RVC Student Ministries

Meeting kids where they are with the never changing Gospel.

River Valley Church Student Ministries

Matthew 28:19-20

We are a group of middle and high school students taking steps daily to follow Jesus & the great commission to “Go”. We want to connect with God and with other students. We love to hang out, serve others, worship, learn about our faith, and get rowdy and we love having other students check us out! You’re absolutely welcome to come as you are… there’s something for everyone here at RVC Student Ministries.

The big picture for student ministries is a discipleship model. We want to meet kids where they are in their faith journey and take them from that point and help them grow in their faith and knowledge of God.  Our Prayer is that when they graduate, they have a personal relationship with Christ and a faith that is their own.

Vertical Middle School | 6th – 8th grade

Philippians 2:1-11 |Vertical is committed to giving middle school students a well-rounded experience of the Christian life and focus on knowing God and imitating Christ as we grow spiritually and physically.  We want students to know who God is from the Bible and how knowing Him impacts their life.  “Vertical” ties in the knowing and growing in our relationship with Christ. Yes, we will have all-nighters, Jell-O parties, mission trips, and serve the needy right here in our community…. but why? Because we focus on discipleship and outreach in everything we do as we connect with God, friends, and leaders that care!

Reclaimed | High School

Ephesians 2:1-10 | Living life to its fullest by sharing experiences, sadness, joy, heartbreak, happiness, love, and laughter. Reclaimed focuses on helping high school students to know God, butwill also tie in that when we are in Christ we have been “reclaimed”.  We were once dead and now are alive.  That should impact our whole life and how we live for Christ.  Taking our faith and putting it into practice each and every day. While understanding that we do not have to do this life alone, that we are made alive in Christ, and that we can build strong ties that allow us to speak into each other’s messy lives! Through the changing seasons of school, friends, relationships, and family we are committed to building a community that helps your students take steps towards Christ and grow in their Faith.

ReVert Rooted Bible Study

Colossians 2:6-7 | A combined high school and middle school Bible study with various learning styles built in; meaning we will use lectures, videos, break-out groups, discussion groups, etc.

We meet every Sunday from 9 am – 10:20 am in the youth room.
