Both Sunday Morning Services

Come With Us

 River Valley Student Ministry exists to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus
who love one another and impact the world with the gospel.

We give students  from sixth grade up to college age regular opportunities to experience a safe, welcoming, and exciting community where everyone has the chance to be known and learn about God. Whatever your background, we want you to know that you are welcome here.  Students today have options available to them at every turn. The world is at your fingertips. We want River Valley Students to be a place you want to be in light of all your options. Through many types of opportunities to connect and be involved, we know you will find a place with us. Come have fun, play sports and games, watch movies, eat some food, meet friends, go on trips, and live life with us. As you come with us, see how Jesus changes everything and loves you completely. We want to challenge you to come. Come and see what God is doing in River Valley Church through a growing community of middle school, high school, and college students.

Weekly Events 

Our regular weekly programming takes place during the school year. The goal of everything we do is to provide opportunities for MS and HS students to build friendships, have fun, pray, worship and study God's Word. Take a look to see how your student can get connected and grow in their love for Christ.
