River Valley applies these “Connections” for our church body, in order to equip them to connect with Christ and have productive, abundant lives. We seek to keep Christ the center of our lives through these "Connections." WE “the church” purposefully worship Jesus together on Sunday mornings and help each other connect into Godly community through these connections.
WE LOVE by ‘Connecting One to Another, Connecting All to Christ.’ In Groups we learn to live together like Jesus lives – in loving obedience to the Father and in loving commitment to one another. (Acts 2:46-47)
WE GROW through our personal time and prayer with our Lord. We grow through applying the Bible to our lives and living faithfully to Jesus. We have resources to help you experience God and consistently meet with Him. (Hebrews 4:12)
WE GO at River Valley by serving within the various church ministries. We encourage everyone to regularly attend a Sunday morning service to worship Jesus and then stay for another service time in order to serve in a ministry area. You can also consider some opportunities during the week like being a Group Leader or serving with RV Students on Wednesday evenings. We Reach People & We Serve People! We also do this by going beyond our walls to serve others around Bastrop Co. We also reach, help, and connect by inviting people to come to River Valley. (Acts 1:8)
"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. Every branch in ME that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be My disciples." John 15:1-8
