Alpha is a Core Group that unpacks what River Valley believes. It answers questions like Who is Jesus?, How do I read the Bible? And Does God heal today? The format is simple: We share a meal around a table, listen to a talk on the week's topic, and then have discussion together to learn more. Our Fall semester will begin Monday, September 18, at 6:00pm. Dinner will be served each week, and childcare will be provided on a limited basis. A separate registration will be required for childcare. This group will meet for 10 weeks and will end on November 20.

There is nothing more exciting than living a Spirit-filled empowered life! This Bible study will instruct, encourage, experience, and inspire you to walk in all that Jesus has made available to you through the infilling of the Holy Spirit, and the gifts that He imparts. These gifts are vital and need to be used to be effective witnesses for Him. In this study, you will learn about the unseen world, which is called the Spirit realm. Even though we don't see it with our physical eyes, we interact with it daily. You will also learn in detail about each of the nine gifts of the Spirit and how they are used throughout the Old and New Testament by ordinary people. Finally, you will have the opportunity to deepen your relationship with the Lord through the lessons on prayer and intercession. Are you ready to get started? There will be homework. This will be an interactive group, so please plan to be prepared to share weekly what you are learning from the Holy Spirit. This group is eight consecutive Monday nights. It begins on Monday, September 25, and ends on Monday, November 20. Childcare is available on a limited basis. A separate registration is required. NOTE: If you have not been through the River Valley 'Alpha' core group yet, we would strongly encourage you to join that small group before attending Empower. It will be helpful to you to receive what God has in store for you.

Explore is a Core Group designed to inspire and enlarge your global heart as we study the biblical basis of missions and hear from some of our great missionaries. At River Valley, our heart is global because God’s heart is global. That’s why we believe that every follower of Jesus Christ should explore and know their role within God’s Great Commission. Explore will begin on Tuesday, September 26, and will meet from 6:30-8pm at the Minnetrista Campus by the Fireside. It is a 7-week group and will end on November 7.
