Both Sunday Morning Services

MEMBERSHIP

According to the Bible, church membership is a commitment every Christian should make to attend, love, serve, and submit to a local church. Because of this, we believe it is imperative to provide opportunities for our regular attenders to learn what membership entails within the context of River Valley Church regarding our theology, philosophy of ministry, vision, and pragmatics of how we function as a church.

Pathway to Membership

Step #1: Attend a Service
We worship together on Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00am. Both services are identical so take your pick. We teach straight out of the Bible, because it has the power to help us live this life with grace, love, and wisdom.
Step #2: Attend Starting Point
Starting Point is a great way for you to learn more about River Valley, our mission, Core Practices and why we do what we do. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and learn how you and your family can get connected in our various ministries.
1st Sunday of every month at 9:00am | Kids Ministry offered during class
Step #3: Join a Community Group
Community Groups are at the core of who we are as a church. Being part of a Community Group is a great way to get to know others in the church and develop long-lasting, deeper relationships. As we spend time together in these groups, we learn to care for each other and we motivate one another to become more and more like Christ by applying God’s Word to our lives.
Step #4: Attend a Membership Class
According to the Bible, church membership is a commitment every Christian should make to attend, love, serve, and submit to a local church. Because of this, we believe it is imperative to provide opportunities for our regular attenders to learn what membership entails within the context of River Valley Church regarding our theology, philosophy of ministry, vision, and pragmatics of how we function as a church. Attending our Membership Class does not automatically make you a member but will provide you with the information you need to discern whether River Valley is the church that God has called you to be on mission with.

If you are new to River Valley, please attend Starting Point prior to the Membership Class.
Join us for our next Membership Class on Saturday, October 2, at 9am.
Coffee, water, and a light lunch will be provided. Childcare for Infants-5th Grade will be provided for $5 per child, including lunch. Register for childcare HERE.
Step #5: Serve and Lead in the Church
We believe that God calls every Christian to serve in the church. Not out of obligation or to work for our salvation but simply as a joyful and grateful response to his love and grace. When we serve together, we get to know others and build relationships, we grow in compassion and humility and God uses us in ways we might never expect. There are many opportunities to use your God-given gifts to serve the church body, and your unique gifts can help further God’s mission at River Valley.
