MIDWEEK

Go therefore and make disciples...

Matthew 28:19a

As a church whose mission is to, Glorify God by making disciples of Jesus who love one another and impact the world with the gospel, we take the Great Commission in Matthew 28 very seriously. Because of this, we are excited to offer Midweek Discipleship opportunities for kids, students and adults on Wednesday evenings. Adult discipleship will include classes in the River Valley School of Discipleship as well as men’s and women’s bible studies . We encourage you to explore the various opportunities on this page then register yourself and your family to join us as we pursue discipleship in Christ wholeheartedly as a church.

River Valley School of Discipleship

Wednesdays | September 4-November 20 | 6:30-8:00pm

The River Valley School of Discipleship (RVSD) was created to provide our people with the solid biblical foundation they need to grow as disciples of Christ. The RVSD offers three different core classes every semester with each one falling under one of our Core Practices of BELIEVE + BELONG + BLESS. Each class will help us internalize our faith and connect it practically to our everyday lives. Our hope is that everyone who calls River Valley their church home will complete the classes in the RVSD as they seek to live as fully devoted disciples of Jesus - growing to love, trust and obey him more every day.
Registration for the Fall Y1 classes closes Sunday, September 1st.

Gospel Change

Join us this fall as Christine Mester, Director of Pastoral Care, teaches Gospel Change in the River Valley School of Discipleship.  

Believe - BELONG - Bless
In Christ, our sins are completely forgiven, and we stand before God as righteous. This is past grace. In Christ, we have the promise of eternity with the Lord, free of sin and struggle. This is future grace. But what difference does the Gospel make for our daily lives? What is God’s present grace to us when we are facing life’s pressures? How does God make us holy in heart and behavior? Through teaching, case studies, readings and Scriptures, we will explore these practical questions.  

Please register and pay online to secure your seat in the class. Your $20 class fee will cover all resources for this class. 

Gospel Mission

Join us this fall as Mark Moore, our Lead Pastor, teaches Gospel Mission in the River Valley School of Discipleship.  

Believe - Belong - BLESS
What is the gospel? What is mission? What is the mission of the church? These are questions that individuals and churches must answer correctly in order to be faithful to the task God has given us to do. In this class we will see how the Bible answers each of these questions and then we will investigate how those answers impact our understanding of the church’s role in evangelism, social justice, and global missions.

This curriculum will be adapted and age-appropriate for your child. We encourage you to join us on these Wednesdays to begin to train up children in godliness, and be a part of setting them up for a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ for their entire lives. Childcare for Nursery and Toddlers will be offered as well. $20 per child with a $50 cap per family.
