Both Sunday Morning Services

River Valley Church Newsletter March 7th, 2019

Life can cause us to be broken in many ways—physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

In Mark 5:21-34, we meet a woman who is isolated and desperate because she is broken in every one of these ways. Her desperation causes her to come to Jesus by faith, believing he can make her whole. Like this woman, we too must come to Jesus believing that he alone is capable of meeting our needs in every way.
We hope to see you this Sunday. Bring your Bible and a friend and we'll see you there!

Membership Class

Are you considering becoming a member of River Valley Church? You are invited to join us at one of our membership classes where you will learn all about our theology, philosophy of ministry, vision, and pragmatic aspects of how we function as a church.

Attending the class (must attend part 1 and 2)  does not make you a member, but it provides you with the information you need in order to pray and discern whether or not River Valley is the church that God has called you to join and be on mission with.

If you are new to River Valley, please attend Starting Point before attending our Membership Class.
