ANNUAL EASTER EVENT
We have two family based big events that we put on for the community for free each year. Our first one is a community based Easter Egg Hunt. We've chosen to serve our community with this free event every year because it was during Easter that Jesus died and rose again for each one of us making a way for salvation. We hope that families will step further into the Easter story and discover how important it is because of what Jesus did.
ANNUAL HALLOWEEN EVENT
Halloween (meaning holy). Jesus is the Holy Light of the World and it is this light of life that caused us to reevaluate what we do halloween night. So rather than close the curtains and turn off the lights, we have chosen to do the opposite. We turn on all the lights and welcome as many families into our church as possible. We hope that by creating a good safe family space within our church building and within our lives that night, that families will be drawn to Jesus Christ, and that by freely loving our community, they will be drawn into the same life giving relationship with Jesus that we have.
RVCC'S FIREWOOD HEAT ASSISTANCE
Since 2018, RVCC has been providing firewood to Grand Forks and the Boundary to help folks stay warm. This assistance is for folks who have no other means or options and will go cold without the assistance. This program is an emergency use program only. Firewood Heat Assistance Applications become available in October/November when it starts getting cold out. We deliver firewood in single pickup loads only and more will not be delivered until the last load is almost fully consumed. Our desire is that no one sits in a cold house with no means to heat it so we ensure that the assistance goes to those who are desperate and need it most. If it is cold, if you have no other options, this program is for you. Applications will be available on our website first, then can be mailed to or dropped off at RVCC, so check back in October/November to fill in an application if you think this program is for you. All information will be kept confidential and it is expected that applications will be filled out completely and to the best of your ability. We hope we are able to help as many folks as possible stay warm this winter.
IGNITE YOUTH GROUP
GRADES 7 TO 12
Ignite youth group happens every Friday night from 7 to 9:30 at RVCC. We strive to create a safe and fun environment for teenagers to come hang out, play games, meet new people, and get to know who God is. We also have Bible study that goes from 6:15 to 6:45 before youth every week.
Follow the youth account on instagram to see what is happening every week.
KIDS MINISTRY IS EVERY SUNDAY MORNING DURING THE SERVICE
Every Sunday following worship we have programs for kids and youth downstairs. We offer fun and engaging lessons that will help your kids learn more about God! We have a program for kids 11 and under and also for youth ages 12 and up!
YOUTH BIBLE STUDY
GRADES 7 TO 12
Every Tuesday we have a youth Bible study at the church run by Emma. It goes from 6:00pm till 7:30pm. In this time we have snacks and drinks and read through our Bible study. It is a great time for teens to learn about God and get to know one another!
MENS AND LADIES NIGHT
MENS NIGHT: Mens night is a great place to connect and have fellowship with other godly men. We will be doing the "Breaking Free from Fear" Bible study this fall and some social gatherings as well. To be a strong church, we need a strong community that every man feels a part of, valued in, and invested into. This comes from a strong Biblical understanding of the Word, and to be spirit led through the Word, towards relationships and brotherhood.
LADIES NIGHT: Ladies night is all about women coming together! Learning from each other, growing in friendships and most importantly, stepping into what God has for the women of RVCC. We will also be doing the "Breaking Free from Fear" Bible study this fall.
Legacy Builders is a group that meets in the prayer room right after church on the 3rd Sunday of every month. We bring our own lunch and fellowship before and after the meeting. We have a short devotional and discussion following and a time of prayer. There are two kinds of legacy: one we receive from people who have spoken into our life and the one we leave. Our focus has been the legacy we leave by praying and supporting the youth in the church and their leaders.
