Women’s Bible Study Groups

The Quest by Beth Moore

This group is full. Registration is closed.

Mondays beginning February 19 | 6:30-9:00pm | 6 weeks offsite

In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. Let the crooked punctuation mark be the map that points you into a closer relationship with the Father.

This new Beth Moore study will be held at Tami Keigley’s house beginning Monday, February 19.  It is a 6-week study and will end on March 26. The study journal for this study can be purchased on for $14.99.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tami at

Care Ministries

Pastoral Care Team

Our Pastoral Care Team cares for people who are hurting in our River Valley family. We aim to show up when there is a crisis or need and come prepared to listen and pray. We visit those who are sick, meet with those who are hurting, and encourage with scripture and prayer. People from our team are available to pray with you during Sunday services.

Training is required. If you would like more information, please contact Christine Mester,

SS Hope

SS Hope (Send Someone Hope) cares for the physical and practical needs of our church family. The needs vary depending on circumstances, but we often make meals for those who are sick, do light house cleaning for those who are overwhelmed, and provide care packages for those in the hospital. These services and more are given in the love of Christ to give hope during difficult circumstances.

SS Hope team meets once a month for planning and updates. Anyone is welcome, but attendance is not required. We can simply add your email address to our mailing list if you would like to periodically help with needs that arise.

To join our group or to make us aware of a need in our church family, please email Julie at
