WHO WE ARE:
The people of Rock Valley Chapel seek to be vessels of Christ-exalting joy both to the state-line community and to the world so that by God’s grace at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. (Phil. 2:10-11)
To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through biblical instruction, evangelism, discipleship, worship and utilizing every God-given spiritual gift and resource.
RVC’s Sunday Worship Service is from 10:30 – 11:45 AM
During the service there is childcare for babies and toddlers. All children are invited to join their family during the service. RVC is wheelchair accessible.
Please feel free to come as you are when you join us at RVC. We believe that a person’s choice to be at church is much more important than what that person chooses to wear. You’ll find a few people who are more dressed up, and many people who are dressed casually in jeans or khakis.
This is the time each week that will provide the opportunity for us to come together, meet God and learn about Him. We do this through a mixture of contemporary and traditional music, media, prayer, scripture and a message from the Bible.
We do pass offering plates on Sunday mornings, however this is for people who call Rock Valley Chapel their church home and choose to give money back to God as an act of worship. God is the giver of all good gifts to us, and it is right and fitting that we also learn to be good givers back to God as we say “thank you” for His blessings and become involved in helping others know the love of God we are experiencing. If you are visiting, please do not feel obligated to give. We would simply love to have you join us.
Each message is meant for us to better understand the Bible and our relationship to God and others – in a way that is relevant to our everyday life. Pastor Tim Johnson is currently teaching a sermon on Acts. The book of Acts describes how the early followers of Jesus the Messiah, guided by the Holy Spirit, became Jesus’ visible gathering of believers on earth. Acts fundamentally declares that by the power of the Holy Spirit, the Church, which is the Bride of Jesus, is called to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins to a lost world. The Church bears witnesses to the unfathomable truth that Jesus, as God, is capable of forgiving us of our sins thereby granting us a new life today and a guaranteed place in heaven for eternity through faith alone in Jesus. This is the Gospel, which, when proclaimed and lived out will “turn the world upside down” for God’s glory alone (Acts 17:6).
We celebrate Communion together regularly, usually the first Sunday of each month. Communion is not restrictive and anyone who claims to follow the Lord Jesus as Savior is welcome to participate during this time of reflection, prayer and thanksgiving. The bread and juice that is served represent the loving and complete sacrifice Jesus made on the cross in dying for our sins.
WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS??
At Rock Valley Chapel we love and appreciate children of all ages! We seek to provide a safe, clean and friendly environment for your kids to learn and enjoy.
As you enter the building, head down the hall to the right to find the nursery and toddler care areas. There your child will be welcomed by caring adults who will help them enjoy church as much as you do.
Children are welcome in our worship services.
From 8:45 – 10:00 am, children of all ages are welcome to attend a Sunday School class for their age group.
During the service, nursery will also be provided! Because we recognize how valuable your children are, we do not just provide childcare. Our Nursery Ministry desires to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child where his or her physical and emotional needs can be met while separated from you for a short time. We have separate rooms for Infants (birth – 18 months) and Toddlers (18 months – 3 years).
