CHRIST IN YOU:  A Study of Colossians

Tuesdays, June 19 – August 14, 9:30 – 11:15am

8 weeks with July 3rd off | Childcare available

The secret of the fruitful and joyful Christian life is not found in harder work or greater discipline.  Christ in you is the secret.  This is the secret shared to all in the book of Colossians.  Christ is in you!  He is your hope, your strength, your energy, your victory!  He is where your faith needs to be placed.  Each lesson of this 8 week life-changing study includes Scripture reading, study questions and in-depth notes.  This is a non DVD study with homework, but the homework is so worth it!  As the riches of Colossians soak into you, you will find your heart of faith changed.

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
