Life is better connected.

We believe everyone has a next step, and joining a Lifegroup is a great way to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Check out our group offerings below as you decide your next step this season!

Core Groups

At River Valley, we have three Core Groups: Alpha, Freedom, and Explore. These groups are specially designed to lead you into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ by strengthening your understanding of our faith, challenging you to live a victorious life, and inviting you to explore your part in God’s global mission.

Core Groups meet during our Winter (January – April) and Fall (September – November) Seasons


Community Groups

We believe God created us to live in relationship with others so that we can grow in our faith, receive care in life’s ups and downs, and serve others. Connection is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why our groups exist—to make these life- changing connections relevant and accessible to you. Groups meet at all different times, days, and locations and there are hundreds of different groups to choose from.


Want to be a Lifegroup Leader?

Leading a Lifegroup isn’t about being perfect; it’s about investing in others by giving them a place to connect, grow, and serve. Leading a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet. We’ll resource you with the tools to make your Lifegroup a success through Leader Training and a Locator where you can list your group so others can find it. We believe people’s lives are changed one season at a time, and as a Lifegroup leader you get to play a vital role in that process.
