riv communities

We are not meant to be alone and we need other people to fully live out our calling.


The Gospel isn’t only what we hear on Sunday mornings, but how we are changed day by day, and how we live out our lives in our unique communities.

A riv community is a multi-generational group of 20-30 people that meets twice monthly. These communities meet in homes or other public spaces all around the Lansing area. While we gather during weekend services as a large church family in each of our venues, this is a chance to invest in, and be connected with, those that live near you.

We’ll talk about life and how our faith intersects with what’s going on currently in the world and in our lives. There might be food, some hanging out, conversation, some video, maybe music, serving opportunities; but overall just a place to be with others and have a chance to know others.

  • Multi-generational groups of 20-43 people meeting up around Lansing, based on geographic proximity
  • Meets twice a month
  • Missional in the community, while in community

Being in community isn’t just for your own benefit, but for the collective good of your immediate community and the greater Lansing community.

Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, according to Christ Jesus, so that you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with one mind and one voice. Therefore welcome one another, just as Christ also welcomed you, to the glory of God.
- Romans 15:5-7
