Yes, we are meeting in person, but we recommend everyone follow guidelines for minimizing possible transmission of “germs,” including coronavirus. We assume you know the risks since they have been broadcast EVERYWHERE, and by joining us at our facility you accept that risk as your own personal responsibility. RVCC, it’s staff, management, or attendees are not responsible if you end up sick.*
*[Legal stuff…you know how it is. Lawyers gotta make a living, too…]

If you are at-risk, not feeling well, or not comfortable joining us in person STAY HOME! That’s okay! If you’re sick let us know, we will pray for you! You can always keep watching our services live-streamed on our YouTube channel at: www.youtube.com/user/RiverValleyLakeElmo if you feel you are “at risk.”

Sunday mornings we have one of our classrooms set aside with strict physical distancing and masks required. We have the YouTube stream playing so you can be here, see the service, but interact with as few others as possible. We also broadcast the audio on an FM micro-transmitter into our parking lot so you can stay in your car if you feel you need to join us that way.

No one is forcing anyone to do anything, and there is no condemnation! We love you and want to accommodate everyone we can at whatever level you feel necessary.

As usual, our sermon audio and video will be posted and available here on the website as soon as we get it edited and processed following the services, so you can continue to access that like always.



The first one was so good, we might as well have another evening of worship and prayer! This time it will be hosted right here in Lake Elmo Sunday evening January 17, 2021 at 6pm.



Keep up on (or get into) a daily Bible reading habit. Jump into our 2-year program! Each day’s reading is linked on our Facebook and Twitter pages every morning at 6am weekdays, and 6:30am on weekends. There are also printed copies of the whole program available in the foyer on the Info Table by the restrooms.
“For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” —2 Timothy 1:6-7

Do you really believe that what you believe is really real? Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project® is a DVD-based small group study that practically and personally introduces viewers to the truth claims of God. This study is facilitated by Tom and Carla H. in Room W1.

Join Dennis & Cathy D starting next week for “Being Strategically Aware!” In this class you will learn to plan, to see the course set before you clearer! To be forewarned is to be fore armed. Learn What your weapons are, and know how to use them! Mark 4:13-20 What is your soul founded in?

If you would like to donate to RVCC and it’s ministries, etc. mail or drop off a germ-free check ( ;P ) at the church office, or use online giving with your bank debit card at www.rvcc.info/donate.



RVCC guests who are hard of hearing can now amplify our service audio through their personal Assistive Listening Device (ALD).



We live-stream and record our service, so your presence here constitutes your consent to be photographed, filmed, and/or otherwise recorded, and for RVCC to use the recording without compensation in any and all media for as long as it exists.
No, we’re not anticipating making a boatload of money off of an image of the back of your head, or you worshipping with your hands in the air…but we figured it would be a good idea to let you know you could end up on our livestream, social media, etc.
