Bible Study for All Ages 9:30-10:15 am
Morning Service 10:30- 11:30 am
What to Expect
At River Valley you’ll find a casual atmosphere, contemporary music with an occasional hymn, biblical, relevant messages and friendly people, many of whom are open to pursue fellowship beyond Sunday mornings.
A typical Sunday service includes 15-20 minutes of singing and prayer, announcements, an offering, a 25-30 minute sermon, and a closing song. We sporadically have times of special music, videos, puppet skits, testimonies of what God has been doing our lives, a Missions Moment, a question and answer time, etc.
You should feel free to dress casually. You can stand and sing - or not; you can simply listen if that is what you want. You won't be the only one, if that is what you choose to do. The morning offering is an expression of worship - and we don't force anyone to worship! For the most part, we let you know during the service what we are going to do and what we would like you to do - stand, sit, sing, watch a video, listen to someone read some verses from the Bible, fill out the Prayer Card, etc.
About 20-25 minutes into the service, after singing, prayer and the offering, we dismiss children ages 6-12 for "Children's Church." We have a room in the back of the hall where these children learn age appropriate lessons, usually re-enforced by doing a craft. It is not necessary for children of this age to attend; they can stay i the service, if that is what the parents want them to do. We'll be happy to introduce you and your children to the Children's Church teacher before the service if you'd like.
Childcare is available on Sunday mornings. Nursery is for ages up to 5 years old.
We typically celebrate the Lord's Table the second Sunday of each month.
Currently, we are a relatively small, but growing church of between 45-55 people each Sunday morning.
