valley works to help people build stronger relationships with God and with each other, so they may experience a life of peace and joy while being rooted in their purpose.
