Missions

Jesus showed us a new way of living that has radically impacted our world for the past 2,000 years. He invites His followers to join Him, as His hands and feet, in furthering that impact as He continues to set things right in our lost and broken world.

At River Valley, we believe we are called to join Jesus in His Luke 4 mission of restoring beauty, justice and wholeness in our world. To that end, we mobilize our church family to enter our world as missionaries disguised as good neighbors… agents of grace, healing, justice and blessing… sacrificially living for the sake of others… in our local community and around the world.
